My dear friend, welcome on board. This fast is about abstaining from doing the thing (s) God has put on your heart for 40 days. Some people are not going to watch TV, some people are shutting down their What’s App, some people are not eating a particular food item as we pray every single day seeking God’s face.
Organize time to pray in the morning and in the evening and make each prayer session at least 45 mins long. It is a time of sacrifice, let’s aim to spend much more time with God than we usually do. Let the Holy Spirit push you, it will not be in vain. If you can spend 1 hour to pray and worship in the morning, 1 hour in the evening or at night that will be awesome.
Time to appropriate God’s Word. 2018 is a Year of Victories!
My friend you shall not fear the devil or any principalities and powers because we live as God’s forgiven winners.
29 “He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.” Isaiah 40:29
You do not walk alone. You have God and his army with you! When you fast, you pray and you sing his praises, God fights the battle!
We mean something to God, for he so loved us “that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). We mean a great deal to God, we are his precious creation. He wants us to choose him because that is where we naturally belong.
Our father hasn’t abandoned us, he will never leave us, he says. Indeed he is offering us eternal life so that we can be with him forever!
You cannot keep to yourself, you have to know that you are surrounded by God’s love and an entire army belonging to him and serving him. God just needs to give the commands.
Your victories are prayers away. The solution is prayer, a lot of prayer. When you speak those biblical truths to God and you add fasting to it, something great and miraculous will happen. It will not fail. God will prove his word.
And one other key requirement for your victories I would like to share is Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
Whatever the enemy is doing or whatever is happening, the only way out and to victory is to expose all the works of darkness to the light of God. If you keep them to yourself, then nothing is being done about them. You begin to do something about them when you expose everything to God’s light.
You are not alone, reach out to God. Start praying or putting the music on to sing to him about him. He will make the way.
Receive power. Receive increased strength in the name of Jesus! (Isaiah 40:29)
What works of darkness would you like to expose to the light and bring to destruction through prayer? Write down what the Holy Spirit is revealing to you and use it to pray.
