Fasting Sharpens Faith

    Fasting is a help to faith. Jesus declared, "This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting" (Matt. 17:21). A praying man is a fasting man, and a fasting man is a believing man. When we fast, we cut ourselves off from food, we separate ourselves from the outer world as to nourishment. In spiritual fasting we walk apart. Fasting is separation from this evil age. We leave the world that is devil-dominated and hell-bent, and walk with God.

    We expect nothing and receive nothing from this wicked world. This is real fasting. Abraham never saw the city in the heavens until he turned his back on the mud plains of Chaldea. Fasting for God's work is a holy business. If you fast strongly, you will believe and work mightily.

    When the Apostle Paul spoke of the many things that witnessed to his approval as a minister of Christ, he spoke of "fastings" (2 Cor. 6:5) and "fastings often" (2 Cor. 11:27).
