Securing God’s help Through FastingText: Isa. 58: 6-8
Fasting and praying is a platform for obtaining divine help. When you fast, you apply for divine help (2 chr20:3). Every promise of God to you carries a demand including the help of God. Therefore, every time you respond to the demand of God, He has no choice but to release His blessing for your benefits.
Securing God’s help Through Fasting
Securing His HelpFasting is that force that secures your help from God, taking you from the low realm to the high realm. God’s help means divine assistance- Ps 108:12. Every demand God place on you is a demand that avails His help to you. When you respond to God’s demand , the help of God is secured; so when God demands that you fast, it is for you to renew your strength, to be empowered and ultimately to be helped.
