Article by Donald S. Whitney on Fasting
Many people associate fasting only with dire and great troubles, and there are certainly examples of that in the Bible. But the Bible also says that fasting may be an act of sheer devotion to God.
In Luke 2 there is an unforgettable woman whose entire eighty-four years are flashed before us in just three quick verses. Her name is Anna. The summary of her life is found in Luke 2:37: “She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.” Although Anna’s story has its primary significance in the context of Joseph presenting the newborn Jesus at the Temple, how she lived from day to day is what concerns us here. Anna was married for only seven years before being widowed. Assuming she married as a young lady this Godly woman devoted at least half a century, night and day, to a worship of God characterized by “fasting and praying.”
Fasting can be an expression of finding your greatest pleasure and enjoyment in life from God. That’s the case when disciplining yourself to fast means that you love God more than food, that seeking Him is more important to you than eating. This honors God and is a means of worshiping Him as God. It means that your stomach isn’t your god as it is with some (see Philippians 3:19). Instead it is God’s servant, and fasting proves it because you’re willing to sublimate its desires to those of the Spirit….

Technology/Social Media Fast
Stay off of Instagram, Facebook, or whatever you use as a social media platform for 21 days. We often think these things keep us connected with others, and in some ways they do, but this can cause us to make posts seeking affirmation from others, take time away from our time with God, and can expose us to worldly images that can cause us to stray away from God.
In this time it may be hard to stay off these platforms and you may even notice a natural desire to pull out your phone and start swiping. In these moments turn to God in prayer, spend time in the word, and know that your value is from God and not from a social media platform. You might also notice that your life may become quieter because you are disconnecting from all the chaos that seems to be happening around the world. Use this time to listen to what God is saying to you.
After the 21 days is over remember all the ways you benefitted from not using social media. Implement these practices regularly so you don’t fall back into the place your were before.
