Fasting – Biblical or Hype

Every Lent we go through the same rigmarole of looking at biblical scriptures and reflecting on the cross. This Lent let us examine the state of our hearts.
Psalm 35:13 “But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into my own bosom.”
Fasting is how medicine tells us to renew our physical body, but the bible has already been pointing to this for years before the secular world has been promoting it .
Fasting allows the Holy Spirit to get us to the brokenness that allows transformation to happen.
It is voluntary as we need to be in a place of desperation (desire to know our God intimately) to want to take action (fast). It is a choice if done with the right intention in whatever format cannot leave you unchanged.
