Fasting Brings Restoration

Fasting Brings Restoration by myles munroe
Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.(Isaiah 58:6–9)
Isaiah says a fast pleasing to God has the power to break the chains
of injustice and destroy the yokes of the oppressed. God’s anointing—which comes through fasting consecrated to Him—can deliver people.
A true fast causes you to value what’s  important, such as giving to those in need and having a burden for souls. Isaiah 58:12 describes the outcome of such a fast: “Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”
Lives will be restored to God and you will receive God’s blessings. Verse eight says, “Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear.” Fasting activates faith for healing. Isaiah 58:8 also says, “Your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.”
Protection and other blessings result from fasts that please God.
Prayer:
Father, help me turn to You in a time of fasting that breaks the yokes of the oppressed and restores the lives of people around me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Fasting restores people’s lives and brings God’s
blessings.
Reading: Ezra 1–2; John 19:23–42
