I am a fainter. All it takes is skipping one meal, or being stressed, or nervous, or any one of several other circumstances and I will faint. It has happened several times in my life. I am used to it. But it has yet to happen on a day when I am fasting.
Wait, go back, what is fasting? Fasting is not eating for usually 2 consecutive meals while concentrating your thoughts and prayers on specific needs. Here is a great article on fasting if you are looking for more info.
In my religion we use the first Sunday of every month as a day to fast and pray. We call it Fast Sunday. So you see it happens quite frequently, which is why it's weird that I have never fainted on Fast Sunday. Especially if it's a rare Sunday when I get up and share my testimony with the congregation, and I still don't faint. Are you kidding me?!? There has to be something helping me, strengthening me.
I believe that the Lord is strengthening me when I excersise faith in him. I have faith that the Lord will sustain me. And he always does. Each and every time. Coinsidence? I do not believe so.
I am grateful that we can come closer to the Lord through fasting and prayer. We can receive answers to prayers. We can receive Divine inspiration directly from the God. Fasting is a wonderful blessing. I have faith in it. I have seen it work in my life. If you need direction, or answers, or just desire to come closer to God I invite you to try fasting with prayer.
