Fasting Will Impact Your Generations!
I wonder if my Great Mom pictured below with my Great Grandfather, had any idea of the impact her fasting would have on her family. She would pray and fast every New Years for her family and the generations that followed. I am proud to say… I am one of those generations!
Sometimes when we fast we have thoughts of “what’s the use”, ”I don’t since anything happening”, or “is this really worth it?” These thoughts and more swirl through my head during a fast and even the days that follow.
I am reminded….
Of the time when my husband Bob and I were in Indonesia and God prompted us to a fast. I began a 3 day absolute fast. No food. No water. I was desperate. My focus? My children. I was adamant to see God move in their lives as I cried out on their behalf all through the night. When I completed the 3 days, I remember thinking how nothing really major seemed to happen – in my life or my children.
But a few years later after that particular fast…
My son called me full of excitement telling me about a remarkable discovery that just took place in his life. Just as our phone conversation came to an end, immediately God spoke to my heart saying, ”Kelly remember that 3 day fast a few years ago in Indonesia? Well… his discovery is a result of that fast!”
Be encouraged… your fasting is not in vain!
God is moving heaven and earth for your family members. You are shaking the atmosphere as you draw aside in fasting and prayer. Just as God did for my Great mom and the generations that have followed her, so it shall be for you and your generations!
The Joys of fasting!
