One reason why we fast is so that we can be sure and convinced about God's plan for our lives. I defined fasting as neglecting every other thing and drawing closer to God. And there's no better way to draw closer to God without studying about God. When it comes to fasting, studying is as important as praying. Praying is like breathing, while studying is like eating; if you continue praying without studying, a time will come when you'd run out of points.
God wants to bless us, but He often waits till we find the reason why He wants to bless us. The bible says "When thou has found it, there shall be a reward". Don't spend all your fasting time in prayers, engage in rigorous study about what you're praying for. Isaiah 41:21 says "present your case, and bring your strong proof". If your proof is not strong enough, you may not get the blessing. I remember how God often refers me to a book when I pray to Him regarding a matter of interest. There are times that God will prefer to give you knowledge than to give you answers to prayers.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; PRAYER CHANGES THINGS, BUT THE PRAYER THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING IS THE ONE THAT IS BACKED UP WITH KNOWLEDGE. Have a most fruitful week! In Jesus precious name!
