In Daniel 10 in the Bible, we see that, for 21 days, Daniel decided to fast in order to find favour, wisdom, and understanding from God.
Nowadays, amongst the list of things that get in the way of our relationship with God, distractions are ever present, and they come in all forms of entertainment and secular information which constantly bombards us.
The Lord Jesus said: “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Matthew 13:9). The purpose of the Fast of Daniel is exactly this – to open our ears to the voice of God.
We live in a reality where we are constantly bombarded by various voices, at times, simultaneously. The problem is that most of these words and opinions don’t meet our needs nor lead us in the right way; otherwise, everyone’s life, including yours, would be completely different, and much happier.
That is why it is important to listen to the Voice that really matters. However, this becomes more and more difficult, since the other voices will never be silent unless we make them silent ourselves.
This is the purpose of the Fast of Daniel. If you commit yourself to this challenge, you will be able to hear the Voice of God and receive instructions from Him so that you will not only be able to solve your problems but also completely change your life.
For this to happen, it is advised that you abstain from secular information for 21 days. This includes news, music, movies, or any other form of entertainment that could divert your thoughts and your focus from your goal of listening to God. After all, to achieve something so important and decisive like this, you cannot afford to have any distractions.
