DAY 9 OF 21
Theme of the Day: The fast that God Chooses
isaiah 58:6 NLT
Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
Fasting is one of the most powerful spiritual disciplines of all the Christian disciplines. Indeed, our Lord Jesus addressing the subject in Matthew used the words ‘when you fast’ certainly suggesting an expectation that we should all practice it. God outlines the fast He chooses in Isaiah 58:6 and reveals the significant impact of fasting. We are seeing the hand of God move mightily in our Church and this period of fasting enables us to increase our faith to believe for even greater things.
We join with the Christian communities in this country and all over the world, not to change God, but for us to meet the conditions for a greater manifestation of His presence in our lives and our church. As we agree together during this time much will be accomplished and we can legitimately raise our expectation for God to do great things in our midst.
Remember fasting is not just about not eating you need to be praying, reading the bible and meditating on God’s word.
1. Father cause us to humble ourselves during this time as we seek your face and respond by healing us and our land.– 2 Chronicles 7:14
2. Father, release to us the spiritual authority that comes by our obedience to pray and fast. Let us see your will done here on earth like never before. (Mark 9:29)
