Welcome to everything you need to know about the Daniel Fast
Questions you need to know the answers to before you start the Daniel Fast:
Why do we fast? Throughout Scripture, we find numerous men and women entering into times of fasting: Job, Jonah, Esther, Isaiah, David, Jeremiah, Daniel, Joel, John the Baptist, Jesus, John and Paul. Fasting is interwoven throughout the Bible as a normal and acceptable practice in our faith. It’s not a rule born out of the church doctrine or tradition. Rather, as many men and women are discovering today, fasting is a tool created by the Father to help bring His Children into closer communication and relationship with Him.
What is a fast? In the Bible fasting is about food. It’s about restricting all or some foods for a spiritual purpose. In addition to restricting or changing our eating habits, fasting always has to do with our spiritual life. Without that aspect, it’s just a diet. You can and will lose weight from a fast, but this should not be your primary or only goal.
What is the purpose of fasting? The purpose of fasting is to draw closer to God. This is an intentional choice to “turn down the noise of the world” and focus on your relationship with your Father. During the fast we
need to go to God in prayer listening for Him by meditating on his Word and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal areas of concern that during the course of your fast you would let the Father
provide intervention and direction for your life. The power of fasting has less to do with food than with setting
yourself apart for a specific period of time to focus more on the Lord, prayer, and worship. In other words, the power of fasting is found when you consecrate yourself to the Lord and discipline yourself to focus on Him. That’s how your spiritual experience is enhanced through fasting.
