Fast and Pray. Fasting alone isn’t sin, but eating isn’t sin either. Instead of jumping onto the fasting fad that even the world is beginning to embrace, be sure that God is the central focus so that your look in the mirror isn’t the central focus. Remember that the devil will take a good thing and make it a detriment. This he cannot do if we buffet our bodies with humilty before the throne of grace. There is no sin in fasting for your health. There is no sin in going to the gym for your health either. But these can become gods if we leave God out. Jesus is our example who was consumed with zeal for God. When we seek God, there are times we need to “weep in our soul with fasting”. So fast and pray. Psalm 69:10.
