On the last day, June 25th, Sunday, the period of the “Fast of Daniel” began, which runs until July 16th. In this text, you will find a step by step how to do the Fast of Daniel. For, to participate in this purpose, you need to spare yourself from things that distract you, to have more communion with God.
What is the Fast of Daniel?
It is a period for those who want to get closer to God. It is based on the purpose that Daniel made, which is described in the book of Daniel, chapter 10. For three weeks, Daniel fasted to draw closer to God and gain favor, wisdom and understanding and did not eat the things that were pleasant to him.
Why you have to do the Fast of Daniel?
Because it is a time when you will show God that He is the most important thing in your life, so you will spend 21 days fasting and denying pleasures and entertainment that take you away from Him.
What is the purpose?
The main purpose is to receive the Holy Spirit. That is, for 21 days, you will stay away from the pleasures of this world to seek Him. Above all, the Fast of Daniel determined by God is an opportunity for you to approach the Most High and start a new life with Him.
Step by step how to do the Daniel Fast:
First of all, for 21 days, you need to refrain from entertainment, music and secular news. Just as Daniel did not feed on delicacies and desirable foods, you will stop consuming this type of content, which is pleasant to your flesh. Connect with God and read the Bible more, look for Christian content that can feed your faith, during the period of the Fast of Daniel. Don't waste too much time on social media. If you don't use them for work, during the Fast of Daniel you should get away from them a little to have your full attention on receiving the Holy Spirit.
What to watch this season:
In addition, you can also consume movies, series and content that will help you get closer to God. Make a selection of films, documentaries, series and reflections to watch during the Fast, which have a message of faith and help you stay focused on your purpose. But be careful not to get caught up in entertainment. For, the aim of this purpose is that you develop your personal relationship with God, abandoning wrong attitudes and narrowing your communion with Him in a sincere conversation.
