THE IMPACT OF FASTING
Thursday, 06 October 2016

Fasting is an act of willing abstinence or reduction from certain or all foods, drinks, or both, for a period of time. It is a spiritual exercise that subdues the flesh and fuels spiritual audacity. It is the practical manifestation of desperation; a desire on fire and a confirmation of self-insufficiency. Fasting loses its meaning when it is not accompanied by prayer and the study of God’s Word.

Now, let us look at one of the products of fasting: Supernatural strength.

The act of fasting is an impartation of strength. In Isaiah 40:31, the Bible says, ‘But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles…’

As the eagles renew their strength by waiting once in a year on top of a rock, so does a person build his spiritual ‘muscle’ by waiting on the Lord in the period of fasting and prayer.

Fasting strengthens a person for the battles of life. It positions a person in a place where he can boldly confront every witch or wizard. Fasting can turn a weak Christian into a strong Christian. It terminates struggles in prayer, studying the Bible, and worship.

Remember this: Fasting strengthens a person for life’s battle.

ASSIGNMENT (S):
1. Engage in a fast at least once a week; always embark on periodic fasts.
2. Pray fervently and study the Word of God whenever you engage in a fast.
