Seriousness Will Produce Great Things (Evening)
2 Chronicles 16:9a For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
Nineveh was a city that was originally known for its wickedness. It is recorded in the Bible that God would overturn the city if it did not repent. If we remember the story about Sodom and Gomorrah, maybe that is what will happen to the city of Nineveh if they do not immediately return from all its wickedness. But when Jonah’s call to repent was delivered, they responded extraordinarily. The king of Nineveh immediately announced that all the people, even their animals, should fast. And because of that God, who originally wanted to destroy the city, regrets and DOES NOT DO IT. (Jonah 3:10)
Here we learn how prayer and fasting did with sincerity will never be in vain. There are many extraordinary things, which in the case of the city of Nineveh, are even able to CHANGE GOD’S DECISION. The city which was originally determined to be in darkness because it was about to be overthrown by God’s wrath, was turned into a city with repentance. The light of God is revealed and until now we all know this city as a city that was saved by God because of his repentance through fasting prayers.
Yes, the same thing will happen in our life. Make the 21-day prayer and fasting movement great momentum. Let’s get down to it even more. Let’s on God with sincerity. He is a faithful and loving God. When God finds us sincere in our respective prayer and fasting, HIS STRENGTH AND POWER will be bestowed upon us, so that we will be able to face all challenges and become winners. Hallelujah!
When we FAST WHOLEHEARTEDLY, our lives will be full of many INCREDIBLE things.

“Jesus, thank you we are now in fasting and prayer movement. We know that there are many great things that You will reveal in our midst. Enable us to have a more earnest heart, O Lord because we long to see Your glory manifested more in our lives. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
