How To Fast Properly For God

# A section from a brief: “Don’t do it: buying kilts with credit cards”

In a friendly and straightforward tone:

One of my friends learned about travel hacking by reading blogs on the Internet. He told me he’d figured out how to buy plane tickets using points earned from credit cards that offered rewards. I thought he was joking at first because I didn’t understand how credit card companies could afford giving away plane tickets just by signing up for their cards. But he insisted it was possible!

He had even purchased his wedding suit using points from one of his cards. The only downside was that he had no remaining points left on his card because he bought an expensive suit instead of cheaper options available in store.

I decided not try airline miles myself because there are no direct flights between my city and any others (I live in one of the smaller cities in Canada). However, I started looking into hotel rewards programs which seemed like they would work well since hotels usually have locations all over each province or state within North America (for example Hilton has properties across Canada) but did not want any annual fees associated with specific brands like Hilton Honors Platinum Plus as well as other costs associated with signing up such as paying interest on purchases made prior to hitting

Be obedient.

Remember, obedience is the key to a successful fast. You must do whatever God tells you without question. This will ensure that your fast is effective.

As a rule of thumb, if God asks you to do something and it’s difficult or unpleasant for you, it’s probably a good idea to obey Him. If He asks you not to eat chocolate cake and then offers up an alternative dessert item that tastes like sawdust in comparison…well, most people would find it easier just to eat the cake anyway! But God doesn’t want us following our own desires; He wants us obeying His commands instead of our own (1 Corinthians 7:37).

Get prepared.

  • Get your body ready.
  • Prepare your mind for fasting.
  • Prepare your schedule for fasting.
  • Prepare your heart for fasting.
  • Do not eat on the day before you start your fast, and then eat normally at breakfast time on the first day of fasting (or skip breakfast if that is easier). You may have a cup or two of coffee or tea, but no solid food until lunchtime on that day’s fast; this will help ease off any physical withdrawal symptoms from caffeine or sugar and make it much easier to get through the day without eating very much at all! If you usually drink alcohol in moderation, we recommend abstaining from it during Lent as well though since alcohol causes dehydration which can lead to headaches and fatigue so try drinking lots of water instead!

Spend time in worship.

Worship is the key to fasting. You cannot fast for God without spending time in worship. Yes, it’s that important. Worship is an integral part of fasting because it helps you focus on God and your relationship with Him. In addition to helping you focus on what you are fasting for, worship also allows you to draw closer to God and can be a tremendous blessing during your fast.

Identify what you want out of the fast and commit it to God.

  • Commit to God.
  • Identify what you want out of the fast and commit it to God.
  • Be specific about your desires and ask Him to help you achieve them.

Learn to rest in Him. Take the pressure off yourself.

For many years, I have had the tendency to get overwhelmed and stressed out by my own expectations of myself. Whether it’s in my business or ministry, or in my personal life and relationships, I find that there is always something to do. There are always people counting on me and people waiting for me to deliver results. And as a result, there is often much pressure on me to perform at the highest level possible all the time.

It was only after learning how important rest was for our bodies that I realized how important rest is also for our souls! Resting in God means trusting Him completely with everything—your business success; your marriage; your friendships; your family members’ lives—and letting Him handle them all for you so that you can relax knowing He has got this under control! Trusting God means not worrying about what other people are thinking about themselves because those thoughts are not yours anyway…they belong solely within their minds (which ultimately belong only within God). Trusting God also means not worrying about what others may think of YOU because those thoughts will fade away quickly when compared with eternity itself—the place where every single person who ever lived will spend an eternity if they believe in Christ alone (1 Corinthians 15:19-23).

Trust the Lord and don’t fight temptation with your own strength

  • Trust the Lord: When you’re fasting, it’s important to place your trust in God and not in your own strength. It’s okay if you get tempted; that happens to everyone at some point or another. Just don’t give in to temptation!
  • Don’t fight temptation with your own strength: If you are tempted, don’t try to resist it by yourself. Instead of fighting the urge with willpower alone (which will only make things worse), ask God for help instead! He will give you the strength needed because He loves us so much!
  • Keep going: If we want our spiritual lives to grow stronger then we must focus on doing good deeds rather than worrying about what others think about us or what they might say behind our backs about our actions (or lack thereof).

How to fast for God

  • Fasting is not a way to lose weight.
  • Fasting is not a way to punish yourself.
  • Fasting is not a way of punishing others.
  • Fasting is not about showing how strong you are or making yourself feel better because you fasted for so long, although this can be one of its many benefits.


You will soon see the benefits of fasting if you keep at it. Just like anything else, you need to exercise prayer and fasting muscles. You have to get them in shape just like any other muscle group. The more you do it, the easier it gets. I pray that those reading this article have a wonderful time fasting and God blesses you with a productive time with Him. It is my hope that the Father hears your cry for help and answers your requests quickly!
