Bishop David Oyedepo is a Nigerian preacher, Christian author, businessman, architect and the founder and presiding Bishop of the megachurch Faith Tabernacle in Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria, and Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners’ Chapel International.
Bishop David Abioye said “fasting is fastening your flesh to fatten your spirit”. The spirit gets “fattened” as time is spent ingesting the word of God. A “fattened” spirit is an empowered spirit. It is natural for the flesh to be weak in fasting especially for rookies in this spiritual adventure. When the flesh is ‘protesting’, the spirit is rejoicing provided it is constantly fed as the fasting continues.
