TOPIC: Benefits Of Fasting (2)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
2 Chronicles 23–24; John 15
Mark 9:29 – And He said unto them, this kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
Fasting is the first principle of medicine; fast and see the strength of the spirit reveal itself.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY
The power that receives unmerited favour shall rest upon you, in the Name of Jesus.
Esther 4:15-17, Esther 5:1-5
15-16 Then Esther sent this answer to Mordecai: “Mordecai, go and get all the Jews in Susa together, and fast for me. Don’t eat or drink for three days and nights. I and my women servants will fast too. After we fast, I will go to the king. I know it is against the law to go to the king if he didn’t call me, but I will do it anyway. If I die, I die.”
17 So Mordecai went away and did everything Esther told him to do.
Esther Speaks to the King
5 On the third day, Esther put on her special robes. Then she stood in the inside area of the king’s palace, in front of the king’s hall. The king was sitting on his throne in the hall, facing the place where people enter the throne room. 2 When the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, he was very pleased. He held out to her the gold scepter that was in his hand. So Esther went in to the room and went near the king. Then she touched the end of the king’s gold scepter.
3 Then the king asked, “What is bothering you Queen Esther? What do you want to ask me? I will give you anything you ask for, even half my kingdom.”
4 Esther said, “I have prepared a party for you and Haman. Will you and Haman please come to the party today?”
5 Then the king said, “Bring Haman quickly so that we may do what Esther asks.”
So the king and Haman went to the party Esther had prepared for them.
MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DEVOTIONAL (JUNE 5, 2023) MESSAGE
Another benefit of fasting is that it makes one to receive divine favour in the sight of all. Fasting paves way for one to be favoured.
In today’s fire scripture, the law of the land stipulated that Esther must wait for the king to call her or send for her, but she went into three days’ dry fast and put her faith into operation. She came out to see the king without minding the consequences and she received the “come along, by holding out the scepter to her.” Esther 5:2 says, “And it was so, when the King saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hands. So, Esther drew near, and touched the top of the scepter.”
Dearly Beloved, what would have resulted in instant death turned out to be the point of life and divine favour. Are you in any situation that is not working out the way you want? Are you the best in your office, but the most persecuted? Are you the only one that is getting results in your place of work and yet you are the most insulted person there?
Why not go back to God in fasting and prayer and pray out the spirit of hatred and rejection from your life. God is a God of favour. If you ask Him to favour you, you will not miss out again on favour.
Do you know that favour is to be treated with partiality and special treatment? Every child of God deserves to be treated specially as if they are the only one on ground.
Dear reader of this devotional, fasting can put you in the room of favour where everything will begin to work for your good anywhere you find yourself.
God is expecting you to ask for special favour from Him and He will decorate your life with favour.
1. Power of heavenly favour, fall upon me, in the Name of Jesus.
2. Spirit of excellence, rest upon me, in the Name of Jesus.
3. Power to be wiser than my enemies, come into my life, in the Name of Jesus.
4. Thou Herod of our house, release my star and die, in the Name of Jesus.
5. Every Pharaohic taskmaster, die, in the Name of Jesus.
6. Favour and grace that conquers all, come into my life, in the Name of Jesus.
7. O God, arise and promote me beyond human comprehension, in the Name of Jesus.
