Fasting is simply abstaining from something to center on God. The goal of this 21 day journey is to open more of ourselves to God by disengaging from things that so often distract us. Ultimately, this fast is about experiencing more full life in Jesus!
Your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.
This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.
This fast involves abstaining from eating any type of food during set times during the day. For example, someone may fast from breakfast, lunch or dinner.
This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
