Fasting is so important! An article by Richard Foster explains it well, “Fasting helps us keep our balance in life. How easily we begin to allow nonessentials to take precedence in our lives. How quickly we crave things we do not need — until we are enslaved by them. Paul wrote, “‘All things are lawful for me,’ but I will not be enslaved by anything” (1 Corinthians 6:12). Our human cravings and desires are like a river that tends to overflow its banks; fasting helps keep them in their proper channel.”
The primary purpose of fasting is firmly fixing our hearts and bringing our flesh to submission through discipline. More than any other single discipline, fasting reveals the things that control us.
