Isaiah 58:6-7 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, And to let the oppressed go free, And that ye break every yoke? 7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, And that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; And that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
Real fasting is not about just going without food. It is about real change taking place in our behavior. It was basically about getting our eyes off of ourselves and onto Him. It was about God being the center and focus of my life and not my own life, my own self.
Real fasting would be focusing on Him and His purposes which would mean that everyone else gets first place and I take last place. That goes against everything in us and that is the point.
Do we still fast? Do we need to fast? Think about it but think about much more than just not eating!
