Discouragement and a lack of motivation dominated Matt’s heart. The previous two Julys had been the most difficult times of operating his business.
The stress had taken its toll and Matt didn’t have the strength to push on anymore. Desperate for a change, Matt sought the wise counsel of a mentor who encouraged him to FAST in order to find clarity and renewed strength.
Three days without food, coupled with deep prayer and meditation on the Word, refocused Matt’s heart and provided answers only God could provide.
In Matthew 4:4, Jesus in the midst of a 40 day fast says, “It is written, ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
Fasting helps us connect and depend on God at a deeper level.
