A Call to Fast in October
The following is a word of encouragement from Jake Kail:
This past Sunday I preached a message on how fasting can bring spiritual breakthrough. (Click here to listen to the message). Simply put, fasting is to abstain from food for a spiritual purpose. There are different types of fasting in the Bible, and we can also broaden the practice to include fasting things other than food (For example, fasting from social media or your favorite TV show).
Fasting is an important spiritual discipline that helps us grow in our walk with God and can help bring needed spiritual breakthrough. It is a way that we can intentionally humble ourselves before God and prioritize the spiritual above the natural.
As we approached the month of October, I sensed the Lord was calling me to a season of fasting. I want to invite our church body to join with me in fasting in some way during this month.
Some practical examples might be:
-Fasting from lunch for a week, and taking that time to pray instead
-Picking a day (or more) during the month to not eat any solid foods, and to spend extra time praying
-Fasting from social media for a period of time
-Fasting from coffee or desserts for a period of time
There are many ways that we can fast, and I encourage you to pray and ask the Holy Spirit if there is a way that He would have you to fast this month. Let’s keep praying and contending for all that God has for us!
