Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Fasting, For the Keys of Heaven are fond when we stop consuming the things of this World. For Jesus said that He had Spiritual food when he went without earthly food, why should things be less for us? I Thank you Lord for making us see that when we go without, that it is you that we survive on!
It is Written, “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:16-26
Pray non stop, Pray as it is written and never cease! All things are possible in the Spirit, but you must believe and eager seek. I know these things have been spoken, but I feel lead to bring them to you once again. I daily rose and eagerly dressed to work a job in which my hope was a pay check and I was rewarded. I set aside things of the Spirit to gratify the things of the Flesh and I was ever so hungry and never full on what I sought. I fed an emptiness that grew and grew until I was unsatisfied with all things that was around me. The Flesh is never content, that is why greed is so rampant. This is why the heart of man is so evil. We are lead by emotions and hungry. These things bring forth only destruction and not life. We find the things of the Spirit are counter to that of the Flesh. If you are to feed the spirit, you Fast starving the flesh. When you let go of one, the other takes control. No man can serve two master, either one is in control and the other is prisoner or vice versa.
Prayer: Father, I Pray that we take account of the Time Given to us, every Blessed opportunity is one that you have given us to Spread the Gospel in Jesus Name, Amen!
Amen! We are con God’s time here on Earth, if we are doing more harm to His name than good, He may see fit to bring us Home. Pray for you to continue seeking the Spirit and let go of these things of the flesh that have you bound up! We can do ALL things in Christ!
