Fasting is commanded in the Word of God. Jesus said, “when” you fast, not “if” you fast (Matthew 6:16-17). Yet fasting is virtually a lost practice among believers. As a result, we are missing out on tremendous power for fulfilling God’s destiny for our lives.
Fasting not only cleanses the body and sharpens the mind; it also makes the spirit more sensitive to the voice of God. And if we are sensitive to God’s voice, we can better hear what He is saying to us about our writing.
If you are facing a wall in your writing – whether in the actual writing or in the process of publication – try fasting. It may just give you the breakthrough you’ve been looking for.
