God knows you'd feel pain on your quest for empowerment. He also knows you'd become thirsty and hungry. The bible says "blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, they shall be filled". In other words, the people who suffer the pain of hunger and thirst just to draw nearer to God are blessed by God, and He fills them with His power and glory.
For those who are currently undergoing fasting and prayer exercise, i'd like to encourage you from scriptures that; the sufferings and pains you're going through now is nothing, compared to the glory that God will reveal to you in return. Isn't it a wonderful thing to know that the hunger and thirst of a few days is putting the key to a glorious year in your hand? However, don't suffer for nothing. Create a study and prayer time while you fast. Fasting in its real sense means neglecting every other thing and drawing closer to God. And there's really no way to draw closer to God without studying about God.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; FASTING DRAWS YOU CLOSER TO GOD, PRAYER GIVES YOU POWER FROM GOD, FAITH GIVES YOU VICTORY IN THE WORLD. Have a most fruitful day! In Jesus precious name!
