The goal of fasting is to draw near to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and restores us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for the IMMEASURABLY MORE God wants to do in our lives.
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
— II Chronicles 7:14
