We love food. This can make fasting difficult for us, especially if we’re not used to it. However, it’s worth the sacrifice because spending time in prayer and fasting can be very rewarding.
There were many instances in the Bible when fasting brought about deliverance. During a period of prayer and abstaining from food (or another type of sacrifice), doors can be opened, healing can rain down from every corner of Heaven, and spiritual breakthroughs can come forth from their hiding places.
