Thoughts on Fasting

Thoughts on Fasting

From Ezra 8:

To find a right way:

1) For Us v.21 (Ezra 8:21)

2) For our Children v.21

3) For our Substance v.21

V.23 – They fasted and God was intreated.

V.22 – They were ashamed to ask the king for soldiers to help against their enemy since they had publicly stated God would help.

V.31 – God’s hand was on them and helped.

From Isaiah 58:

Fast to:

1)Loose the bands of wickedness

2)Undo heavy burdens

3) Set free the oppressed

4)Break every yoke

From Matthew 6:

Fast secretly and let God reward you openly.
