Esther 4:16 “Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.”

As a believer, the greatest advantage we have is that we can talk to our God and get answers. Esther needed answers and assistance so she invoked the power of the God of Israel.

Friend, fasting and prayer brings clarity, hope for deliverance and divine assistance. Esther knew clearly that in this particular situation, a heavenly response was needed for an earthly situation that was threatening to swallow up a whole nation.

Fasting and prayer is not a religious activity, it is a potent force that opens up portals for us in the spirit and draws divine ability to aid us. Esther understood this truth and therefore commanded his people to engage this force. They fasted and prayed and literally brought down God into their situation.

Despite all the seeming power at the disposal of King Ahasuerus and Herman, they succumbed to the power of God invoked in the secret place. They were in the palace making laws, passing decrees and judgments but all that counted for nothing when Israel fasted and bowed her knees.

Friend, that mountain-like problem before you can dissipate if you’ll just fast and pray. Thank God Esther gave us a three days prayer and fasting model that can be followed.

Your destiny and life are serious matters and you must be ready to subdue all militating forces against you by the superior fire power of fasting and prayers.

Pleading and crying won’t solve the problem. The devil doesn’t understand the language of mercy. When you get in tune with the Creator in the place of fasting and prayers, the creation and their decrees bow!

Quit running from pillar to post looking for help, settle down and fight your battles on your knees. No force on earth can withstand it. Why not try it today?

Love you BiG
