How To Fast Pleasing God

fast

For this little paper I based myself solely on Isaiah 58

  1. Fasting shouldn’t be to quarrel and to argue (see verse 4)
  2. Fasting shouldn’t be to hit with a wicked fist (see verse 4)
  3. God expects true humility from inside, not outwards (see verse 5)
  4. Loose the bonds of wickedness(see verse 6)
  5. Let the oppressed go free(verse 6)
  6.  break every yoke( verse 6)
  7. Share your bread with the hungry; pour yourself out for the hungry  (verse 7 and 10)
  8. satisfy the desire of the afflicted( verse 10)
  9. Bring the homeless poor into your house;when you see the naked, to cover him,
     and not to hide yourself from your own flesh (verse 7)
  10. Turn back your foot from the Sabbath from doing your pleasure on my holy day,
    and call the Sabbath a delight(verse 13)

Is such the fast that I choose, a day for a person to humble himself?Is it to bow down his head like a reed, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him?Will you call this a fast, and a day acceptable to the Lord?

Isaiah 58:5

Wish you the best as you fast

God bless you all!!!!
