Historically I have discovered that during a time of prayer and fasting my feelings fluctuate. The result is that my perception of how I am progressing is affected. Remember, you cannot judge by feelings what you are doing by faith.
How you feel and what you believe are seldom the same. Prayer and fasting is a “faith” exercise. Faith is based on truth (God’s word). We believe God’s truth, so we act in faith.
In Matthew 6:18, God’s word tells that when we fast God will “reward you” – the word reward here means to “recompense someone positively” – it’s a term that refers to something that is good and/or beneficial.
Fasting is beneficial! When you conclude this 21 day exercise of faith, (prayer and fasting), you will look back and say, “The pay-off, was worth the price.” You will be glad you participated in iPray to begin 2012.
