But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4
And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but fasting and prayer.” Mark 9:29
When I was asked to write this devotion, I thought about looking up something from Jentezen Franklin or Perry Stone but then I thought I would write from my own experiences.
Prayer is a very powerful thing and then when you add fasting is even more so. When we get to the place that we want to quit feeding ourselves and let God nourish our inner most being, that’s when things happen.
Many years ago when my oldest son was about 10 or 12 years old, it seemed like every Fall he would get pneumonia. This happened about 3 times. This particular year, he was getting sick and I couldn’t stand the thought of it happening again. I decided to fast and pray for three days. At that time I couldn’t do it three days in a row, so every Monday I fasted. After three weeks, God moved on him and he got better and as far as I know he has never had pneumonia again.
I thank God for His miraculous healing power. HE WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN!
