FASTING IS NOT a hunger strike. It helps you to overcome addictions, and gives God a chance to strengthen your resolve.
“‘When you practice some appetite-denying discipline to better concentrate on God, don’t make a production out of it. It might turn you into a small-time celebrity but it won’t make you a saint. If you ‘go into training’ inwardly, act normal outwardly. Shampoo and comb your hair, brush your teeth, wash your face. God doesn’t require attention-getting devices. He won’t overlook what you are doing; he’ll reward you well.’”
Matthew 6:16-18 (msg)
God’s presence will be strengthened, and your mental and physical condition will be refreshed.
