Topic: The Impact Of Fasting [Seeds Of Destiny 8 November 2019 Devotional]
To have a lasting result, you must have a fasting schedule; anyone who cannot fast, cannot last.
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 is the willing and voluntary abstinence from or reduction in some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time.
Fasting as a spiritual act is targeted at putting the flesh under control in order to increase spiritual sensitivity and intensity. 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 great destinies. Inefficiency in fasting results in the deficiency of potentials and gifting.
The truth is, those who feast while others fast may fall while others fly. And those who are feasting and playing while others are fasting and praying cannot have their impacts stand the test of time.
You have not done anything about your destiny until you have done something about your fasting life. Do not only fast because of a challenge; 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, and 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.
- Consciously resist every resistance to your fasting life.
- Determine to engage yourself in a periodic “consecrational” fast – it could be once a week or twice a week depending on your ability.
PRAYER: Lord, I take authority over any unbridled appetite and craving for food that has hampered my fasting life. I receive the grace to live a fasted life Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
