Topic: Fasting- Key To Lasting Impact
SCRIPTURE: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. – Isaiah 40:31
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To have a lasting result, you must have a fasting schedule; anyone who cannot fast, cannot last.
Fasting connotes abstention from food or some types of food.
Fasting puts the flesh under control to increase spiritual antenna and sensitivity.
To have a lasting result, you must have a fasting schedule; anyone who cannot fast, cannot last. The lack of fasting is a reason for the abortion of some great destinies. The inefficiency of fasting equals deficiency of potentials.
The truth is, those who feast while others fast may fall while others fly. Those who are feasting and playing while others are fasting and praying cannot have impact that can stand the test of time.
You have not done anything about your destiny until you have done something about your fasting. Do not fast because of a challenge, but fast in order to maintain spiritual fire and intensity.
To fast only when there is a problem is an emergency management approach; it is anti-spirituality. It is habitual fasting that makes a person to be equal to any spiritual emergency any day and anytime.
Beloved, whatever fights your ability to fast, fights your destiny. So, you must fight it brutally if you must make a lasting impact on earth.
Remember this: To have a lasting result, you must have a fasting schedule; anyone who cannot fast, cannot last.
1. Consciously resist every resistance to your fasting life
2. Determine to engage yourself in a periodic fasts- it could be once or twice a week, depending on your ability.
PRAYER: LORD, I take authority over any weakness of the flesh that may be resisting my fasting schedule. I receive the grace O LORD to live a life of fasting, in Jesus’ Name.
