EXCEPT BY PRAYER AND FASTING
Matthew 17:14-21 (21) – However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” (NKJV)
When Christ was advising His disciples after they were unable to heal the afflicted child in our Bible reading, He indicated that faith is an essential requirement in our Christian journey. More importantly, Jesus mentioned that some specific issues cannot be resolved except by fasting and prayer. This tells us that to achieve anything tangible in life, we must move beyond the physical.
Life is a spiritual game—our existence is a manifestation of what goes on in the spiritual realm. There is not a single thing that comes easily because there are powers that hinder people from enjoying their birthright in Christ and attaining glory. Therefore, to succeed in destiny and maintain a cordial relationship with God requires diligence and purposeful spiritual exercises. In other words, the lack of vision and discernment, health and conception difficulties, career obstacles, and ancestral curses that trap your glory cannot be cancelled except by fervent prayer (Luke 18:1).
Beloved, I encourage you to use this Easter season to load your heavens with prayers and get ready for a mighty outburst of divine visitation. When you engage God in holiness and by the leading of the Holy Ghost, your prayers won’t go to voicemail.
Hymn: Christian, seek not yet repose — Charlotte Elliott (1836)
