I’ve been reading a book called “Fasting” by Jentezen Franklin and he mentioned that fasting, praying and giving are our duties as believers. Sometimes we lose sight concerning the aspect of fasting and praying and just go on about our everyday lives not thinking about the importance of the two. What I’ve learned is that it is so easy to give some money, encouragement or even our time, but when it comes to turning down our plates it is almost like we go into a panic the moment fasting is mentioned. The reason is because there is so much power in fasting and praying that the enemy will use everything to deter you from using the power to cast him out. Can I also say that everything isn’t the enemy and that we (at times) are our own enemy? Sometimes we fear or put off fasting because we don’t know what to expect as fasting makes us go deeper, and most of the time going deeper can bring up some very uncomfortable things that we don’t want to face. Although it may be uncomfortable it is the key to unlocking the happiness and bliss that we all deserve and that enemy tries to hold captive. Let me encourage you to turn that plate down and start somewhere on your fasting journey, even if you start with a 12 or 24 hour fast and work your way up, it will be an experience like never before. God is wanting us to go deeper in Him and given the times we are in today, this is exactly what the doctor ordered. Please consider what I’ve shared and get your breakthrough. I hope this blessed you today!
