Enjoy the Rewards of Fasting!
The rewards of fasting are tremendous! There are spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical benefits from going without food for a period of time. The length of a fast could be anywhere from one meal to forty days.
Fasting greatly increases spiritual alertness and authority. When the disciples asked Jesus why they could not cast out an unclean spirit that was tormenting a boy, Jesus answered, “This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting (Matthew 17:21).”
