When You Blow Your Fast

By: Andy McMahon

If you’ve ever partaken in any kind of fast, there’s a chance that you’ve also at one point or another blown it. Failed. Cheated. Made an excuse.  Whatever phrase you use, you know what I’m talking about. You set out to do one thing, and you ended up doing another.

It’s important to understand that blowing a fast isn’t a sin. There’s no ritual you have to do. There’s no guilt you have to feel. Do not fall into condemnation! (Romans 8:1)

We fast to draw closer to the Father; not so we fall into condemnation when we fail.  There’s only one thing to remember when you fail.  God loves you! (John 3:16)There’s only one thing to do when you fail:

Keep Going.

(Isaiah 41:10)
