"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
FASTING HAS MANY BENEFITS
Words of prophecy:
*____As My children
are obedient in the times of "fasting" that I call them to then they shall surely have the "continued" assurance deep within that their spirit-man is in dominion over their soul and body.
- governing or controlling influence; domination;
____....."But I say, walk by the spirit [from the position of the spirit being in a position of predominance over the soul and body], and you will not
carry out the desire of the flesh [senses]. For the flesh sets its desire against the spirit [inner man], and the spirit [inner man] against the flesh [senses]; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please"....
Galatians 5:16-17 NASB.
____...."Blow a trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly".... Joel 2:15 NASB
...."Be of sober [spirit,] be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in [your] faith".... 1 Peter 5:8-9 NASB
...."Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you".... James 4:7 The Amplified Translation
____Fasting [in obedience to the Holy Spirit] has many benefits [spirit, soul and body]
but one of the main ones is that it keeps one "alert" spiritually speaking - which is very, very important for each and every one of God's children, both in this most critical hour and beyond.
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who desire to live a "fasted life" before You. And we declare it DONE [on
an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
