Fasting and Prayer Brings Change by Patty Stoddard
As I sat at my laptop asking our Father what He would like me to say as a word of encouragement to Restoration, He gave me the following to share with you:
- He does not demand or command you to fast. It is not a religious formula with a bibbidi-bobbidi-boo and a swipe of a magic wand! But it is a tool that He has given us that will set you free and bring breakthrough in areas you have hidden, to squash the fear that hinders you from looking at the area, and to send the spirits of unbelief out of your life. It’s our choice!
- In Acts:13:2, it describes that while they (believers) were serving the Lord in fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit said……… during fasting we are open to hearing Him more clearly and seeing Him with new vision!
- Fasting and PRAYER (another key) brings change! Both work together in a miraculous way!
A diet will change the way you look,
Fasting changes the way you see!
My encouragement for you during this season is to make the choice to press in and a desire to uncover the areas that need change! Sit on His lap in prayer and let Him show you His goodness and love, casting out fear and unbelief! Fast the things that take you away from time with Him! Ask Him for a face to face encounter that will change your life that will bring about an excitement to move forward in purpose!
Abba, I’m yours! 2019 is a year of testimony!
