Humility in the presence of His power is what God demands of His children. Spiritual fasting is the means—the once-hidden, unexplored, misunderstood vehicle—by which we humble ourselves before God.
Micah 6:8 speaks of God’s desire for our humility. In Philippians 2:5-8, Paul instructs us to have the same attitude of Jesus, one of humility.
Prayer and fasting increase our humility because we discover a further dependence upon God.
