Day 21–Breaking Your Fast

Congratulations!  You have made it to Celebration Sunday!

Here are some tips for breaking your fast:

Physically:

Don’t overeat when the time comes to end your fast. Begin eating solid food gradually; eat small portions or snacks.

Spiritually:

Expect Results!

If you sincerely humble yourself before the Lord, repent, pray, and seek God’s face; if you consistently meditate on His Word, you will experience a heightened awareness of His presence (John 14:21). The Lord will give you fresh, new spiritual insights. Your confidence and faith in God will be strengthened. You will feel mentally, spiritually, and physically refreshed. You will see answers to your prayers.

A single fast, however, is not a spiritual cure-all. Just as we need fresh infillings of the Holy Spirit daily, we also need new times of fasting before God. A 24-hour fast each week has been greatly rewarding to many Christians.

It takes time to build your spiritual fasting muscles. If you fail to make it through your first fast, do not be discouraged. You may have tried to fast too long the first time out, or your may need to strengthen your understanding and resolve. As soon as possible, undertake another fast until you do succeed. God will honor you for your faithfulness.

Prayer Focus:

Thank You, Lord, for carrying me through the past 21 days.  Thank You for guiding, directing and strengthening me in my faith.  Continue to fill me with Your Holy Spirit daily.  Keep me close to You and consistently in Your Word.
