“Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’” (Isaiah 58:8-9 NKJV)
I love Isaiah 58. It is one of my favorite passages of scripture, filled with promises from God and instruction to us for a sincere heart of fasting before the Lord.
In verses 1-7 begins instruction on the fast, which expresses the “Then Key” to obtaining the Promises. It expresses the fast God has chosen, which in short is to die to self; laying down one’s own life for others; counting the lowest, most destitute above self; taking up our cross of self-denial to follow Jesus.
And what are the promises we can unlock and possess with these keys?
Then keys unlock:
🗝 your light which breaks forth like the morning.
🗝 your healing, springing forth speedily.
🗝 your Righteousness, going before you;
🗝 The glory of the LORD as your rear guard.
🗝 you shall call, and the LORD will answer;
🗝 you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
The chapter is full of keys of selfless fasting that gains the keys to unlock the BLESSings of abundant life. Read it often. Practice it with every breath. And watch in scripture for other Kingdom keys.
