Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Fasting is an ancient weapon that God ordained. Fasting is abstinence from things that pleasure and weaken the flesh, food etc. Jesus said this ‘’howbeit this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.’’ There are three combined power factors: prayer, seed, and fasting. When you have prayed and the situation persists, you must learn how to switch on fasting.
Fasting activates the Spirit by increasing your sensitivity. While your prayer moves God, fasting moves you. The greatest enemy of a believer is not Satan but self. What take care of self is the Cross. Remember the power is not in the flesh or the body but in our human spirit.
The recreated human spirit is powerful and whenever that power is unleashed things happen. However according to Galatians 5:17, the flesh is always in enmity with the spirit and therefore needs to be tamed.
The fastest way to tame the flesh and release the potential power in the spirit is fasting. Whatever feeds the flesh, and, empower it can be fasted and your spiritual sensitivity is awakened. Learn to fast food, movies, negative news, bad companies and unwholesome words.
Fasting also deals with spiritual strongholds. There will always be horns that will attempt to overthrow God’s plan and purpose but in the place of fasting you can deal with these forces.
Moses fasted severally just like Jesus Christ and Apostle Paul did. Fasting is one of the core disciplines of a victorious Christian.
Choose a day of the week when you must, fast and wait on God.
