Praying & Fasting

This is the day that the Lord hath made... Inside of this day we can have miracles & healing. He knows what we need and through fasting and prayer it can come about. Now is not the time to give up or turn around. Now is the time to get tougher against the enemy that wars with our soul. If we haven't fasted for some time and are physically able to do so, we need to skip that meal or two. We stand in awe in what that does in the spiritual realm. I have a friend that taught me to speak to my stomach and say "you're not going to eat right now". In this situation, we need to stand boldly in what needs to be done. We need to get this flesh under subjection. Yes you may get hungry and think you can't make it, but you can. The next meal is right around the corner. When you have finished your fast, you will be in wonder how God Almighty has worked. The sacrifice of the flesh is not always easy, but it's worth it. If we want dreams, visions, and a closer walk with Him, this is one of the best ways to get there. If we have had all of that in the past and no longer witness those things, we need to check our fasting and prayer level. Visions are real, miracles are real, and a closer walk with Him is real. Being in His presence is the most rewarding part of it all.

A beautiful post, TJ ~
This might be something I should do. I sometimes only eat a couple of meals- get a late start. The staying up too late needs to go.
