The grace of fasting is a gift from God that positions us to experience more of God’s power and affections. We fast to encounter God more and to change the world! Done in the right spirit, fasting increases our receptivity to God’s voice and His Word.
Jesus called His disciples to fast in a way that would position their hearts to encounter Him more as the Bridegroom God (Mt. 9:15). This book is designed to equip people to embrace the discipline, grace, and joy of fasting, that they might encounter more of Jesus as their heavenly Bridegroom.
Instant classic and a must read!
I first read this book back in 2007, and it not only gave me a better understanding of God purpose for fasting and practicals on how to do it, but it awakened my heart to see God as our beautiful bridegroom. Since 2007 I have given this book to a number of friends and have re read it many times. The Rewards Of Fasting, by Mike Bickle is a must read for any believer who is new to fasting or anyone who has a history in fasting and wants to renew his or her hunger to fast and go deeper in God.
