When Ye Fast – Part 7

Leave a comment

Excerpts from Joy Haney’s book, “When Ye Fast”:

When there is soul searching through prayer, fasting and the Word, there is always a cleansing. The spirit of Isaiah comes upon you and you cry as he cried, “I am a man of unclean lips; take fire and cleanse me.” You naturally feel a humbleness and dependency on God, instead of satisfying your appetites of the flesh with natural things, you become satisfied with spiritual things. When there is a deepening in the spirit and a cleansing, there is a keen awareness that “He must increase, and I must decrease” (John 3:30). Fasting strengthens the inner man while weakening the outer man. Through dying daily and decreasing in self, something strange takes place. He is increased in you and a new power and authority that is not born of man begins to take hold inside of you. You learn to take authority over Satan, you learn how to war in the Spirit. It is a release from fleshly dominion to spiritual dominion. Oh, what a feeling. Oh, what a knowledge. Oh, what a privilege!
