Alive & Active to Fasting

There are things that God desires to happen in our lives that won’t happen unless we pray and fast. We’ll pray when we have too; but will we deny ourselves when we need too? Fasting breaks strongholds, liberates people, and moves us into a realm of realizing God’s power in our lives. There are things that God wills for us to do that we will not have the power to bring about unless we have spent time with Him. Fasting is abstaining from food (or other things) in order to give ourselves to prayer and fellowship with the Lord. We can literally eat ourselves out of God’s will. There are some blessings from God we will never receive unless we dethrone our King Stomach. Fasting is more than just missing a meal. Its power shows up because we commit to spend additional time in God’s presence.
