One of the things that the Father has released to us at this time is fasting; being able to turn away flesh to allow for spiritual growth. One of the key components to all of this is perception. Perception is the way you view/your internal output regarding a specific topic. My perception of fasting is your spiritual insight on why you should turn away from fleshly desires for spiritual gain.
With the Father providing revelation in this time, it is important that we listen to that “still, small voice.” That is not probable if we have many worldy things going on around us. All of it is a distraction, especially in this season when the Father really wants you to hone in and listen. How can we grow spiritually if our outlook towards fasting is just turning this off, or not eating that? Although, those are good things to do for peace, what are you gaining from Holy Spirit during this time? Wisdom is a valuable piece to this component of Perception. Wisdom creates the spiritual awareness needed for a carnal perception to change into a spiritual one. It is amazing to see l how many times in the bible that many had spiritual breakthroughs after Father took them through the wilderness. There is no doubt that this caused them to do away with carnality, and appreciate the Spiritual bettering of themselves!
I pray that something that I have said has blessed you and that we can begin to dig deeper into God’s word while putting away all carnality!
“Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.
