Fasting is a natural discipline that brings supernatural results. Fasting is abstaining from something like food, drink or entertainment for a period of time to create some type of benefit in body, mind or spirit.
There are many types of fasts, which includes:
- Standard fast (water only)
- Daniel fast
- Partial fast (restrict certain food/drink)
- Intermittent fast (only eating during a small daily window, or one meal per day)
There are many variations on these fasts, but they can all have spiritual benefits when we devote the time spent eating to focus on Jesus and serving others.
