Day 4

Day Four:  Delighting in Fasting
“Then you will take pleasure in the Lord,
And I will make you ride on the high places of the earth…” Isaiah 58:14 AMP
“Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalms 37:4
I doubt may Christians would associate the word “delight” with fasting.
But the delight does not come in the fasting.  The delight comes in pleasing God.
Although we do not have to fast to please God, He acknowledges our fast as a means of pursuing Him.
Let’s face it.  We do not fast to please ourselves.  And we shouldn’t fast to please our church or anyone else.
We should fast because we wish to put God first and this pleases Him.
It is a way of taking pleasure and delighting in God.
And look what happens when God becomes our delight…
  • We will ride on the high places of the earth
  • We get the desires that are so deep in our heart we may not have even spoken them.
There are multiple ways other than fasting to make serving God our pleasure and delight.
Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you how you can take pleasure in God and delight in Him in your daily life.
