21 Day Devotion
Devotion is the solemn dedication to a special purpose. "Devotion" literally means set apart. Set apart these first 21 days of the year with a focus on spending time with God in prayer, meditating on scriptures and sacrifice.
The goal of fasting is to draw near to God. 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. Your personal fast should represent a level of challenge; but, it is very important to know your body, seek God and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.
Types of Fasts
Complete Fast - drink only water
Selective Fast - remove certain elements of diet e.g. meats, sweets + bread
Intermittent Fast - refrain from eating during certain times e.g. 12am - 5pm daily
Soul Fast - Give Up something besides food e.g. social media, television, etc.
