Fasting Right

We fast not to twist God’s arm so He will pay attention to us. We already have His undivided attention. We don’t fast in order to make ourselves worthy of His acceptance. We already have His uncoditional love.

We fast not so He will hear us but for us to hear Him. Not for Him to focus on us, but for us to focus on Him. To train our soul and flesh to be still and to know that above all, He is God and the lover of our souls.
