Isaiah 40:31 -But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
The secret to power is waiting upon the Lord. If you really want to have power in your life, that is how it starts. It is difficult for most people because the flesh hates to be disciplined.
Psalm 62:1 -Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
It is as the school of waiting on the Lord that the flesh loses its force.
Psalm 130:5 -I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
Psalm 25:5 -Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Do you want to renew your strength? Do you want the power of God? Then, wait on Him. The flesh will fight and scream for attention but wait on the Lord until the flesh vanishes. Without waiting, there is no power in your mouth and when you lack power, angels will have no assignment to carry out on your behalf; and satan and his agents will then have opportunity to carry out their ministries but that will not be your portion in the name of Jesus!
So, when you wait on the Lord, God empowers you because the fullness of the spirit and your waiting are linked together; they are inseparable. When you wait on the Lord, self is emptied and you will be able to receive God’s fullness. It gives the Holy Spirit full access to touch your depth.
Psalm 42:7-8 -Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. 8 Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
This means that when you wait on the Lord, God brings His presence which is like a water sprout that will lift you into another realm of power and strength. God empowers your spirit man for dominion and your soul is empowered for social revolution. Even your body will not be left out because it will be empowered for exploits.
Dan. 11:32b – …but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
You are empowered from the altar of prayers and fasting because empowerment answers to demand. Fasting is primarily ordained for spiritual empowerment.
Isaiah 58:6 -Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
You can never come across a man/woman working in power that does not subscribe to fasting. Don’t be careless with your spiritual life; discipline yourself. You can pray to be empowered but it takes fasting to walk in power. It is not enough to be empowered; you need to walk in power because you don’t know when the next challenge of life will come.
Apostle Paul was a man giving to prayer and fasting; and he was endued with unusual dimension of power that made the people in Acts 14:11 describe him as a goD.
Acts 14:11 -And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.
You cannot walk in power without engaging in fasting. Revelation becomes stale until it is empowered. Therefore, wake up from your slumber and fight your way up and you will get there in Jesus name –Amen!
God bless you
