Day 16: Seeking Understanding – Rev. Jonathan Rager

Through Fasting, I seek a clear understanding of God’s Will for my life and His power to carry it out.

Joel 2:12 and 13a “That is why the Lord says “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.

Fasting is not done very often, especially when it pertains to finding out God’s Will for your life. Jesus fasted in the desert. Everything Jesus did during his earthly ministry was an example for us to follow. Jesus spoke to the Father with these words “not my Will but thine be done.” Jesus showed us how to battle Satan by quoting Scripture and He also showed us how to gain spiritual strength by fasting. When you deny physical wants and needs such as food from your body, the Holy Spirit will fill you with the fruit of the Spirit called “self-control”. This supernatural “Spirit control” will lead you in winning the battle against sinful habits and also discovering what God’s Will is for your life.
