Fasting and Confessing go Together
We do not present our supplication before you on the ground of our righteousness, but on the ground of your great mercies. (Daniel 9:18)
As we fast and pray we come face to face with what it means to be real with God. God is with us in our good times and our bad times, our times of holiness and our times of sin.
Many people in scriptures fasted for many different reasons. In the Old Testament when Daniel could see the future for his people and saw how bleak it was, he prayed and fasted and confessed his sin. Yes, he prayed and fasted and confessed his sin.
As we pray we move closer to God.
As we fast we move closer to God.
As we confess we move closer to God.
As we sit in the presence of God it is impossible not to open up about our good times and our bad times, our wins and our sins.
As we sincerely confess our sin, the barriers that stand in the way of God blessing us break down. As the scripture says, His mercy are guaranteed.
Don’t hold back on confessing to God in this season of seeking God.
Lord show me any areas of my life that are not pleasing to you. I turn away from my sins and turn to you, O God so I can fast and pray with a clean conscience and a pure heart. Im excited for what you will do
