Fasting is no firecracker. It’s a spiritual nuclear warhead. However, it takes time and training to learn how to utilize this warhead effectively, so be patient with yourself and God ... your "fasting nuclear warhead Instructor."

Here is an encapsulation of reasons to fast and some supportive scripture references:

1. Fasting helps subject our bodies to our spirit. (I Cor 9:27)
2. Fasting is disciplining the body, mind, and spirit. (Prov. 25:28)
3. Fasting is subordinating our flesh-desires to our spirit-desires. (Gal 5:17)
4. Fasting helps set the priorities in our lives. (Mt 6:33)
5. Fasting is longing after God. (Ps 63:1-2)

Why Should We Fast?

1. Honor God - (Mt 6:16-18, Luke 2:37, Acts 13:2, Mt 5:6)
2. Humble yourself; dethroning selfishness; pride - (2 Chron. 7:14-15)
3. Repentance - personal failures - (Psalm 51: Jer. 29:11-14, James 4:8-10)
4. Discernment - obtaining healing - (I Cor. 11:30, James 5:13-18, Isaiah 59:1-2)
4. Deliverance from sinful bondage - (Mt 17:21, Is 58:6-9: loose bands of wickedness)
5. Destroying strongholds of doubt and unbelief whereby increasing one's faith for more effective ministry - (Mark 9:29 KJV)
6. Increased confidence and effectiveness in our prayer-life - (2 Cor. 10:4)
7. Revelation - God’s vision and will - (Dan 9:3, 20-21, Dan 10:2-10, 12-13)
8. Revival - personal and corporate - (Acts 1:4, 14 / 2:16-21, Joel 2:12-18)
9. Though this should not be a reason to fast in and of itself -- rewards most likely will be stored up in heaven when we fast to honor God in some way, done in humility, for Christ-like reason/s - (Matt. 6:17-22)

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us what the Kingdom of
Heaven is like.”
He said to them, “It is like a mustard seed, the smallest of
all seeds. But when it falls on tilled soil, it produces a great
plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky.”
