Am I against fasting? Not at all! If fasting makes you pray well….please FAST! But it is NOT the fasting that brings the ANSWER! It is the knowledge of WHO you are praying to that brings answers! PRAYER DOES NOT NEED FASTING TO BE ANSWERED!
Listen carefully: God does not need your fasting to answer you!
‘Now to him that WORKETH is the reward not reckoned of GRACE, but of DEBT.’! (Romans 4:4)
Stop clamouring on your ability to fast in order to get God to answer you!
‘He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not WITH HIM also FREELY give us ALL things?’ (Romans 8:32)
Kindly read the above verse again! Did you compel God to give you JESUS? I really wished you understood that question.
Listen: the best GIFT God can ever give ANY man…is not money…not power….not fame….not success….not defense…..but JESUS!!! And you did not ‘fast’ before He gave you JESUS!Why then do you now think…you must ‘fast’ before Hewill prosper you in your endeavors?
‘He that spared not HIS OWN SON, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not WITH HIM also FREELY give us ALL things?’ (Romans 8:32)
Every believer must come to that point where we believe that God can FREELY give us ALL THINGS!
So what I’m I saying in a nutshell? Fasting is not a COMMANDMENT to believers. Fasting is not a REQUIREMENT for empowerment. Fasting is not a ‘BOOSTER’ to prayer.
‘..if ye be led of the Spirit (GRACE), ye are NOT UNDER LAW’! (Galatians 5:18)
If you must fast: Fast because you feel so! Fast because you want to enhance your spiritual concentration! But must you fast in order to have your prayers answered? The answer is a capital…NO!
I hope this is clear? Remain under GRACE!
