The Kind of Fast He's After

Written by Harold Herring.

Have you ever read a scripture. . .where you immediate response was “Wow?”

Isaiah 58:6-9 in the Message Bible says:

“This is the kind of fast day I'm after: to break the chains of injustice, get rid of exploitation in the workplace, free the oppressed, cancel debts.  What I'm interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families. Do this and the lights will turn on, and your lives will turn around at once.  Your righteousness will pave your way.  The God of glory will secure your passage.  Then when you pray, God will answer.  You'll call out for help and I'll say, 'Here I am.'”

Do yourself a big favor and read those verses at least two more times before proceeding to the rest of this blog.

Truthfully, I’ve read Isaiah 58:6-9 numerous times in other translations but never in the Message Bible until recently.

Truthfully, there is only one person that you ever need to worry about pleasing. . .because if He’s happy and well pleased, you can find contentment in life.

What does well-pleasing to God really mean. . .

3 Characteristics Needed For Immediate Manifestation

Written by Harold Herring.

As I listen to your phone messages, read your letters and emails, God allows me to feel your hurts and see your hopes for a better tomorrow.

Some of you have wondered either on paper or in your heart when the promises of God will be manifested in your life.

I know that delay tactics are a favorite deception of the enemy because he seeks to trip us up with doubt.  As I was praying for you this morning, the Lord led me to the story of Simeon found in Luke 2:25-32.

And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.”
