“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.” Matthew 6:24
“Break your love affair with the world and have a love affair with the creator of the universe.”
Bold statement, one might say it is easier said than done. Well when viewed from a human perspective you are right but all those who accepted Jesus as their Lord should approach it from the Saviour’s point of view.
Two elements will draw us closer to God and help us loose the chains of this world. Prayer rooted in Fasting.
Fasting alone is just going hungry, however if we fast and spend time with the Lord in prayer, we are paving the way and creating the ideal atmosphere to open the channels to receive from God.
Away from the clutter which this world is constantly throwing at us we spend time in prayer and meditation. The Word of God will become alive when we meditate on it while fasting as we are denying our flesh to substitute it with quality time with God. Our heavenly Father is faithful enough to honour this time as it is such a great joy for Him to spend time with His beloved children.
So if today you really desire and require a move of God in your life, you should seek Him with all your heart and might. The Lord gave us such powerful weapons to use, so if sickness is your issue, bondage and addiction, depression or any other life suckers, now it is the time for you to act.
God is waiting for you to make the decisive step for Him to show you how much He cares for you.
What about you? Did you have any breakthrough through fasting and prayer lately?
