Welcome to Transformation Church (TC) 21-day fast! Whether this is your first time or your tenth, no two fasts are the same. It will be just as new, fresh and real the tenth time as it is the first – so we are all on equal footing here.
The purpose of fasting is to take time out of our busy schedules, deny ourselves food and/or certain types of food and drink and call on God to intervene with supernatural power in our natural existence. In several instances in the bible, fasting is always linked with prayer. Prayer and fasting are components of putting God first, honoring him and seeking his favor and protection (Esther 4:16, Matthew 17:21).
In Mark 9:21-22, Jesus seems to be saying that in malicious situations like this, fasting gives our prayers focus and resolve. We are believing God this year and in this fast to realign our lives back to His original purpose, plan and design. During these 21 days, we will be asking the Lord to open our eyes to see things we have never seen, to give us faith like we have never had, and to show us compassion beyond anything we have ever experienced. What an incredible journey these twenty-one days will be as we fast, pray, and grow together. I believe that God is about to do an amazing work in your life.
Fasting has a way of bringing every part of your life into focus in ways nothing else can do. If you will allow your moments of hunger and cravings to serve as reminders to stop and pray, you will find closeness with your Heavenly Father like you have never known. I have experienced this personally, and believe the same for you. If you have any medical concerns about fasting, please check with a physician before you start.
Once you take this first step and go without that first meal, you have stepped out of the comfort zone and into the faith zone – into the supernatural.
