Yesterday Gloris called us to chat about dealing with worry and anxiety as she and her husband walk through some serious health issues.
Something she shared with us merits a broader conversation, I think. She mentioned that she had been fasting throughout the day, just consuming liquids. She told us her focus on the Lord was sharpened as she meditated on Scripture and His presence was so every evident. It led to peace.. and even joy!
“While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.”
(Acts 13:2-3) NASB
Have you ever tried fasting?
What kind of fast did you do?
Food or something else?
What was the result?
Was there a spiritual breakthrough that followed this?
Did you receive an answer to prayer?
Specific guidance for an import decision?
