This week’s blog posts will be sharing excerpts from the book, A Walk in the Wilderness: The Spiritual Discipline of Fasting.
pg 68 — “Fasting enables you to move obstacles that prayer alone cannot:
Matthew 17:20-21 — If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
I believe that most obstacles we face in life can be removed when we take them to God in prayer. The reason so many Christians have so many problems is simply because they have not developed a prayer life. They do not pray. But I have found in certain seasons of life, that I have faced situations that required me to fast. In these situations, it took fasting to move the mountains.”
