A Christian Journey

After Fasting

“Then after fasting and praying, they put their hands on them and sent them away.”   Acts 11:3

We could look at this verse today in several ways.  The chapter this verse belongs to chronicles Paul and Barnabas being sent out to preach the gospel.   The church assembly gathered together and after fasting and praying sent them on their way.

They also agreed with Paul, Barnabas and God by fasting and praying, as well as putting their hands on the two men.

Finally, this verse also speaks to me about action.  For those who have fasted these 40 days or at any time, that should be followed with action.  We fast to deny self and humble ourselves before the Lord.  We should also fast to be used by the Lord. 

After you fast, ask God what He would have you do for Him.
