Week 7: Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough

Isaiah 58:5 NKJV “Is it a fast that I have chosen, A day for a man to afflict his soul (bring about a burden)?

The Key to Spiritual Breakthrough:
Have a burden that is great. Activate the burden by fasting on purpose with a purpose. It’s our way of coming to God for the answers and relief needed.

Nehemiah 1:4 NKJV “So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.”

1 John 5:14-15 NKJV “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

Do you have a burden, problem or fear that you need to fast and pray about? There are many types of fasting, simply put , fasting is giving up something you love for something or someone you love more!

Did you experience a conviction, challenge or a commitment you need to make from this devotion?

Week 6: Miracles, Victories and Success

Nehemiah 1:11 NLT “O Lord, please hear my prayer! Listen to the prayers of those who delight in honoring you. Please grant me success today by making the king favorable to me. Put it into his heart to be kind to me. In those days, I was the king’s cup-bearer.”

To be a conqueror we have to have a battle.

The way we respond to the battles in life will greatly determine the miracles we experience. Nehemiah wept, mourned, & prayed. Sin brings curses—God will not be mocked. God wants us to be in the world, but not of the world. Value what God values. Pray and ask God to help you delight in honoring Him.

Week 5: How to Know God’s Will for Your Life

Ephesians 2:10 NKJV “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

To know God’s Will for our life, He has to be the Center of our life. We will be God centered or self-centered. God is more concerned with our character than our comfort. What will be our contribution to further His Kingdom? What good works are you doing that helps further God’s Kingdom?

Read Ephesians 2:10 again in the AMP version.

Ephesians 2:10 NKJV  “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

Are you living the good life God has prearranged for you? Did you experience a conviction, challenge or a commitment you need to make from this devotion?
