Yesterday @ TFH we were reminded that we are to PRAY FIRST and prepare our hearts to receive God’s Word. It really is our task, but many times it is an all out battle against things that try to crowd out God’s Word.

Thank God that He has more than equipped us with weapons to fight the conflict that we are in, and fasting is one of the most powerful weapons that you can use.

We are in an “all out” battle! Satan wants nothing more than to destroy you and me.

He has three objectives;
to kill
to steal
to destroy

He wants to steal the Word, limit it, or choke it out. The enemy wants to keep us from believing God for Big things!

I think it’s time for us to seek God like never before, and believe God like never before! Let’s stop limiting God in what we think He can do and start asking Him for the big things we aren’t sure He can do! If Satan can convince us to not ask for the things we want God to do, then he has already won the battle.

Ephesians 3:20
God is able to do, “exceedingly, abundantly, above all we ask or imagine.”

I have determined in my heart to ask God for big things this year! I know that when I have big requests, He is going to bless me with massive answers. If I bring miniature prayers, then I am going to get small results! He will do more than I ask or even imagine!

This year I am proclaiming

Habakkuk 1:5,
“I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.”

Along with fasting, the weapon of expectancy can shatter the Devil’s schemes for your life! Rather than doubting that you will receive that miracle, change your perspective and believe you will receive it. Rather than talk about how bad things are, talk about how good your God is.

Take away the enemy’s ammunition with a “spirit of expectancy.” Expectancy is knowing that God is going to show up in your life in 2016 and work miracles!

Thank Him that this time next year you will not be in the same place that you are now.

What big things do you need to declare war over?  What battles do you need victory in? What unanswered prayers do you have that can only be answered through fasting and prayer?

Believing with you that 2016 will be The Best Year Ever!
