Day 31 - Stop & Start

    02.07.18 | by 40 Day Team

    Warm Up
    Pray: “Dear Lord, I am your follower. Help me to live an unselfish lifestyle in a culture where selfishness is not only normal but encouraged! I want to daily follow You. Confirm, in my heart, that if I live this way, I will find true life. Help me prioritize my soul above everything and anything else. Give me confidence to never be ashamed of You or Your word.”

    Round 1
    Read Luke 9:23-26. Write out verse 23.

    Round 2
    Pray and ask God to show you one thing that you ARE doing now that you need to STOP doing. It might not be anything hideous but just something that has become a distraction or an obstacle. Write down that one thing. Remember that your goal is not trying to do less wrong things to win God over. Thank God for loving you and empowering you to live as His child, reflecting who He is.

    Round 3
    Pray and ask God to show you one thing that you are NOT doing now that you need to START doing. It might not be anything amazing but just something simple that could help you grow in your faith. Write down that one thing. Remember that your goal is not trying to do more right things to win God over. Thank God for loving you and empowering you to live as His child, reflecting who He is.

    Burnout
    Today, focus on fasting something out of a desire to lock down your commitment to STOP one thing and START another. Consider fasting a meal, or social media, or television. Take some extra time today to read Luke chapter 9.
