Fasting To Get Results


By: Emeka Anslem

In 2015 I had a financial challenge that lasted for 7 months. I resigned from an organization where God specifically instructed me to work. Don’t blame me, the circumstance was too emotional to bear as at that time.


I resigned in October 2015, and remained jobless till May 2016. Considering my obstinate behaviour towards God’s instruction, one would think I should suffer. In fact, I judged myself over and over again; I honestly believed that God won’t give me another job. When the year 2016 started, I decided to engage in a 21-day fasting and prayer retreat. I thought to myself that even if God won’t give me another job, He should at least tell me and not be silent on me.
