When Ye Fast – Part 5

3 Comments

Excerpts from Joy Haney’s book, “When Ye Fast”:

If receiving the Holy Ghost was all that mattered, then why did the early church have to be dealt with again and again about their carnality? Because it is a constant war between the flesh and the spirit. In order to keep the spiritual man alive, there has to be continual vigilance and cleansing. Fasting, prayer, and the application and meditation of the Word is how this is accomplished.

Fasting and prayer should change you for the better. It should make you more pliable to the Spirit and more compassionate, not proud and haughty.

Isaiah 58:5 “Is not this the fast I have chosen?”

Fasting should be a lifestyle the Christian enters into after he is saved.

  1. Real words of wisdom! Why do we neglect this aspect of our spirituality so often?

    It indeed should be our lifestyle.

    Blessings to you.

    Hello, Tim. Thanks for visiting my blog.
    Well, we neglect it because, it’s not very fun. 🙂 I have found that the more I fast, the more my body gets disciplined to fast. It doesn’t make it easier but, it makes it easier to make the decision to fast. Does that make sense?
    Blessings to you, too.

  2. This is a good reminder that fasting is a positive thing, an opportunity to be better, more like Him.

    So often we think of it as a negative, giving up something.

    Wanting to be more like Him ~ Mindy

    That’s good, Mindy. I’m with you on wanting to be more like Him. Neglecting the flesh draws our spirits closer to Him. It’s worth it, that’s for sure. 🙂 Love you.
