    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

    Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 'How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, that murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Tell them, As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you' N...

    Elijah said to him, Elisha, please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me to Jericho. He said, As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you. So they came to Jericho. 2 Kings 2:4 WEBElisha had worked serving the prophet Elijah for several years when he suddenly asked him to stay behind. E...

The Word of The Lord Came

  • Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came to me: Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle will come to you and say, Buy my field that is at Anathoth, for the right of redemption by purchase is yours. Then Hanamel my cousin came to me Jeremiah 32:68 ESV

    The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah and instructed him to buy his uncles field. Before long, his uncle came to him and offered to sell it to him. Jeremiah the prophet then said, "Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord." Jeremiah bought the field.

    Once while on the last day of a seven-day fast, my wife and I were praying in separate rooms. Just like anyone else on the last day of a fast, we were already planning our lunch and our menu for the rest of the week, maybe the month, when suddenly I felt that we were supposed to fast ten days. I was hungry and silently thought, "That cannot be God, that is the devil!"

    When we came out of our prayer rooms and sat at the table, my wife said, I think we are supposed to fast ten days and my countenance fell. I looked at the clock and it was 10:10 on the 10th. The number ten appeared everywhere. We gave in and continued to fast for another three days. The first seven days had been easy, but the last three were very difficult, almost like we were wrestling with something. We were.

    At the end of the ten days, we saw real miracles happen. We went to a family Thanksgiving dinner and it suddenly turned into a prayer meeting. Most of them were out of jail that weekend, so we lined them up and as we prayed for them, they would crumple to the floor in tears. Painful relationships where people had not spoken to each other in years, were mended. It was a major breakthrough.

    When you feel like God may be speaking to you, He will often confirm it with signs around you and and open a door. If that is the case, go for it! The word of the Lord has come to you.

Twila Stierwalt
Twila Stierwalt Gods timing is always right, God is using my daughter and her husband car accident for His glory. They both are testifying that if that 16 year old boy had not hit them, he would have been dead. They truly believe that if they had not been there at that exact time, He would have gone over that ravine and would have died. The police told them that. Praise God for His timing.

Carol Pady
Carol Pady Oh How Well I can relate when it comes to fasting. God has told me at times to fast from different foods, the foods I crave the most! I have a sweet tooth and  I found this fasting more difficult of course but well worth the denial. These fasts meant more to me as I  found the strength to resist temptation. God rewarded me with answered prayer!

Deleted Member Amen, this so touched my heart, I have went through similar things and it was as if Jesus would show me the same things he was showing my husband. We knew these things had come from Jesus. Because He always showed up in the way He had said and He always done what He said He would do. Praise The Lord. Thank you for this word..

Albert Chau
Albert Chau God is here today as in the Old Testament. He works through miraculous signs and dreams like in Daniel and Joseph's amazing lives. It can be downright scary. Fear the Lord is the beginning of wisdom as the Bible said.

Deleted Member I can't tell you exactly, but in my case I have always had this feeling inside my heart, that Jesus was wanting to do something or answer something or someone I had been praying for, and it was as if He was saying give up something for me through fasting and let Me show you that I am working. Its like you know it when you have that feeling and also there have been times in my life that i would go on a fast because I wanted a closer walk with Jesus or I had something that was really troubling me and I would fast and pray whether it was a day a week a month, whatever I felt in my heart. I can remember when I was praying for  my husband to be saved, I loved pepsi so much, but I felt lead to give it up until my husband gave his heart to Jesus. I prayed  and fasted everyday for 6 weeks and on that particular Sunday he gave his heart to The Lord , I remembering coming home after church and saying oh I can have some pepsi now. But no matter how long it  have took I would have done it, because Jesus saved my husband that day and that was one of the happiest days of my life. He had always been in church and always went with me to church every Sunday, even though I had prayed and prayed for his soul, Jesus just showed me I needed to fast and pray and it works. Praise The Lord it works.

Deleted Member If you have medical issues you need to talk to your doctor first i would think, because different disorders can cause different problems if we change out routine. But Jesus knows your heart and you and Him can have an amazing conversation. He will listen to your hearts desire. God bless you.

Dion Todd Me and Sylvia fast many times when we feel the Lord tugging at our heart, but if we have not heard the call in a long time then we just set a date and start. I hope to write a fasting guide soon.

Dion Todd I began to have stomach problems once that just bothered me all the time for most of a year. Sylvia and I went on a 30 day juice fast and the problems went away and never returned. This last time we did a "Daniel fast" where we only ate vegetables, fruits and nuts. There are many ways to fast that can fit most anyones life, but yes, if you have medical problems then you might should consult a doctor before you start.  :)

Nell Neathery
Nell Neathery Amen for confirmation for God's Word by asking, listening, and following God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit...I am seeing signs and doors opening (but one door at a time, please, since I am slowing down and keeping it simple to be sure in my present and future.  All I need to do is to continue to trust and obey. Yes, the Word of the Lord has come to me.  Thank you Pastor.  LOL...how long have I been fasting?!  2-1/2 months, but you reminded me...I need to go see about my meal plan before I go to the store again.  there will be a Mother's Day breakfast, cooked by the men of the church, and there is probably going to eat a lot of food at 9 a.m., and I usually don't have my bread with grape jelly (no butter) and water until afternoon after I spent the morning with Jesus.  What will look appetizing?! WWJD?!  Good to read a devotional and comment, even though I have passed my 3-line limit.  :-).

Burma Welber I will be looking for your fasting guide, I have fasted some, not for some time now. I know people that do fast, but they all do it in different ways. Some short time, some for long periods of time. I will say it confuses me on how it should be done.

John Worden IV
John Worden IV Dion: You might have mentioned that Jeremiah bought the land at a time when the Israelites were being exiled and his friends thought he was nuts. Toughest thing is to know if it's God, Satan or just you. Also, never having had that moment I wonder, at times, if I wasn't listening.

Allie Ponzo
Allie Ponzo I totally feel the same way, It's hard to know at times if it's God satan or just our flesh. I know we must line things up with the bible and some things are very clear, like out right sin but then there are other situations that are not and I don't want to make the wrong choice. I think the closer we are to God and read His word the clearer and easier it is to distinguish His voice from all others. I have to admit, I pray a lot but I don't spend enough quiet time reading and listing, it takes practice and discipline.

Allie Ponzo Just read this devotional and so appreciate your candor and honesty all the time. I have never fasted and would like to be able to also. I have a hard time just trying a cleanse/detox for a couple days. There are so many different ways to fast also.. One meal a day, days, weeks etc. I look forward to your book!!!
