A Health and Wellness Fast | Marlin D. Harris
Is Fasting Connected to our Physical Health?
This year’s fast is focused on both our spiritual and physical health. We are calling this a Health and Wellness Fast. For many people, a corporate fast centered around health and wellness might seem a bit unusual. The question that you may be asking as you prepare to participate in this year’s fast is: Is there a Biblical connection between fasting and our physical health? Now, of course, we know that there are clear Biblical connections between eating and our physical health (Genesis 1:29; Leviticus 11 ff.), and many would argue that there are even Biblical connections between sleeping and our physical health (Psalm 3:5; Psalm 127:2), but what about fasting? Does the Bible actually connect fasting to our physical health?
