When you fast, make sure it's in secret, so God can reward you openly.

"Faye's daily Words Of Encouragement # 304 Today's word Is: Fasting"

Definition of the word Fasting: Means to abstain for an action of eating,drinking,or etc. I means self control, self denial, and self restraint.

Psalms chapter 35 -13 : But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing were sackcoth: I humble my soul with fasting ; any my prayers retun into my own bosom.

Psalms chapter 109 - 24 : My knees are weak through fasting, and my flesh faileth of fatness.

Matthews chapter 6 - 16 : when we fast, be not like the hypercrites, of a sad countenance: for they disguise their faces ,that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you they have their reward.

Matthews chapter 6 17 : But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thy head and was thy face.

Matthews chapter 6-18 : That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy father which is in secret, shall he reward them openly.

1 Corinthians chapter 7 -5 :Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time , that ye may give yourself to fasting and prayer; and come together again that Satan tempt you not for your incontinecy.

2 Corinthians chapter 11 - 27 : In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings ofter, in cold and nakedness.

Today's daily Words of encouragement word is Fasting: Which means to abstain from different actions, to clean out our minds and bodies, and become one with God. Fasting is an action that shouldn't be taking lightly. The actions of fasting is just like giving Alms,you do it in secret; we don't talk about it or put on a sad face to get sympathy from men, because if we do this , the bible say we already have our reward of men.

when we fast and and show actions of fasting to men, with a sad face, then we have cancelled out the goodness and the reward of God. Just as giving Alms in secret, fasting should also be done in secret, so God can reward you openly. With fasting , we should always, put on a happy face, by giving God the glory.
