When God chooses to hear us that means He has chosen to answer us.
“and My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 CHRONICLES 7:14
If you had in mind to fast for a few days before stepping into the New Year, be encouraged. The denial of food, things that we like, crave or desire; things that aren’t good for our body, what we watch or how we spend our time; all of these can be channelized divinely if we choose to discipline ourselves through fasting, studying the Word and praying.
“The length of our fast is not important. What does matter is entering a fast with an openness to hearing what God has to say.” Bill Bright
