“I am sick, I have not been able to keep anything in stomach for the last three days, what shall I do?” I said talking to my two sisters one morning.
“Do you think The Master is calling her to a fast?
One asked to the other.
“What?! What in the world are you talking about? Fasts went out with the century, what is the matter with you all?” I said in utter unbelief.
“Oh no,” said the most vivacious of the two, “fasting is Scriptural, I haven’t fasted yet and I don’t know much about it, but I know it is Scriptural. I think so and so has a book about it. Let’s find out about it.”
I remember that the other sister did not say much that day. They both promised to secure that book for me and I went home.
The next day, I got up and fixed me a cup of coffee and then went back to bed, to drink my coffee and read my Bible.
I was reading in the book of Mark chapter 9, and I came to verse 29 that reads, “And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing,but by prayer and fasting.” And I said,
“Master, are you telling me to fast?”
For an answer, I got out of bed, I made haste to the kitchen sink and dumped my coffee. And thus, for the first time in my life, I began a fast. End of quote.

Well? It is not a matter of whatever I do works or not. Is a matter of Your decreed order in whatever we do or don’t do?
