Spiritual, physical and health benefits of fasting.

The purpose and benefits of fasting for a believer child of God.

Fasting is a grace that significantly increases our ability to be receptive to the lord's voice and his word. Fasting provides unique spiritual benefits in the life of the believer.

Fasting requires self control and discipline as one denies the natural desires of the flesh. During fasting , the believer's focus is removed from the physical things of this world and intensely concentrated on God.

Fasting directs our hunger towards God. It clears the mind and body of worldly attentions and draws us close to God. This allows us to hear God more clearly. 

Fasting has also proven as a profound need for God's help and guidance through complete dependence upon him.

Seeking the face of God in fasting and prayers is essential as a christian . Be encouraged to observe this on a weekly basis. According to the  word of God in (Matthew 17vs 21) says and I quote, "But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." 

Seek the face of God concerning any issues of your life with the right spirit and God will answer in Jesus name amen.

These issues affects both the young and the older persons health in our generation. We then have to make sure that 51 Percent of the meal that we have is raw, so that we do not overburden that already burden immune system.

Eating real food everyday and leaving the junk and processed food for family day out .

What is the real food ?
Real food is food in its most natural state. Real food to me are whole foods of nature than a product made in the industry or food factory. Raw food that you cook yourself from scratch.
Examples are 100% whole-grains rice , whole grain , spaghetti ,whole grain pasta , quinoa ,Bulgur wheat, Barley ,Millet , spelt , whole rye , chia seeds, flax seeds ,Sorghum ,whole-wheat bread, yam, potatoes, sweet potatoes beans , chickpeas and other legumes.

Drinking plant based milk in cereal and tea is a better option as they are made from planets with no added  animal hormones.
