Have you been fasting for breakthrough? If you've been struggling through this fast, be encouraged in this: your fast isn't what wins breakthrough. Victory is a gift given by the Father through Jesus. You can't earn that victory, but you can receive it with thanks. So why fast for breakthrough? Fasting doesn't win any extra points with God (his love for you is already eternal!) or "help him" defeat the enemies of your soul (his victory over Satan is already complete!) But it does help you recognize your need for God—for his grace, for his love, and for the victory he won on the cross. Stand in faith on that victory today.
