Today, Destiny Pointe Church marks the first day of our 21 Day Fast. Fasting is spiritual, scriptural, and powerful tool to draw closer to God. In Matthew 6, Jesus lays out three things followers do. He said, “When you give…When you pray…When you fast…” He made it clear that FASTING was a normal part of the Christian life as much as giving and praying.
Here are a few quotes from Jentezen Franklin’s book, “Fasting”. Be encouraged today!
“Fasting has been the secret to obtaining open doors, miraculous provision, favor, and the tender touch of God upon my life.”
“Fasting releases the anointing, favor, and blessing upon the life of a Christian.”
“Fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose.”
“Fasting has the power to unclutter the things of this world and brings a sensativity to the things of God.”
“Whenever you begin a fast, remember, if it doesn’t mean anything to you, it won’t mean anything to God. Without being combined with prayer and the Word, fasting is little more than dieting.” – Jentezen Franklin
