The people ask,?Why should we fast when the Lord never notices?? ? Isaiah 58:3
Help me remember You are omniscient and omnipresent, ever attentive to me.
P S A L M
Fasting for the sake of fasting is useless. There ought to be a reason for our fasting. Fasting ought to direct our thoughts and efforts to the call to holiness. Fasting from the full complement of one day?s meals helps us to realize that we do not have to be in submission to the cry of our bodies and passions all of the time. We have a moral responsibility to exercise self-control regarding all of our appetites whether they are for food or pleasure. As such, fasting in relation to any of these can be a helpful spiritual exercise if we direct it properly.

BREAKING THE UNJUST FETTERS
It ought to be impossible for any Christian to live in peace while there are people who are unjustly treated anywhere in the world. This may sound a little unreasonable but let us reflect upon it for a moment. It is certainly true that God will never rest at peace while there is still injustice in the world and it is from this basis that the same can be said for all who are seeking to develop the heart of God for His people. At the same time, it is important to note that I am not saying that everyone is necessarily responsible for the injustice that may exist. We may or may not be practically able to contribute to its elimination. However, at the very least we can be praying that someone will be actively working against whatever the injustice may be.
