Idlewild Family – we are beginning 2021 by intentionally seeking the Lord for 21 days through prayer and fasting. And we want you to join us.

 

Our hope is to create holy habits that will radically change the way we live and seek Christ.

 

Holy Habits

Prayer

Prayer is a great resource that God gives His people. Prayer is the opportunity for us to commune with God – to speak with Him, and to listen to Him. Prayer brings one to a throne of power and authority, but also a throne of grace, to all who are in Christ. Therefore, let God’s people draw near to God with reverence, with joy, with great expectation, and especially with confidence that belongs to the sons and daughters of the King of Heaven and Earth.

 

Fasting

The goal of fasting is to draw near to God. Fasting is removing what we think we need to be reminded of what we actually need. Fasting is giving up something we love for someone we love more. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives.

The Bible speaks about spiritual disciplines that God has created for us to develop intimacy with Him. One of those disciplines is fasting. Fasting is removing what we think we need to be reminded of what we actually need. But how do we do that? Watch this sermon from Pastor Ken to give you a biblical understanding of fasting, and why followers of Jesus should practice this discipline.
