Did you know there were many different types of fasts in the Bible? There are absolute, normal, and partial. We are doing a partial fast. The partial fast involves giving up particular foods and drink for an extended period of time. Fasts also last for different amounts of time. The Bible talks about 3 days, 7 days, 21 days, and 40 days. But it also makes reference to a half day fast and a 24 hour fast.
My challenge to you is if you haven’t been doing the 21 day fast with us, it is not too late! You can make the choice today to jump on board and do a 13-day fast! God always blesses us when we make sacrifices to seek His face.
“So are the saints and pioneers of faith down through the ages.
And they’re all saying—shouting—You can do it, in Jesus’ mighty name! Go for it! Think big! Dream without boundaries! Be limited only by what He limits. Change the world!”
Thoughts for your Journal:
1. How can this fast give you supernatural insight?
2. Reflect on how there is great power and supernatural blessing that awaits the man or woman who forsakes all flesh for the chance to know their Savior and hear His voice.
It’s never too late….
