I’ve heard from many who are suffering the enemy’s attack this week. This is to be expected because Satan hates when we fast because he knows fasting releases God’s power and produces break-through!
Jesus understands what you’re going through. When Jesus was in the wilderness fasting for 40 days, Satan came and tempted Him to turn stones into bread and thus, bring the fast to a premature end. But Jesus didn’t do it, because He was determined to complete the fast God called Him to finish. Jesus was aware that fasting produces benefits that can’t be gained in any other way! So He rebuked the devil and sent him packing.
Rebuke the devil when he attacks you during your fast. Say, “I renounce you Satan in Jesus’ name!”
Remember what happened in Jesus’ life and ministry after His fast? Immediately He began to do mighty miracles!
John 10:10 says of Satan, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.” Satan wants to steal your break-through–don’t let him!! The enemy does not want you to experience the power, peace, and joy that will come as a result of fasting while seeking God.
Satan is using attacks to DISTRACT you from completing the fast.
“Don’t allow the enemies in your life to cause you to focus more on your appetite or circumstances than on the promises of God that are released when you employ the powerful weapon of fasting.” Jentezen Franklin, Fasting
Satan doesn’t have any new tricks in his bag, so he keeps using the ones that accomplish his dirty work concerning you.
BEWARE! Attacks will come, but greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world!
