The fast will begin on Thursday, January 1, 2021 at midnight.Print Full Fasting Guidelines
During a period of fasting, you are denying yourself food. You are afflicting your body (soul) when it is crying for food. During your fast, you are forcing your body to listen your spirit. Your Spirit will gain more control and your Soul will lose more control. You will begin to walk more in the authority that the Lord gave you. Fasting is no good without prayer.
Fasting increases the anointing of God on your life. It increases your ability to hear from God. If your hearing is clogged, you are not hearing from God as you should. Fasting increases the ability to get results, wisdom, and power from God. Nothing just happens, you must invest your time in fasting and prayer.
Job 23:12 says “You must esteem God’s Word more than your necessary food.” The 6th chapter of Matthew covers Fasting, Praying and Giving. These three will boost your prayer and fasting results. The three most powerful means of getting close to God is through Fasting, Praying and Giving.
Our goals for this 21 Day Fast are to grow in Grace, increase in Knowledge, Anointing, the Power of God, and Manifestation of the Word of God. Expect changes in your life, situations, and receive answers to your prayers. Keep a journal while you are on the fast. Jot down the instructions God has given you. You will have some manifestations while you are on the fast. (This is seed time). You will have greater revelation after the fast. (This is Harvest Time). Expect to receive answers all year through.
It will cost you something for the Anointing. If you want great things from God, it will cost you. What are you willing to do to get results? Things do not just happen.
Fasting and Praying is my way to power. Fasting and Praying will produce power in my life. Fasting and Praying will increase God’s Anointing in my life. In the Name of Jesus, I bind satan, principalities, powers and wicked spirits in heavenly places, and the rulers of darkness. I bind you now satan, I rebuke you now. Stop and cease in your maneuvers against me. I now therefore declare with my mouth that whatsoever I loose on earth is loosed in heaven. In the Name of Jesus, I loose unexpected income, I loose supernatural Anointing, I loose supernatural debt cancellation, I loose healing, I loose deliverance. I loose now prosperity. Money cometh to me now, healing cometh to me now, deliverance cometh to me now, prosperity cometh to me now. I’ll never be broke another day in my life. I receive it, I believe it, it is done now in Jesus’ Name. I therefore declare that at the end of this Fast, my name is Power, Anointing and the Blessed of God.
Throughout the fast, continue to Meditate God’s Word. Biblical Meditation is simply turning the Word of God over in your heart until it produces revelation or spiritual sight. Meditating God’s Word builds faith, which allows you to see with your spiritual eyes in the realm of the spirit. Meditation also builds inner strength to believe, and the ability to hold on to what you believe. Joshua 1:8 says meditating on God’s Word bring Prosperity and good success.
We recommend that you always consult your doctor/health care provider before beginning any type of fast, regardless of the condition of your health status.
If you have any medical conditions or if you have any concerns about your physical ability to fast, we strongly urge you to consult a physician before you start. Your doctor can advise you on how you can participate in this fast.
The Year of 2021 will have 365 days. Will you make the commitment to spend 21 days of the next 365 days to encounter a reinvigorated experience with God? Fasting is a secret source of power that is often overlooked or minimized by many believers. Fasting takes you into a deeper, more intimate, and powerful relationship with the Lord. Fasting allows your spirit to be decluttered by the distractions and things of this world.
Giving, Praying and Fasting are the three duties of every believer
These three things practiced together in your life as a believer creates a threefold cord that is not easily broken. These three cords can lead to a more powerful relationship with God. Ecclesiastes 4:12 King James Version (KJV) And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not broken.
Are you ready to make that commitment now?
Are you ready to use the next 24 days to set the course for the rest of your year?
