Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Edith Schaeffer. She said: "Is fasting ever a bribe to get God to pay more attention to the petitions? No, a thousand times no. It is simply a way to make clear that we sufficiently reverence the amazing opportunity to ask help from the everlasting God, the Creator of the universe, to choose to put everything else aside and concentrate on worshiping, asking forgiveness, and making our requests known-considering His help more important than anything we could do ourselves in our own strength and with our own ideas. "
Our fasting devotional today is titled "THE DANIEL FAST: CURATIVE HEALING" from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book "Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough".
God has promised that prescriptive healing can come by faith and prayer. James 5:15 says, "The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up." Faith and prayer must be joined. Faith is an instrument of healing when it is joined to the tool of prayer. Even when you have faith and pray, it is still God who heals, or maintains health. The Daniel Fast rests on a three-platformed foundation: (1) faith, (2) prayer and (3) fasting.
Kevin Romine, a student at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, sat through my course "Spiritual Factors of Church Growth" during the summer of 1994. One of the assignments is to fast for a project, and/or faith event. Kevin had injured his back delivering packages while working to put himself through seminary. He was not only disabled, but he was also in intense pain. Often he had to stand in my classroom because of back pain.
