Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
Want to see the impossible, the unexplainable, the supernatural?
Then one must be willing to fast. In situations where nations experienced powerful demonstrations of revival and breakthroughs, fasting was a major key.
There are varied kinds of fasting but the one that I am referring to today is the abstaining from food whilst seeking God for a desperate need. There are many life-changing experiences that can be made manifest from fasting, such as:
¤ Unlocking deeper levels of intimacy with God.
¤ Getting healing from life-altering diseases and conditions.
¤ For deliverance and breakthroughs for one’s self or others.
¤ Seeking God for wisdom and direction for important situations.
¤ To see revival and transformation in a nation, community, church, family etc.
¤ Breaking down strongholds of addictions, curses and oppression.
¤ Gaining grace over lusts and pride.
¤ Increasing one’s capacity for the power of God, that is, the anointing.
¤ Getting answers to anything deemed impossible or incurable.
Fasting and Prayer is the strongest of all weapons given to man. There is no other weapon that is as powerful – for he who fasts, moves the Hand and Heart of Almighty God.
Isaiah 58 is a good place for each person to start reading should they have a desire to fast, learn how to fast or to find out the benefits of fasting. One thing I know is this, the body primarily needs food to survive. When you say to God that I am willing to suffer my core need of the flesh for a need in the spirit; He becomes all the more attentive and focused to our every plea.
