The Point:

You were made to crave so much more than the world has to offer. Fasting sharpens and strengthens your godly affections as you long to be satisfied in God alone.


"[Fasting] reveals the measure of food’s mastery over us — or television or computers or whatever we submit to again and again to conceal the weakness of our hunger for God. And she remedies by intensifying the earnestness of our prayer and saying with our whole body what prayer says with the heart: I long to be satisfied in God alone!" - John Piper, When I Don’t Desire God
