Fasting brings us closer to God by creating a pang of hunger in our lives. It shows us that what we need it to live on the word of God, the bread of life. Stovall Weems says in his book,
We fast so we can have a closer relationship with our father in heaven. When we fast, we are reconnected with God, freed from distractions and the bondage of things of the flesh.
Have you ever wished you could touch God? Or wanted that you could be in a personal, intimate relationship with God as Christ was?
So many times, our day to day lives distract us. Suzy Chapman has freed herself from the day to day distractions through the discipline of fasting. She has found a new, fiery relationship with the one she calls father. Suzy said fasting helps her to dial in on God's signal in her life, much like we do on a wifi signal. It becomes our lifeforce.
Take a moment and listen to her testimony that she shared this morning with us in worship.
