Fasting - Healed Arm and Closeness to God

Fasting Testimony By Claudine - Age 51

“The personal benefits of the fast was amazing, not only spiritually, but my arm was miraculously healed”

I needed some answers from God, but there was a spiritual barrier that stood in my way. I had tried to fast before when faced with these types of circumstances, but something was lacking and my attempt at fasting failed. A friend called me about this new book she was reading about fasting. After reading the book, I became inspired and started another fast. My desire was to see some people around me that I cared about come to Christ. I followed the techniques to do with the physical aspects fasting written in the book Fasting to Freedom and read my bible at night.

The first few days were surprisingly easy, no headaches or weakness and I still continued to work. The remainder of the fast went extremely well. Only one day did I experience a bad reaction and this was because I cleaned the oven and breathed in some of the fumes causing me to feel sick. Luckily the feeling cleared up in a day.

Even though I was conscious of the good things that the fast was doing in my body, I maintained my spiritual focus and continuously prayed for revival in our church. By the grace of a God, a refreshing in our church began to occur; people were getting baptized every service. Many who had fallen from the faith returned. The spirit was moving. The church even decided to do a one day fast together. The pastor delivered an anointed sermon calling us to fast, pray and reaffirm our love for one another. This message stirred my soul to fast even longer!

The personal benefits of the fast were amazing, not only spiritually, but my arm was miraculously healed. For months I had been suffering with pain and during the fast, it completely disappeared. What joy to feel no more pain. The severe premenstrual cramps I had grown used to also receded. And to top it all off, I lost twenty pounds of excess weight. For a fifty-one-year-old grandmother to fast 17 days for the first time, I felt like I had a new lease on life.

For me fasting was a path to draw closer to God. I had to sacrifice some pleasures to find a closer intimacy with God... "Man shall not live by bread but by ever word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." I found my nourishment in God.
