The Fasts That The Lord Requires

The Lord is creating a deeper fast in us, not by what we give up, but by sowing what He has given to us.


Fasts Required

Zech 7:9-10, Zech 8:16-17

Show mercy and compassion to your brother, oppress not, do not imagine evil in your heart, speak truth, love truth and peace.

Isa 58:6-7, 9-10, 13

Loose the bands of wickedness, undo heavy burdens, break every yoke. Deal bread to the hungry, bring the poor into your house, cover the naked. Speak no flattery or fraud, satisfy the afflicted soul. Honor the Lord, don’t do your own way, don’t speak your own words.

Rewards Promised

Zech 7:9-10, Zech 8:16-17

Your seed shall prosper, the ground will give her increase and heaven her dew.

Isa 58:8-9, 11-12, 14

Your light will break forth, your health will spring forth, the glory of the Lord will be your rereward (rearguard) or: the glory of the Lord will gather you up.

The Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy your soul in drought, you shall be like a spring whose water do not fail.

You will build the old waste places and raise the foundations of many generations. You will delight yourself in the Lord and ride upon the high places of the earth.
