From the Pastor's Desk

“I humbled myself with fasting….” Ps. 35:13 NKJV.

“I was fasting and praying before the God of Heaven. Neh. 1:4 NKJV.

“When I wept and chastened my soul with fasting….” Ps. 69:10 NKJV.

“…Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes.” Dan 9:3 NKJV.

“So, Cornelius said, "four days ago I was fasting until this hour….” Acts 10:30NKJV.

“…when they had appointed elders in every church and prayed with fasting….” Acts 14:23 NKJV.

 

Fasting, or abstaining from food for a set period of time and only taking water, is a part of our devotion to God. 
 

Worship can be defined, as giving undivided attention to God and magnifying His greatness.  As part of our ‘worship life,’ we fast and pray and so set our souls and bodies and spirits on Him—because He is worthy and because He calls us into devotion to Him.
 

Jer. 30:21. In so doing, He is set to favour us with more of Himself—manifested in so many ways.  He desires our unfettered attention and deep down inside of us, we desire His attention and love.  This Divinely-made formula, part of our amazing relationship to the Almighty, is designed to make us so close and to provide an amazing partnership.  You want to be partnered with God.  You do your part and He will do His part.  More of Him in our lives, means more joy, more righteousness, more peace, more blessing and more manifested promises. “…he gives more grace.” 
 

Let us draw near to Him in these days of ‘fasting and focus,’ that Heaven might fill our lives to overflowing. Eph. 3:20.
