Secret Sauce - Webster - An element, quality, ability, or practice that makes something or someone successful or distinctive
“Fasting is denying yourself something temporal and ORDINARY in order to experience the One who is eternally extraordinary.”
Jentzen Franklin’s 21 day fasting devotional
he says,

“Fasting is not for the strong. Fasting is for the weak. Fasting is for the ordinary people who realize that they desperately need God in their life; that’s who fasting is for. I encourage you to begin this journey. If you’ve never fasted before, or if you are a veteran faster, and you’ve fasted many times, I’m excited about what God will do on this journey if you step up and say, “God, I want You, and I’m coming after You in prayer and fasting.”
Lisa Bevere - “A diet changes the way you look but fasting changes the way you see! Fasting is not as much about denying self as it is about indulging in God!”
Jentzen Franklin’s 21 day fasting devotional he says,

“I know of no other spiritual discipline that sharpens the heart and soul of a believer more than fasting. Fasting is sharpening the ax! If you’re not careful, you’ll be trying to cut down trees with an ax handle that doesn’t have an edge on the ax. Fasting is making the edge sharp so it can do a greater work."
