Fasting and Prayer

  As we fast, our focus must be right. The Lord Jesus Christ is our perfect example as to why we fast.   It is always to create intimacy with the Father for effective and powerful service for the Kingdom of     God. As we draw closer to Him, more of His love and power will be poured out in us not for display,   but to make an impact in the world.

The scriptures are clear regarding God's order of things. Many a time we may be tempted to focus on our needs and desires which are not only real but most times will have a sense of urgency with it. However, our walk wth our Lord and Saviour should reflect a life style that demonstrates that God and His word is even more real to us and for the believer, this must be our realistic perspective. No matter what the challenges are, our faith must be upon God's word who has promised us a way of escape or every temptation/trouble trial that we face. Matthew 6:33  clearly states, "Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you." What things will be added to us? The preceding verses tells us that God will take care of our necessities, food,clothing, & drink. The priority is set in the beginning of the verse - seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. In other words, you make your focus God's business and living right with God and man and then God will take care of your business. That's God's order for us! I can't tell you the amount of times I have decided to do shift my focus from the problem to doing what God says and finding out later that somehow, the problem was not as bad as it seemed or God has taken care of it along the way! He is not respector of persons, He is a respctor of faith. He will do it for you if you choose His way and not yours.

If we are going to take territory, we can only do it God's way. Faith, sacrifice, right confession, word intake, patience and love are some of the precursors necessary in our life. As we fast, let's be attentive to the promtings and leading of the Holy Spirit and He is the One Who will lead and guide us into God's truth. Let Him decide on how you will fast during these 21 days - Some may choose the Daniel Fast, other may not. Please be prayerful and focused on The Lord and believe Him for great things in our church and lives during this season that we are in. Meditate on the Word of God and let His promises flood your spirit. Release those faith words with declarations of conviction and confidence. God is able! During this season chains will be broken and yokes destroyed in Jesus Name. Remember, it's the demonstration of our faith in Him that pleases Him (Heb.11:6). As we employ faith in a balanced biblical way, He will demonstrate His goodness toward His people for God Who is love, loves us unconditionally.

Here are some tips to help you during this fast:

1.  Make sure your motive is right. It must be about our walk and relationship with God.

2.  Identify what neds changing. Be specific. Don't just say healing, but identify where in your body you need healing.

3.  Find a promise from God's word that addresses the problem and meditate on it every day.

4.  When you have sown that word in your spirit, speak it out (declare, confess call forth thiose thing that be not as though they do exist).

5.  Do not let delay change your confession. Because you can't see it, it does not mean it is not there. Remember, your answer is already prepared. God has already done it. It just needs to be manefested. Your faith is the force to make it happen. Be Patient. Biblical patience is more than sitting back and waiting for something to happen whilst doing nothing. One of the Greek words used is hupomone which is the ability to not succumb whilst under pressure. It is the ability to maintain continuity and not cave in while you are believing for the manefestation of the promise. It is a fruit which is put to work by the believer when it is needed in his/her life. Put this fruit to work during your fast and ensure your words are equal and in line with what God has said about you and the matter in His word.
