“As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work where unto I have called them.” Acts 13:2 (KJV)
This passage highlights a powerful revelation about fasting. It brings to our attention the power of combining fasting with worship. Ministering to God in song, reading His word, praying and meditating are all forms of worship. If you have not been adding prayer and devotion to our time of fasting, you are missing a powerful element of this spiritual discipline. Combined with worship, fasting enables you to hear from God more clearly. Maybe you will not hear in the same manner as is found in this passage, but God will make His will known and His direction clear. Seeking for new direction and clearer understanding? Make time to worship during this fast and poise yourself to hear from God.
I have whatever I need for the tasks that God has given me. He has equipped me even though I may not see the provision. In His abundance, I have every gift and talent required to do His will. By faith, I moved in obedience to God’s will and purpose in my life.
1. Build your worship muscles. Spend at least 15 minutes in song, prayer, Bible reading and daily praise. You can add on there.
2. List 10 things for which you are grateful.
3. Drink plenty of water.
