Saturday, 5th September 2020: Get prepared for tomorrow!

Scripture Reading: Mark 9:29. And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
Reflections: The disciples of Jesus could not cast the dumb spirit out of the boy. They looked defeated.  This tide was however turned round  when Jesus arrived on the scene. With a single command He drove the demon out and set the boy free. Jesus got the disciples to understand that they failed in their attempt to get the demon out because they had not fasted and prayed. He was not talking about on the spot fasting to deal with the problem but rather having cultivated a lifestyle of fasting before hand which would have given them a reservoir  of power and authority to deal with issues that arises impromptu.   From this, we can understand that personal building up of your spirit through regular or periodic fasting prepares you to overcome challenges that may confront you in the future. By implication, you will be defeated in life if you don’t prepare spiritually for tomorrow.  Always get prepared for your tomorrow!
Prayer: Lord, help me get prepared for each ‘tomorrow’ of my life. Enable me build up my own fasting, prayer, bible study, praise and worship life.
Confession: I am always prepared for tomorrow. I have personal schedules to fast, pray, praise and worship God on my own which I don’t compromise.
