Open Heaven 29 October 2023 Topic: Fasting Is A Weapon Of War

Memory Verse: And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. (2 Chronicles 20:3)

Bible Reading: Esther 4:15-17 (WEB)

15 Then Esther asked them to answer Mordecai,

16 “Go, gather together all the Jews who are present in Susa, and fast for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day. I and my maidens will also fast the same way. Then I will go in to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish.”

17 So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.

There was this man called Mordecai — Esther’s uncle. There was also Haman – an officer of the king, who hated Mordecai.

Haman expected everybody to bow to him, but Mordecai wouldn’t bow to anybody except God. Haman decided to hang him and destroy his people completely.

Haman got the king to sign the death warrant of all the Israelites. When Mordecai heard of the decree from the king, he went to Esther, who was then the queen, for help.

Esther replied in Esther 4:1-17 that they should all fast, and then she would go and see the king. They fasted for just three days and things began to change from that point.

By the time we got to Esther 5:1-6, Esther appeared before the king without being summoned and the first result of the fasting was that instead of the king asking her to be killed,

he spared her life. Fasting can change death to life. The next thing that happened is that Esther found unusual favour before the king.

The king told Esther that though he is yet to know what she wants, but she should consider it granted already, even up to half of his kingdom. When you fast, you get more than you ask for.

By the time we get to Esther 6, the king couldn’t sleep until he honoured Mordecai. A good deed that Mordecai did many years previously, which had been forgotten, made the king restless until it was repaid.

When you take fasting seriously, all your past benefits that you have been denied can be brought forward and handed over to you.

In Esther 7, the enemy of the entire nation became completely uprooted, and then in Esther 8, the house of Haman was given over to Esther.

Proverbs 13:22 says that the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just; do you think the wicked will let go of his wealth easily? You get it by fasting and praying. Wealth changes hands when you fast.

Mordecai also got promoted because promotion comes from God (Psalm 75:6-7), and since fasting draws you closer to God, it leads to promotion.

Finally, in Esther 8:3-17, the Jews were saved from destruction, and the Bible also says all the people around became Jews because they were afraid of the Jews.

Fasting is a powerful weapon of warfare. Begin to use this weapon from today.
