HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
God is giving the privilege to fast possibly daily or frequently and The Mystical Order Ministries has been fasting annually for 21 days culminating on Easter Sunday. The Church calls us to imitate Jesus by fasting during set times. As the Church has traditionally practised, we should our meals unless the Lord has given us another way to fast. During the rest of the year, the Lord may call you to fast for a given period. You may be called to a total fast in which you eat nothing or to a partial fast in which you limit your intake of food.
Seek the Lord’s will concerning what time and what way you are to fast each time you are given instructions. Finally, the Lord calls us to fast daily or at least frequently while we seek the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We should fast in a way that we are conscious of it.
Possibly the Lord will tell you to fast for a special intention. Because fasting can make an average person more powerful spiritually than religious leaders, political figures, and billionaires are, Satan will make fasting as difficult as possible. However, the Lord’s grace will give you victory. Fasting can break you free from the lethargy of spiritual anorexia and give you a hearty appetite for feasting spiritually on God’s word.
“Let us, therefore, discover anew the humility and the courage to pray and fast so that power from on high will break down the walls of lies and deceit”.
Jesus is telling you the secret of fasting. Listen to Him.
