When it comes to fasting, it can be thought of as something between Ash Wednesday & Easter where you gave up a piece of chocolate, a cartoon, or something like that. God has a much greater purpose in mind for fasting both medically & spiritually speaking. Along with the immense medical benefits to fasting; there are many spiritual benefits to fasting as well. The Bible is filled with times where people fasted to set their focus on God’s presence, for covering and leading, for healing from grief, remaining faithful not to sin, and on making the right decisions to name a few. Joined by Dr. Fred Bisci and Pastor Ray Parascando, session two enables you to know the importance of fasting and how to fast effectively.
Discovering God’s Process of Renewal For Your Body
God has designed the human body to be healthy, self-healing, and self-regulating; yet our bodies can get bogged down, run down, and clogged up. While there are many quick fix claims out there where you can take a pill, drink a shake, order special meals, or anything else; at the end of the day the quicker the fix, the quicker the fix fails.
God’s desire for your life is that you would have a lasting and legitimate change, and that you would be the healthiest version of who God created you to be. More than being in a cycle of taking quick fix after quick fix, God has a plan for your physical and spiritual health that you can adopt as a lifestyle to renew your health.
It’s not too late to adopt a healthy lifestyle and allow God’s healing and regeneration process to renew your health so that you can fulfill the purpose and plan that God has for your life from His Kingdom work for you, your job, your family, and your overall well-being.
With over 50 years of experience in health and nutrition, Dr. Fred Bisci shares his knowledge of how you can discover your body’s full potential in a healthy journey; and Pastor Ray Parascando shares from God’s Word in how you can discover God’s process of renewal for your body in this Small Group Series, Health Renewal.
