“You see, fasting means crucifying what I refer to as ‘King Stomach…’ He [God] will provide you with the grace to endure and see the breakthroughs you need to come to pass. However, you will have to choose to dethrone that ‘dictator within…’ It has been said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Most women have come to know it, but we need to understand that the devil knows it too!”-Jentzen Franklin
The devil knows what fasting releases in the believer’s life. He knows what it means for your marriage, your relationships, your children, your faith, your spiritual wisdom, your vision, and the breakthroughs from the Master of Breakthroughs. So of course, he tempted you to give up the fast all day. Read how the devil has used food from the beginning to get us to disobey God. Think about this account in the Garden of Eden when you’re tempted to eat during the fast. Dr.J.
Genesis 2:8-9, 16-17 NIV “Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. And the Lord God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.’”
