FASTING TODAY, POWER TOMORROW
Dr. Amos Fenwa
“Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”Matthew 6:16,
The kingdom of God is based on the principle of sowing and reaping; for every effect there is a cause. If you want things to
change there are things you should do. The weapons of prayer, giving and fasting are very potent. The seare dynamite to change any life situation. We need the power of God to operate better. As a citizen of the kingdom power is what we need. In the New Testament we don’t need an intermediary (priest) to stand between God and us, we have the power. 1 Cor 4:20 says “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.” We must receive power which is the evident of the Holy Spirit in us. Acts 1:8; Luke 4:1 talk about being filled and being led by the Holy Spirit.
Power is not literally making someone fall under anointing; it is the ability to change situation and this can be received through fasting. Mat 17:14- 21. One of the ways we can have breakthrough is through fasting and prayer. Matthew 10:1 reads “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.” Power terminates unclean spirits, sickness, failure and every other unpleasant experience. You need to combine prayer, fasting and giving to get maximum results. Giving can be inform of individual giving and cooperate giving.
WHEN DO WE NEED THE POWER OF GOD?
Ø W h e n y o u have done your best and the best is not good enough
Ø When you have toiled all night and caught nothing
Ø When your village people are after you
Ø When your mates have gone ahead of you The reason Devil is still troubling you is because you lack power.
You need to carry power to fight the battles of life. As you tarry before God this season, make it a priority to ask God for power. I decree that fresh power of the Holy Ghost is coming upon you in the mighty name of Jesus.
