It is important that we take time out of our busy lives to fast. The Word says WHEN you fast, not IF you fast. We have to put down the food, TV, and music and focus on the word of The Most High. He wants to do great things in your life. Some things can only be done through prayer and fasting.
Matthew 17:20-21 KJV
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
There are different types of fasts: The Daniel Fast, fasting from sunrise to sunset, and countless others. No matter which one you choose to do, remember to not brag about fasting.
Matthew 6:16-18 KJV
16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
