The Fast that Pleases God

Isaiah 58:5Is a fast such as this what I have chosen, a day for a man to humble himself [with sorrow in his soul]? Is it only to bow down his head like a reed And to make sackcloth and ashes as a bed [pretending to have a repentant heart]? Do you call this a fast and a day pleasing to the Lord? ‘

As born-again believers, fasting is essential to our spiritual lives. Fasting is beneficial; rather, it is a full or partial fast; the key is setting your heart/face to seek God. There are certain types of fasts, but as we seek God, we want to embark on a fast that is pleasing to the Lord. As stated in the above scripture, there is such A fast that is pleasing to the Lord. God has given us his key to effective fasting; let us read Isaiah 58 to understand the proper fast in which the Lord delights.

What is fasting?Fasting is the discipline or practice of abstaining from or eating very little food for biblical reasons. The KJV translates Strong’s H6684 in the following manner: root; to cover over (the mouth) In short, fasting is the act of refraining from or not eating very little food; during A fast, the goal is to place A cover over the mouth.

Always approach fasting with humility. Fasting must be genuine and not religious or hypocritical. God wants us to do all things with the correct motives, including fasting. During your fast, it should be A time of examining your heart and repenting.

Types of fast: As we notice, fasting is to abstain from food; several people may fast from: TV, the internet, social media, etc. to abstain from these things aren’t bad. However, to fast biblically means to abstain from food.

  • Full Fasts: Complete fast with or without drinks and completely no food.
  • Partial Fasts: Abstaining from food for A certain amount of time. A partial fast can include some food such as vegetables and can be done for long lengths.

Why should we fast? Fasting draws us near to God. God is not interested in our outward show; instead, he looks at our hearts. When we draw nigh to God, he will draw near to us James 4:8 There are several biblical reasons for fasting, some reasons are in Isaiah 58:

To undo the bonds of wickedness: God wants to break/lose the band (fetter) of wickedness & iniquity in our lives. Are you or someone you know bound by sin? Scripture tells us that when we are bound by sin, we are servants and slaves to sin John 8:34. Romans 6:16 rather its pornography, masturbation, alcoholism, adultery, lying, fornication, or any besetting sin, GOD wants to set you free. You may need to incorporate fasting with your prayers for your complete breakthrough and revival.

To undo the heavy burdens: God wants to remove and violently shake/tear off the heavy yokes/bands of burdens weighing us down. A burden is something that is carried. Such as A load. A burden can be: False responsibilities; burdens are typically something oppressive and worrisome A heavy burden of guilt, A financial burden, or simply us trying to bear the load for someone. Let us read what Jesus says about these burdens:

  • Matthew 11:29-30 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

To let the oppressed go free and break apart every enslaving yoke: Fasting will set those free who are oppressed, bruised, broken, and discouraged in their spirits. The spirit of oppression is like that of A broken vessel; it weighs you down in your body and mind. If you’re feeling: sad, anxiety, moodiness, hopelessness, or any suicidal tendencies, you’re dealing with A spirit of oppression (depression). Scripture tells us to put on the garment of praise in exchange for this spirit. As you begin to praise the Lord, oppression will begin to lift. When you add fasting and prayer, you will have the anointing to destroy every yoke of oppression.

Results of A Godly fast: Isaiah 58:8-12

  • Fasting can cause your light to spring forth. The Holy Spirit provides illumination; we need this illumination to make all things clear. When the light of Christ comes forth, darkness must flee.
  • Fasting brings good health and wholeness quickly; it can break the power of sickness and infirmity.
  • Our righteousness will go before us, leading us to peace and prosperity.
  • Fasting releases God’s Glory and protection; the Glory of the Lord will be our rereward. God’s Glory will cover us as A defense.
  • Fasting can result in answered prayer when we call; the Lord will answer, if we cry, he will say, “hear I am.” Once we take away from our midst, the yoke of oppression we place on others, the finger (accusing others), and the tongue that speaks evil. Examine your heart!
  • When we offer ourselves to assist the hungry (spiritually and physically) and satisfy the afflicted (distressed, tormented), our light will rise in the darkness. Our gloom will become like the noonday. When we become selfless servants in God’s kingdom, all of these things will be added unto us because we are seeking his kingdom first.

Isaiah 58:11-12 And the Lord will continually guide you, And satisfy your soul in scorched and dry places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. And your people will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up and restore the age-old foundations [of buildings that have been laid waste]; You will be called Repairer of the Breach, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. ‘

There are many benefits and breakthroughs when we incorporate fasting with our prayers. Prayer and fasting help us to clear the obstacles to our faith and faith-filled actions. It has been said that fasting is “super-charged prayer.” The flesh has primary needs or desires for food. Our need for food is dominant. Quoted from book

These natural desires are valid but can quickly become too intense (A snare, lust, inordinate, or gluttony), dominating us. Fasting is A way to assert control over the flesh where it counts. Fasting, coupled with prayer, is one of the most powerful weapons to your breakthrough. To overcome those besetting sins or draw near God, I encourage you to fast and pray for breakthrough.

I’ve written A sample prayer for when you begin your fast. God is waiting to hear from us. Seek God while there is still time and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you into the fast that pleases GOD.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for your chosen fast according to your word in ISA 58. Father, I enter into this fast seeking your Divine intervention seeking you wholeheartedly to know your will for my life. I am praying and fasting this day for (whatever you’re fasting for) Father; I pray that you will give me A broken heart over my sins. Remove every desire to do my own will or my pleasures during this time of fasting. I ask that you give me A heart of fasting, not one that is fasting to be seen of men but YOU.

I come before you to humble myself with sorrow in my soul. Father, I pray that every band of wickedness will be loosed, all heavy burdens will be undone, and that you break every yoke in my life in Jesus’s name. Father set people Free who are oppressed by heavy burdens and those who are troubled mentally or physically (anxiety).

Lord, fill me with your unselfish love, teach me how to love you with my whole heart, and love others unselfishly. Help me seek the best for others during this time of fasting lead me to those who cannot help themselves both physically and spiritually. Lord, help me be available to my own family’s needs and help the poor and needy as led by your Spirit. Father, I seal these prayers in the blood of Jesus, believing that these words will not return void according to your word. Thank you, father, in advance for your answered prayers, and I believe it is done in Jesus’s name AMEN!

Make your petition and request known to God. What are you seeking and believing God for according to his word/will? 2nd Chronicles 7:14

God Bless!

Turn up The Light (Part I)

  • John 8:12 Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
  • Luke 2:32 A Light for revelation to the Gentiles [to disclose what was previously unknown], And [to bring] the praise and honor and glory of Your people Israel.”

These scriptures are very timely for the time and season we are currently in, we understand that Jesus is The Light. He shines amid great darkness. “The Light” means to shine or make manifest G5457. “The Darkness” G4653 means something dim (shadowy, faint) or obscure (dark, hidden, hazy). Darkness is also the current world in which we live, and this world is immersed in sin and everything that is opposed to biblical truth. Here’s A few facts about “The Darkness”:

  • Darkness cannot appropriate (overtake, usurp) the Light
  • Darkness cannot absorb (occupy, understand) the Light
  • Darkness is UN-receptive (not responsive & UN-receivable) to the Light.

We (Born Again Christians) are to be A light during great darkness. In these end-times, darkness (misery, destruction, ignorance, wickedness) shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people. The Lord (Jehovah) will arise upon his saints, and his glory shall be seen (manifest) upon us ISA 60:2. GOD is calling us to Turn Up The Light! Light will always expose darkness; we should not agree with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reprove (rebuke, expose) darkness.

Now is the time to turn from the kingdom of darkness to the marvelous and true Light of Christ.Turn up the Light of Christ in your life via fasting, prayer, reading the bible daily, and cultivating A relationship with our heavenly father. He is waiting to hear from you (and I). As we see the gross darkness covering the people, we should run to the only one who can save us from destruction, JESUS Christ!

ISA 42:6 “I am the Lord, I have called You in righteousness,I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You,And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,As a light to the nations,

John 12:46 I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.

John 3:19-21 AMP ‘This is the judgment [that is, the cause for indictment, the test by which people are judged, the basis for the sentence]: the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.

For every wrongdoer hates the Light, and does not come to the Light [but shrinks from it] for fear that his [sinful, worthless] activities will be exposed and condemned. But whoever practices truth [and does what is right—morally, ethically, spiritually] comes to the Light, so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are—accomplished in God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence on Him].

“Stay Tuned As we study further on this topic! In the meantime, saints and non-saints alike, it’s time to turn up the Light!

Tune in to the Study: Turn Up The Light

God Bless,

Spiritual & Physical House Cleaning

It’s springtime, and many are planning to clean their homes, offices, and personal spaces. De-cluttering & organization is at the top of their lists. Although cleaning, organizing, de-cluttering, is A good thing very few people give A second thought about cleaning their spiritual house.

Our bodies are considered A temple, and we should treat it as such. We must guard what we allow in because the devil plan is to steal, kill, defile and ultimately destroy us.

John 10:10 NKJV
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.

Sin opens the door for demonic spirits to enter our lives. Its time we close every doorway we’ve opened to the enemy. In Matthew 12:43-45 and Luke11:24-26 scripture tells us that when an evil “unclean spirit” is gone out of our bodies [if it should try and come back] it should never find the house empty, swept, and garnished. The above scripture is referring to our (body) and also our home.

Empty, Swept and garnished refers to our spiritual lives we must continually remain in Gods presence. Prayer, Reading Gods Word, Fasting, Praise & Worship are all necessary for our spiritual growth. We must keep our mind on the Lord.

We also can have spiritual freedom by removing objects from our home that brings curses & sin into our lives. There are unclean cursed objects in homes that we need to rid out of our lives and house. These cursed objects can open A doorway for evil spirits to enter into our home. We must be vigilant and use discernment with the items we allow into our home.

As mentioned above, we need to rely on the Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us in all things. He is our teacher, comforter & the Spirit of Truth he will give us wisdom in all things.

Deuteronomy 7:26: Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing(banned, a doomed object, dedicated thing) like it: but thou shall utterly detest it(loathe it), and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing

As we can see from the scripture above, God considers the accursed objects an abomination. A cursed object is something that is banned and dedicated to a false god. We can now understand why we are commanded to destroy these items and abhor them quickly. God wants to see his people set free, and the devil wants to keep us bound. Be vigilant sisters & brothers.

Pray over everything you purchase for your home, anoint all items with oil. I also recommend anointing the food you are buying from your local market place. Satan is crafty he is always on the prowl seeking whom he may devour. Wisdom, discernment and living A Holy separated life is essential. Please CLOSE THE DOOR TO SIN, and the EVIL OBJECTS it doesn’t matter how unique the item is if the Holy Spirit shows you an accursed object in your home we must obey and utterly destroy it.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (1 Peter 5:8)

I’ve provided A link with A list of accursed objects that we may have ignorantly allowed into our home. I will name a few below but, for a more detailed list, please click the URL below. As always, there is a prayer to follow.

  • Cursed Objects List (This includes items I have seen personally and owned)
  • Crystal Ball
  • African Masks, statues and figurines

Our Authority with the Blood of Jesus (Prayer)

the-blood-of-jesus-01-e1320017017245

 

“Ephesians 1:7: Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil. • Ephesians 1:7: Through the blood of Jesus, all my sins are forgiven. • 1 John 1:7: The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses me continually from all sin. • Romans 5:9: Through the blood of Jesus, I am justified, made righteous, just-as-if-I’d never sinned. • Hebrews 13:12: Through the blood of Jesus, I am sanctified, made holy, set apart to God. • 1 Corinthians 6:19–20: My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, sanctified by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, Satan has no place in me, no power over me, through the blood of Jesus. If you really believe those words, the next thing to do is to praise the Lord for it. Here is a word of praise that you might use: Thank You, God, for the precious blood of Jesus. Thank You for the redemptive blood of Christ. Thank You for the justifying, sanctifying, precious blood of the Lamb of God. Blessed be the name of the Lord. I praise You,”

 

Actual Prayer without scripture. This is us testifying on behalf of what the blood of Jesus does for us. Rev 12:10 says we overcome satan by the blood of JESUS and the word of our testimony.

 

“Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil. Through the blood of Jesus, all my sins are forgiven. The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses me continually from all sin. Through the blood of Jesus, I am justified, made righteous, just-as-if-I’d never sinned. Through the blood of Jesus, I am sanctified, made holy, set apart to God. My body is a temple for the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, sanctified by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, Satan has no place in me, no power over me, through the blood of Jesus. I renounce him, loose myself from him and command him to leave me in the name of Jesus. Amen.

 

“Jesus, for You paid the price of my redemption. You shed Your precious blood on the cross. You are the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. And now, Lord, I have taken the blood from the basin and transferred it to my own personal needs by the hyssop of my testimony. Amen.”
