2019 Fasting Dates
48 HOUR FAST
Matthew 6:16 starts out by saying, “When you fast.” This past January we took time to bring the first to the Lord and one of the forms we displayed our attention and devotion to the Lord was in the area of fasting. We took 10 days and set them apart as an offering, as a spiritual connection, and as devotion to the Lord.
Throughout those 10-days the Lord began to speak to me about living a fasted lifestyle. One that is set-apart. That comes in many forms but one of those is to intentionally choose to fast throughout the year.
In 2019, God has shown us this is a year of preparation. I’d love to have you and our Church Family join me in fasting throughout this year. We will be taking the end of the month and set aside 48 hours to fast. I’d like to encourage you to take this seriously and not just some small token, to really fast. I would encourage you to incorporate food and technology in your fast. Ask the Lord. He will be faithful to respond to you.
Maybe food-wise you need to go water only for those 48 hours, or a Daniel Fast (fruits and vegetables), or eliminate carbs, or sugar or caffeine, or whatever the Lord reveals.
Maybe for technology you need to eliminate news, or social media, or television shows, or games, or whatever the Lord reveals. The point is to take something that can be a distraction and eliminate it for a period of time to grow closer to the Lord, to hear His voice, and to live a fasted life.
Don’t just eliminate but make an effort to connect with your Heavenly Father, let the Testimony of Jesus encourage you, and the Holy Spirit refresh you during those times.
Some of you will resist this but here is my question, really it’s Annette Stansbury’s word for the year, “Why not?” Why not fast? Why not do something different? Why not expect a deeper connection with the Lord? Why not?
Join me in 2019 as we learn how to live a fasted life.
Start 5pm Tuesday and End 5pm Thursday.
