Day 12 of 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer

Wow over half way there! We have over 25 people that I know of that are doing the 21 days of fasting and praying in our church this year!! And more that have joined us on Facebook!! God you are so good! I want to draw your attention to 2 Chronicles 20! I believe that Fasting breaks off a garment of heaviness and empowers you to wear the garment of Praise!! Heaviness is that thing that comes when you feel down, depressed, fearful or spiritually dehydrated!! It’s interesting that when we feel that way the first thing many of us want to do is EAT FOOD!!! When we get done eating we feel just as heavy in the natural as we do in the spirit. What a tactic of the enemy to make you feel heavy spiritually and physically and unable to fight on the spiritual battlefield!! In 2 Chronicles 20, King Jehoshaphat is told that a multitude was coming against him, that this army was coming to defeat them. And heaviness came on him, his heart was filled with fear. Has that ever happen to you where you get some bad news about something and you get spiritually heavy!!!!???? I love King Jehoshaphat’s response! The Bible says in verse 2 that he called a FAST THROUGHOUT ALL OF JUDAH!!!!! They fasted and prayed and began to praise God!!! Then the SPIRIT OF THE LORD SHOWED UP!!! God told them where the enemy would be and that this battle is not theirs this BATTLE BELONGED TO THE LORD!!!!!! God said position yourself for the salvation of the Lord!!!! As they FASTED, PRAYED AND PRAISED GOD, the lord set an ambush against the enemy! They exchanged their garments of heaviness for a garment of praise, but FASTING AND PRAYER EMPOWERED THEM TO DO THAT!!!!!!! Remember as you fast and pray your physical and spiritual heaviness will be broken and a garment praise will be placed on your Spirit man to wage war against the enemy! THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS IT BELONGS TO THE LORD!! GOD BLESS!!!
