2017 Fasting Guide – Day Seventeen


Jesus taught. But He didn’t just teach, He spoke with authority.

And they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. - Mark 1:22 NKJV

When Jesus advised His disciples to watch and to do as He did, He was telling us … His disciples … to teach, to speak out, to live our lives with the power of God backing our words. You don’t need a pulpit to teach with authority. You need authority to speak with authority. That brings impact. That produces change. That makes atmospheres come into alignment with God’s will. When the Church realizes the authority she has actually been given, there will be no demon in hell that will be able to intimidate and prevail. Demons are real, but Jesus showed us what to do. He cast them out. He had authority, took authority and gave us the same authority over them. And demons knew who was in charge:

24b What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are — the Holy One of God!" 25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet, and come out of him!" 26 And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 Then they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him." - Mark 1:24b-27 NKJV

WE have the same authority. If we are going to live the way God intended us to live, we need to recognize demons, and KICK THEM OUT. Not just out of others, but out of any influence they are trying to have in our lives as well. Jesus knew the power He had over all the things satan had devised to kill, steal and destroy. And He was our model to show us how WE are to act. He took authority over sickness and brought healing.

29 Now as soon as they had come out of the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once. 31 So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them. -
Mark 1:29-31 NKJV

Jesus hates sickness and we should too. We are to operate in the same power of God! He healed all that were sick, and He delivered all that were demon possessed and you are to do the same.

32 At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door. 34 Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him. -
Mark 1:32-34 NKJV
So if we look forward into what His disciples did, we find they treated demons the same way – they kicked them OUT. They prayed for the sick and they operated in signs and wonders and the miraculous. And we are disciples who have been given the same power. There is an awakening to that which lies within us. If we are believers of what God is speaking to us, then we can live an unlimited life with supernatural things occurring to us and through us in our everyday life. Today during this fast I want you to let go of anything of the past that has caused you to shrink back from operating in all that God has equipped you to do. I speak new faith into you and new possibilities. I break off the old mindsets and past disappointments, in the Name of Jesus, and I release the unlimited power and love of God to you right now, in the precious Name of Jesus. Now soak in these songs and let faith be activated. Then go find someone to pray for, or make a phone call or reach out in whatever God tells you to do. But do not remain the same today. Do something special for HIM and find out who YOU are. You are amazing. You are a conduit for the supernatural.

Lord, thank you for your investment in mankind. We realize no one could ever do anything to deserve this kind of love. We are so grateful You have made a way for us to be one with You, the Creator of the universe, yet so willing to let every individual know You personally and co-labor with You. What a Savior! What a Friend! What an amazing Father! I love You and I am so grateful. I let go of the old ways of thinking, and I dare to not only dream Your dreams, but to be a part of making them come true. In the precious Name of Jesus, Amen.

Be Enthroned + I Love You Lord

Outrageous Love


Awaken Me
