Do You Need a Breakthrough?

Do you need a breakthrough for you, your family, your marriage, your ministry or business? Does it seem like something is preventing the answer to your prayers from coming forth? Perhaps, you need to enter into a time of prayer and fasting.

Both prayer and fasting are 2 supernatural weapons of spiritual warfare, and when used together they cause us to become lethal to the enemy’s plans formed against us.

But even though we have been given such powerful weapons to overcome the wiles of satan, most Christians do not use them. Why? The Bible tells us in Matthew 26:41, “The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” It takes obedience and discipline to activate the power of prayer and fasting.

Yes, it takes obedience. According to the Bible, it is not if, but when you fast. Do you realize that fasting is mentioned about 80 times throughout the Bible? And 30 or more of these verses are found in the New Testament.

I remember one time I was about to sit down and read and study my Bible, but before I did I asked the Lord if He wanted me to embark on another fast. Wouldn’t you know my Bible fell open to the following passage, “I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.” Job 23:12. Now, I had a choice to make, either I was going to pretend that the Lord did not respond to my request or I was going to obey Him. Fortunately, I obeyed.

Prayer and fasting are spiritual disciplines. And just as godly parents train and discipline their children in the ways of the Lord, so too, our Heavenly Father loves us and knows what we have need of. He understands what is best for us, and by activating these spiritual weapons, we also gain 2 important attributes of the Lord, obedience and discipline. Prayer and fasting are beneficial for us.

 

Let’s look at some of the benefits that prayer and fasting provide us with.

Spiritual Benefits

o   Protection from our enemies

o   Freedom from the bondages of sin

o   Victory over temptations

o   Manifestation of physical healing

o   Deliverance from evil spirits

o   Repentance and revival

o   Restoration

o   Release into ministry

 

Physical Benefits

o   Detoxes your body from impurities.

o   Resets your hormones.

o   Lowers weight.

o   It has other physical benefits as well, such as, lowering cholesterol levels, and high blood pressure, and other physical ailments.

Prayer and fasting have both physical and spiritual benefits for us, but even more importantly they are heavenly weapons that when used together cause spiritual breakthrough for us.

On the next post, let’s look at few different types of fasts found in God’s Word for you to choose from.

      No, it’s not too late. We are finishing up with day 15 of 21. This Sunday is the last day of the fast. I’d love to have you join. And if you want do the 21 days on your own or finish out the week with us. :O)

  3. Moira Shole says:

    I need a breakthrough – my husband has been without income for more than 20yrs. We have been married for 37yrs but it has not been easy although the Lord was good for educating my three children and giving me a good job. I have challenges at work because it is a coven. I do not have my own house, that is what I am believing God for, my own house since I am about to retire. My son of 34yrs also lost his job.

    1. Becky Dvorak says:

      In the name of Jesus’, I apply the power of the blood of Jesus over your financial situation. I curse this spirit of lack, I declare financial breakthrough, and all of your needs are met according to the riches in glory, in Jesus’ most holy name, amen.

  4. Paola Ditaranto says:

    Hi Becky, we are so happy your coming to Niagara Falls Canada in April we look forward to meeting you. We are asking if you could agree with us in prayer for the complete freedom of our daughter from autism and breakthrough in her speech and development. We are so excited for her and we thank Jesus for what has already done, we praise him and thank him. God please you Becky, Paola

    1. Becky Dvorak says:

      In the name of Jesus’ I renounce the power behind this label of autism. I release the delivering and recreative healing power of the Holy Spirit to hover over her. I speak to her brain to be recreated and to function 100%, that her ability to speak come forth and all else that needs to happen for her to be all that she is created to be for the glory of the Lord, amen.

      We’ll see you in Niagara Falls.
