These are game-changing moments when a shift takes place and things begin to go your way. One word from God can shift the momentum forever.
I declare that the momentum has shifted. We are now on a comeback mode. Never mess with a person making a comeback. They are dangerous. They are violent. They had a brush with death and annihilation.
HOW TO MAKE A COMEBACK FROM A SETBACK
Finishing strong is impossible without divine assistance. Let God use your mistakes.
A setback can be because of our mistakes, failures and bad choices. Choices have consequences. We are not immune from bad choices and bad consequences. That is why we all need to understand that we can still finish strong and make a comeback from a setback.
WHAT IS FASTING?
Jonah 3:3-10: Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. 4 Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” 5 The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. 6 When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh:
“By the decree of the king and his nobles, Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” 10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened.
1. Abstinence from foods and pleasures of the flesh to focus on God in word, prayer and consecration. Feeding the spirit with not bread alone but with every word that comes from the mouth of God (Matt 4:4). The motive is to accept the divine invitation to dine with our master in fellowship and intimacy.
2. A hunger for God. It is when we make God our uttermost desire and obsession.
That is why fasting MUST have prayer, reading, listening, and focusing on God’s word with it.
