Alignment with God’s direction Pt4

Giving You A Fresh Breath Of Grace Everyday

July 3

The power of fasting and prayer

Isaiah 58:6,8 KJV
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? [8] Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward.

Between you and the next phase of your life are certain steps you must take. One of such is indulging in heartfelt prayer coupled with fasting.
Prayer is a key that ignites or kickstart an encounter with God. When you get in touch with God in the right way, you are enabled to hear from God and get the needed direction.
In addition to prayer is fasting. Fasting is a way of humbling ourselves before God.
Fasting attracts direction quickly. When you seek God in humility, He shows you His perfect will.

Romans 12:1-2 KJV
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. [2] And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

There are a few examples in scripture of people, who sought God for direction by fasting and prayer, and got quick responses from God.

  1. When three stronger nations came against Israel, Jehoshaphat proclaimed a fast and God gave them help by a direction. 2Chron20.

Instead of going to the battle field with weapons of War, they went with instruments of music. As they worshipped, God thundered vengeance on their enemies.

  1. Ezra and the people fasted and prayed for God’s guidance.
    Ezra 8:21-23
  2. The disciples fasted and prayed, and God gave them direction for the next phase of the ministry.

Acts 13:1-2 KJV
Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. [2] As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.

Prayer and fasting is very important for receiving direction from God. Divine Direction makes life very easy for God’s people.
