14 Day Fast Daily Devotional
Isaiah 58:6- “Is this not the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? (7) Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? (8) Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.”
I believe, according to Your Word, that he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. I believe in the power of your Word and the power of Your chosen fast. Guide us as we consecrate ourselves before You. I thank You that burdens are removed and every yoke that has been erected against us is destroyed during this time of fasting. Healing is released to us. Miracles are released to us. Blessings and favor are released to us. Restoration is here for us and our families. Our hearing is sharpened and our vision is clear. Lord, we’re open to receive divine deliverance, in Jesus name.
Romans 12:2- “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”
Create in us a clean heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within us, O God. We place on us the helmet of salvation. We renew our minds with the Word of God daily. We have the mind of Christ. Our mindsets are programmed with the Word of God and not the world’s system. We will no longer think or speak negative thoughts. We only repeat what You say about us. Our thinking lines up with the agenda of the kingdom of heaven. Our minds are clear, sharp and chemically balanced. We fix our attention on You. Change us from the inside out and bring out Your best in us.
Philippians 3:13- “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, (14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Lord, we make the choice to walk by faith and not by sight. We shout with a voice of triumph because You are the God who makes all things new. Old things have passed away so we let the past GO. Regret and frustration is a thing of the past. Lack and failure is a thing of the past. Old mindsets and negative thought patterns are GONE. We reach forward into our future because we know that Your plan is to give us a future and a hope. We declare that we are walking in new beginnings and treading on new territories. We thank you for birthing new ideas and giving us fresh revelation with TOTAL VICTORY in 2017.

Father, we know that You go into action when we come together in agreement. We unleash the power of agreement as we vow to walk in unity and harmony. We let go of all bitterness, resentment, envy and strife. Mark 11:25 says, “And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive your trespasses. So, Lord, we forgive and release all who have wronged or hurt us in any way. We are confident that You will not leave us without support as we walk out the process of forgiveness. From this day forward, we purpose to walk in love and to live in agreement. You are our deliverer and we trust that You will perform Your Word on our behalf.

Wives submit to their husbands and help set the tone of prayer, praise and worship in the home. Our children are for signs and wonders and they walk in obedience. We come together and train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Father, empower the single men and women of God to wait on you as you fulfill Your plan for their lives.
