The Fast that God has Chosen

The Fast that God has Chosen Isaiah 58: 6-14

Loose the bonds of wickedness; let the oppressed go free.
Undo the heavy burdens and feed the hungry.
Clothe the naked and do not seek to hide
From your own flesh which must be crucified.

Then your light will flash on quickly,
And your health spring forth speedily.
The glory of the Lord shall be your reward,
And His righteousness in your heart poured.

Prayer quickly answered, His blessing releasing.
Warfare prayer throughout the world is exploding.
It is fasting, repenting and a desperate cry
That opens the glory gate to the divine supply.

An undisciplined spirit hides deep in the soul.
It hates fasting and being brought under control.
It is filled with Satan; it I his launching base
To keep us from maturing in God’s saving grace.

We must throttle all of our carnality
To have a clean heart for this reality.
When our words are His words, Satan will flee
And then we will experience the end-time victory.

It takes a clean, holy body for this sacrifice.
Are we willing to submit and pay such a price?
Willing to exchange our fleshly heart
For the Lord’s nature to impart.

Sin is so ghastly in the eyes of a holy God.
Without repentance, we’ll pass beneath His rod.
We dare not let a thing hinder God’s last call.
Right now we must decide, and yield Him our all.

Don’t point the finger and speak vanity,
And your darkness will be as the noon day.
A repaired of the breach you shall be.
A restorer of paths for others to see.

Only a willing heart can pay this price
And have a body qualified for sacrifice.
Such joy and rejoicing, and glory to be had,
Regardless of the price, we’ll be so glad.

Don’t seek your pleasure or delight.
Love and serve God with all your might.
You’ll ride the high places, declares His word
And feed on God’s heritage. Thus saith the Lord.

I want to adhere to these things and pray.
Now who will go with me, this anointed way?
There will be no regrets for what we may go through
When we see what Jesus has prepared for those that do.
"Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh." Matt. 12: 34
