TOPIC: BREAKING FORTH IN FASTING FRIDAY DECEMBER 14 2018
SCRIPTURE: Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?… Isaiah 58:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Fasting comes with a force that breaks things forth and opens doors where necessary.
Fasting is a major key to breaking forth in life and destiny. The period of fasting is a period of breaking forth in many realms. Fasting comes with a force that breaks things forth and opens doors where necessary.
There are many dimensions of breaking forth brought about by fasting. Let me give you three of them:
1. Breaking Forth into Liberty
The period of fasting is a period for breaking of chains, ancestral and generational yokes and diverse bondages. It is a period of captivity turnaround (Isaiah 58:6).
2. Breaking Forth of Light
The fast period is a period of multi-dimensional explosions of light; it is the season where scriptures come alive (Isaiah 58:8).
3. Breaking Forth in Health
During the period of fast, diverse ailments and afflictions are healed (Isaiah 58:8).
Now, how do we fast productively?
1. Reach out to the needy as a lifestyle
Reaching out to the needy is a key to a productive fast. People who are hardened against the needy do not see much result from their fast (Isaiah 58:7).
2. Avoid careless talk
The period of fasting is the period of spiritual exercise and soberness. We must avoid vanity, loquacity and talkativeness (Isaiah 58:9).
3. Avoid wordless fast
We must study the scriptures while fasting. Light and revelations come out from the Word during fasting (John 1:1-5).
Beloved, make up your mind to fast often in order to deepen your relationship with God.
REMEMBER THIS: Fasting comes with a force that breaks things forth and open doors where necessary.
