“Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.”
Once more, read through the entire chapter of Isaiah 58. The promises here are overwhelming. This one comes in the middle of fasting, giving and prayer together in synergy. Verse 7 is giving – sharing your bread with the hungry, the poor, covering the naked. The whole chapter is dealing with fasting for the right reasons. The power of answered prayer comes in at verse 9 – “Then you shall call and the Lord will answer; you shall cry and He will say, Here I am.”
There is nothing like the spiritual strength that comes from this kind of fast. Fast and pray this week and expect to hear from the Lord!
