Does anyone know the spiritual or religious reasoning behind fasting? Just interested
I posted this earlier in a different category and dont know how to close it sorry:)
Yes, there are a lot of verses in the Bible about fasting. It is a time when we go without food and certain activities in order to draw near to the Lord in prayer, worship, and Bible study. It is not enough to just not eat, if we are not pursuing Him -- we need to be filled all day with Him. I always look forward to fasting now, that I have learned that it is less about food and more about my heart.
In fact, here is a website called Trumpet and Torch, and they have a lot of information about fasting; they have a whole program. I just did the 10 day fast with their accompaning book (my neighbor gave it to me) and God spoke to me so much. They really help you to see the heart behind fasting so that it will be a beautiful time, not unbearabe : ) LOL!
