Fasting & Prayer
Today, Wednesday from 12:00AM to 11:59PM we will be fasting from entertaining the devil’s thoughts and falling into temptations by responding with a passage of scripture. (i.e. when the devil tries to tell you that you aren’t loved by God, your response would be “My Father said because He loved me so much, He sent His only Son to die for me” John 3:16) It’s harder for us to resist the devil and flee from him, if we don’t know how he is attacking us individually. By identifying where he’s attacking you, you can prepare a strategic defense that is God divined and Biblically supported. This is a great opportunity to develop an escape plan. Whatever we learn in this fast will be how we’ll deal with our temptations in the future. Even if we wind up in a different scenario, this time we will have acquired ammunition.
