READ: Mark 9:28-29
28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Leviticus 26-27
Fasting is a necessity for every Christian to gain access to power. The Bible lays emphasis on the importance of fasting and how it fuels our prayer life.
In today’s Bible text, the disciples were confused about why they couldn’t cast out a demon while Jesus did it effortlessly. He responded that some miracles will not happen unless by fasting and praying.
Fasting also helps one to easily do the will of God. Beloved, we are in the end time, and satan is trying everything to make Sure that many Christians don’t make it to Heaven. Therefore, you must be more vigilant and put yourself under divine constraints by fasting. Fasting is not meant for pastors, parents or leaders only, but for every Christian who doesn’t want the flesh to hinder him/her spending eternity with God. Also, fasting helps one to draw closer to God and become more powerful spiritually. So, make it a habit to fast at least once a week.
Fast today and pray for 10 minutes every hour till you break your fast.
HYMN 8 – O Jesus, I Have Promised
- O Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
Be Thou for ever near me,
My Master and my Friend:
I shall not fear the battle
If Thou art by my side,
Nor wander from the pathway
If Thou wilt be my Guide.
- O let me feel Thee near me;
The world is ever near;
I see the sights that dazzle,
The tempting sounds I hear;
My foes are ever near me,
Around me and within;
But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer,
And shield my soul from sin.
- O let me hear Thee speaking
In accents clear and still,
Above the storms of passion,
The murmurs of self-will;
O speak to reassure me,
To hasten or control;
O speak and make me listen,
Thou Guardian of my soul.
- O Jesus, Thou hast promised
To all who follow Thee,
That where Thou art in Glory
There shall Thy servant be;
And, Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;
O give me grace to follow
My Master and my Friend.
