Day 40 – Set Apart.

Romans 1:1
Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God—

Today is such a special day in so many ways. It’s a special day because God is faithful and stands by His promises. When we seem to fall short, lose our way, let others down, make a mess, make it all about us, run out of strength, and on and on and on, God remains constant, strong, unshakable and completely in control!

Because He is, we are able to have life and have purpose. Because He is, we are able to exist. Because He is, we have been set apart. Because He is, our lives can point others to Him. Because He is, we can be what He’s called us to be. Because He is, He will always receive the honor and glory.

So choose to be set apart. Be the light and salt of this world – your world.

Thank you taking this 40 Days of Prayer Challenge. I pray that you’ve been encouraged over these last several weeks, and that you’ve learned to seek God through prayer daily. Remember, when you change the way you pray, everything will begin to change.

I’ve always believed and said that it’s so easy to begin something – all of us do it – but it’s another thing to finish what you’ve started. You’ve finished, and you’ve finished strong.

Keep prayer at the center of your life, and remember to seek God on everything.

May The Lord bless you and your loved ones, the work of your hands, every place your foot walks, and your hopes and dreams.


Day 39 – All In.

Zechariah‬ ‭4‬:‭10‬ NLT
Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand…

If you are going to be all in, be all in. Stop trying to figure out what the end is going to look like. Stop worrying about how things will unfold all along the process. Don’t allow the end result to pull all of your attention and distract you from the here and now. Don’t get so caught up in trying to make it all about the big finish that you miss out on the beauty of the beginning. Every great journey begins with a single first step. A forward step. It’s a starting point. And it might just be a small one. But that’s ok, because if God is in it, he can take a single ordinary step and turn it into an extraordinary journey – an unforgettable adventure. Pray and invite Him to be a part of it, to bless it, to sustain it, to provide for it, to protect it, to multiply it, and ultimately to be glorified through it all. Then and only then will you be all in. It’s just better that way.

Can I help you pray for something as we close out this prayer challenge?
