Isaiah 58:6

"Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of the wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

One of the ways that God uses to draw us closer to HIM is fasting, otherwise known as waiting upon the Lord. This process will eventually draw us nearer to the source of God’s sovereign power, to loose the bands of the wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke.

Fasting without praying may defeat the purpose of fasting. When we fast, we must combine it with prayer so as to achieve what the Lord proposed in Isaiah 58:6. It is achievable if we face the process as God stated in the earlier part of Isaiah 58. Please read as the Holy Spirit directs. Yoke is the extent of what the enemy can do to deny one of his/ her part or full destiny except God interferes. In the case of the Israelites, God stepped in because of the covenant.

Fasting is purely a spiritual warfare tool used to address and face the challenges of troubles of life ranging from losing the band and breaking every yoke that is caused by the wickedness of the wicked or by ourselves. There is no trouble that seeking the face of God with fasting and prayers cannot redeem and resolve. God is the foundation and the pillar of our lives, He knows how to redirect our path if we seek HIM in Spirit and in truth. Praise God!
