Fasting Week Three
The Secret to Hearing God’s Heart For You – Week Three
To catch up:
“Remember how the Lord your GOD led you all the way in the desert these forty years to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger, and then feeding you manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.”
We’re in week three of the series on “The Secret to Hearing GOD’s Heart for You,” and we’ve been focusing on the topic of Fasting. Last week Doreen discussed some resources and practical tips to help you get started. This week Doreen will share about the types of fasting and the incredible benefits.
If we’re honest, most of us today would say fasting is too hard or inconvenient, or unpopular, or even unnecessary. But followers in the faith over the centuries understood fasting, or affliction of soul, or self-denial was the most sincere and serious way to demonstrate worship, adoration, repentance, and proper posturing or “fear of the Lord.”
