So we fasted and sought [help from] our God concerning this [matter], and He heard our plea” Ezra 8:23, Amplified.
“While they were serving the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul (Paul) for the work to which I have called them’.” Acts 13:2, Amplified.
Have you been uncertain on what God’s will is, or you ever been in a place in your life where you really needed direction or a breakthrough in your walk? You need His help in a great way.
A Pastor said once that if you ever want to drop an atomic bomb in your life–fast.
In those moments and seasons, it may be a time you need to fast. You will be surprised how powerful it is when you deny your flesh something, so your spirit man can receive something. Whether all day or until noon. Whether no food or no meats for a time. Ask the Lord what to do. As you fast and pray, God will hear your request in secret and reward you openly. Your light will break forth as the noon day. There is power when you push away that plate so that you can get closer to the Father. There’s power in a man’s secret work of fasting.
Prayer: Father, for some reason I have a wrestling on the inside on what to do. I need to know Your will. Are you leading me to fast? Help me set myself to pray and fast so I can deeply hear and draw closer to You. Help this man push away the plate by Your grace. As I fast, I believe You will answer and openly reward me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
