Day 7 of 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer

     My heart goes to Matthew 5:6 For those who hunger and thirst for righteousness shall be filled! Can you imagine your spiritual appetite beginning to shift until you have hunger pains for righteousness! A shift until your spiritual thirst can only be quenched by righteousness! What a Holy generation would rise in the earth! To be righteousness means to be in a right standing with God! We know that only happens by the blood of Jesus that washes our sins away and stains our soul with the bloodline of Heaven!! With that said prayer and fasting will cause you you be to focused on having an appetite for righteousness! When the flesh is cut away the loudest voice becomes your Spirit man crying out to be righteous in all you say and do!! Keep praying and fasting!! Your spiritual appetite is coming alive to the things of God like never before!!!!!! God bless!!

Day 6 of 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer

     It’s Saturday most of you are off work today. I charge you to start your morning with Jesus!! Being that you may be off today and your not occupied with work, the cravings of your hunger may get a little more intense! Don’t give in, don’t compromise, don’t attempt to convince yourselves that certain foods are ok as you think of ways to justify how it is not a meat, bread or dessert sugar!!:) You can do this!! “Let Jesus be Your Bread” John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. Allow your hunger and thirsts to be counteracted with time in God’s Word and empowerment by His presence. If your hungry for what you cannot eat, EAT THE WORD OF GOD!! If your thirsty for what you cannot drink “DRINK OF THE LIVING WATER!” Prayer and fasting will discipline you to say to no to your flesh and Yes to Jesus!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! God bless!!!

Day 4 of 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer

     Hasn’t it been awesome to have those moments where you desire to eat what you are fasting and as that hunger or craving arises you say NO!!??? Saying no creates a hunger for fasting!!!!:) Once you say no the consistent feeling of a cleansing process is not only taking place in your body as toxins are released but also spiritually as you allow your Spirit Man to gain the leadership role in your life that it was always supposed to have!! This morning I want to draw your attention to “THE POWER OF BREAKING OUT OF A WORLDLY ROUTINE!” Maybe before you you started this fast you had an eating routine. Get up in the morning eat your favorite breakfast of oatmeal, eggs toast, cereal, pancakes and bacon. But now Fasting breaks that routine and your having to reconsider what your body can have. You get to lunch time maybe normally you would have a sandwich or hamburger but now your having to break that routine, maybe for dinner chicken or steak and now your having to break that routine. For the last 3 days you have deprived your body of a normal routine and told it NO. Fasting pushes you to that place where as you deprive your natural senses of food and break your natural worldly routine, it becomes easier on the spiritual battlefield to make no provision for the flesh. When it is time to lead someone to Jesus and you have the feeling of embarrassment fasting has now conditioned your Spirit Man to lead and your flesh to get out of the way!! Maybe the time comes to pray for the sick and your flesh says no I don’t believe. Well fasting has already deprived the voice of your flesh long enough that the only voice you hear is the voice of your spirit man saying only believe!! These are only a few examples of the power of breaking your worldly routine!! The breaking of your worldly routine creates a consistent God honoring spiritual routine that destroys the works of the devil!! You cannot give your body everything it wants all year then expect to be able to tell it NO when the flesh desires to lead your spiritual life!!!!!! Fast and Pray CHURCH!!! Keep up the good work!! Fast and pray and don’t give into any devil in hell that says you can’t do this!! God bless!!

Day 3 of 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer

       Good morning it’s day 3 of PRAYER AND FASTING and Im so proud of the consistency of God’s people. I have not seen people hanging their faces and feeling sorry for themselves! I have heard reports of how excited you are to eliminate meat, bread and desserts!!! Get ready because a lot can happen in 3 days! Our Jesus died on the cross was buried in a tomb and walked out on the third day declaring himself to be the Son of God with power and literally changed the destiny mankind empowering us to pass from death to life in 3 days!! Lift your vision higher today! Lift your expectation level higher!! ONLY BELIEVE!! This morning I want to draw your attention to the reality that fasting is not just a natural discipline but it is a SPIRITUAL FEAST!! Do not make the focus of this fast about what you cannot eat in the natural but allow the Holy Spirit to empower your focus to be on the fact that as you deny your flesh you are preparing to eat of a spiritual feast that God has prepared for you! In Mathew 4:4 Jesus said man cannot live on bread alone but every Word that precedes out of the mouth of the Father! Spiritual bread is far greater than natural bread!!! Psalm 34:8 says taste and see that the Lord is good! Allow this fast to empower you to get hungry for His presence!! Get hungry for His joy and peace!! Get hungry His divine purpose and plans for your life! Get hungry to see a move of God in your city that is of unprecedented power!!! Fasting is about eating at a spiritual feast!! The lord has prepared spiritual food that is like manna from heaven!! Eat of it and you will realize that KING BELLY IS SO OVERRATED COMPARED TO EATING OF GLORY OF OUR JESUS!! Stay focused, stay committed and don’t let any devil in hell spoil your spiritual appetite as you fast and pray!! God bless you!!

Day 2 of 21 Days Of Fasting and Prayer

     Keep it up! By Day 2 your thinking I can do this!! Guess what you can! Don’t let any devil in hell tell you otherwise! Your appetite to eat is one of the strongest desires you have in your life! IT IS TIME TO DETHRONE THE POWER OF ITS INFLUENCE. Natural hunger can determine the course of your day if you let it and possibly the course of your life!!! It will determine your attitude and response to situations! Yesterday I noticed the new snickers bars say what you are like when your hungry and words like “complainer” “grumpy” “loopy” “confused” are printed on the bars!! I thought lord help us!!!!!!! 21 days of fasting will force your spirit,soul and body to submit to the fruit of the Spirit instead of the lying emotions that find its origin in your stomach and seek to dictate your behavior!! DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF KING BELLY!!!!!! I’m reminded this morning of Genesis 25 where Esau sold his birthright for a bowl of soup!!!!! His belly became his God until he ate himself out of the promises of God!! The unwillingness to control the natural appetite will become a breeding ground for the destruction of your spiritual appetite!!! FAST AND PRAY AND YOU WILL NOTICE THAT YOUR SPIRITUAL APPETITE WILL ECLIPSE YOUR NATURAL APPETITE!! ITS TIME TO FAST AND PRAY!!! So come join us tonight at NEW HOPE REVIVAL CHURCH AT 6:30pm as we pray and seek the face of God!! IT IS GOING TO BE POWERFUL!!!

Day 1 of 21 Days Of Fasting and Prayer

 If you have joined us get ready to see powerful things in your life! This morning I charge you to FAST AND PRAYER not just Fast. FASTING WITHOUT PRAYER IS ONLY A DIET! We are not looking to go on a 21 Day Diet! Our hearts desire is that we draw so close to God that our Spirit-Man becomes uncluttered with the things of this World. Mathew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Can you Imagine your hunger and thirst for God being stronger than your hunger and thirst for natural food!!?? Can you Imagine your spiritual appetite having a louder voice than your natural appetite? Can you imagine your spiritual senses being the driving force of your walk with God instead of your natural senses that buckle in fear when encountering the storms of life!! Welcoming to the life changing effects of fasting and prayer!! May you hunger and thirst for God like never before the next 21 days!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!! God bless!!
