A Reason To Fast


A reason to fast is because an ounce of performance is worth more than a pound of promises! Nothing compares with undeniable results. Results will eat theory for lunch. The story is told of a blind man that Jesus healed that was challenged by the Pharisees. The Pharisees made a “good point” theologically. They said (I paraphrase): “Give glory to God, Jesus is just an ordinary guy. Hence a sinner.” The man replied them(I paraphrase): “I don’t know whether He’s a sinner or not. You should know since you’re theologians…but one thing I know; I once was blind but now I see”. Results just had theory for lunch!!!

There are results you long to see in your life. You know them. My friend, there are certain results that can only be produced by fasting & prayer. Listen to Jesus: So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.” (Mark 9:29)

We at GFH are embarking on a 21-day fast, themed: “Breaking Barriers” beginning from the 22nd of August 2011. (For our friends outside of GFH, you’re free to join in… or do a part of the fast).

Have you ever fasted? Share an example of the results you got after fasting.
