EVERYDAY SUCCESS

THE REASON THAT I'M TAKING ALL THIS TIME TO EXPLAIN ABOUT FASTING IS BECAUSE GOD HAS REVEALED TO ME THAT THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF DIVINE PROVISION ON OUR TABLES AND STOREHOUSES IN 2017 AND THAT IF WE DON'T RESTRAIN OUR APPETITE FOR FOOD, WE SHALL NOT TASTE THE HIGHER LEVELS OF BREAKTHROUGHS FOR CELEBRATION THAT HE HAS IN RESERVE FOR US. 

The children of Israel committed all manner of sins when they got to their Promise Land but one reason that Jeremiah prophesied that made Israel to go into captivity in Babylon for 70 years was because they failed to honor the sabbath. Honestly, to our natural thinking, that should not have been a big deal but it was before God. God wanted Israel not to work on the sabbath as He rested on the 7th day and that they should leave their land fallow once every 7 years but they did not obey Him. 

I believe that since our human body was taken from the ground, God has ordained us not just to live by every food from the ground, but that we should also rest the body through fasting. If you look at the most popular chapter in the Bible on fasting, Isaiah 58. God warned his people to refrain from pleasure on the sabbath that is dedicated to fasting. Proverbs 31:17 says that he that loves pleasure will not be rich. Some of us just want to prosper so we too can 'chop life' like the unbelievers around us. Daniel who was among the Israel captives that was brought to Babylon began to rewrite his own story despite the ugly history of his nation by purposing in his heart not to defile himself with the king's delicacies.

 I-DECLARE: I receive the abundance of grace to practice godliness with contentment in 2017 in Jesus name.
