The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose.
Fasting does not change God’s mind. It puts us in a position to receive from God. Fasting is not starving yourself; but simply separating yourself from something you would normally do in order to spend time with God and His Word. When we do this, it helps us to tune out the influences of our physical senses and enables us to hear from God.
TYPES OF FASTS
• COMPLETE FAST
This fast calls for drinking only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
• SELECTIVE FAST
This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, or bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food. For more info on the Daniel Fast, check out this resourceful website here.
• PARTIAL FAST
This fast is sometimes called the Jewish Fast and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.
• SOUL FAST
This fast is common for those who do not have much experience fasting food, who have health issues that prevent them from fasting good, or who wish to refocus certain areas of their life that are out of balance. For instance, someone might select to abstain from using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast, and then choose to carefully bring that element back into their life in an orderly fashion at the conclusion of the fast.
