[[Dan 9:3]] KJV And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:
Fasting is one of the best ways to have intimacy with God. The power of the spirit is trapped in intimacy: having a deep reasoning together affiliation and mental intercouse with God. Prayer in fellowship. In prayer, we don’t ask for things, rather we share intimacy.
Daniel in the above sought the face of God through prayer. To seek God’s face is an expression of one’s desperate desire and hunger to more of God. Through fasting, we are able to focus and stay our mind on God in prayer. And He’ll “…Keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” *(Isa 26:3).
As we fellowship through intimacy predicated on prayer and fasting, we are united with deeper dimensions of Almighty God. Deep calleth unto deep *(Psa 42:7). He shows us more of Him. And as we look, we are changed into what we see from glory to glory *(2co 3:18). Hallelujah!
Fasting is not something we do when we want something from God; it’s a divine romance. Fasting is an intimate intercouse with divinity. Glory! And in those holy mingling, we are forever changed. Hallelujah!
Dear Lord I worship and adore you today. I fill my mind with thoughts of you, loving you to pieces in my heart. Words are not enough. I more than adore you even right now in Jesus’ name.
