Wednesday:
Hebrews 13: 8-9

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them.”

Find an electronic device you have access to and listen to the song “Worthy of Your Name” by Passion. Dwell in the idea that Jesus has always been, and forever will be the same.

1) How has God revealed himself to you lately?
2) When is a time in your life when you felt His presence the
most?
3) Moving forward, how are you going to dive deeper into
understanding Him?

Thursday:

Walking in Christ

As you begin your selah time with the Lord, open with prayer. Then, access an electronic device and listen to the song “Oceans” by Hillsong United, and focus on what He is trying to tell you right now.

Psalms 23

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. ​He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.​ He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. ​Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me​; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

1) After listening and reading, what common theme can you
correlate between the song and the passage?

2) Look at the two underlined portions of the passage and compare these two images that David is portraying. How has God led you through a “green pasture” or beside “still waters” in your lifetime? Think of a specific time that you can connect to this image.

3) How has God led you through a tough season of life that really felt like “the valley of the shadow of death”?

4) As you finish your time with the Lord, reflect on these ideas and how God might be growing your faith in Him through a circumstance you are in right now. Recognize that there are always going to be seasons of highs and lows in your walk, but God is leading you through those times with a purpose to prosper and grow you in faith and love.

Friday:

Walking in Christ

Today, I want you to find your Bible and read the passage on your own to begin your selah time. Turn to Luke 15: 1-7 and begin reading the Parable of the Lost Sheep.

Once you have finished, access an electronic device and listen to the song “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury.

1) After reading and listening, what effect does this have on
your perception of God’s love for us?

2) I want you to take a moment to be vulnerable with yourself, and think back to a time when you were lost and felt far away from God. Maybe this is a feeling that you have about your walk with Christ right now.

3) Listen to “Reckless Love” again. This time I want you to focus on the bridge of the song that says, “There’s no shadow you won’t light up, mountain you won’t climb up, coming after me. No wall you won’t kick down, lie you won’t tear down, coming after me.”

4) Whether this is a place you have been in your past, or where you are in your walk right now, spend the rest of your time with God listening to His voice and reflecting on how much He loves you. Think about what He might be trying to tell you in your walk today.

Saturday:

Walking in Christ

As you begin, get out your Bible and turn to Daniel 3. Begin reading the story about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego being thrown into the pit of fire. We will be focusing on Daniel 3 verses 8-28.

When you are finished, access an electronic device and listen to the song “Another in the Fire” by Hillsong United.

1) Put yourself in the shoes of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Would you have enough faith to refuse the command from Nebuchadnezzar after being threatened with a pit of fire?

2) How does this story affect your perspective of our God from
the way His power was displayed in the fire?
3) Has there ever been a time in your life that felt like you
were in the middle of a wildfire? If so, what was it?

4) Reflect on how God grew your faith in Him in that season of your life. If you’ve never felt a time like this, reflect on how you will face trials in your life to come, understanding God’s power in this new light.

Monday:

Walking in Christ

As you begin your selah time, imagine yourself amongst the disciples following Jesus’ resurrection. We will be reading about Jesus meeting with his disciples one last time before ascending into heaven.

Find your Bible, and begin reading Luke 24: 36-49.

When you are finished reading, access an electronic device and listen to the song “Behold the Lamb” by Passion.

1) As you read verses 36-43, imagining yourself amongst the disciples, would you be one of the ones in disbelief of what had happened to Jesus?

2) How would you respond to seeing the wounds on his hands and
feet?
3) In what ways have you become desensitized to the gospel story
in your lifetime? How will you strive to regain your focus in
understanding the cost Jesus paid for our lives?

4) As you finish your selah time with the Lord, spend some intentional time reflecting on the power of the gospel story. Decide right now how you are going to take the charge Jesus gave to his disciples, sharing that story with “all the nations”.

Tuesday:

Walking in Christ

As you begin your selah time, start with a prayer. I want you to call out God’s name today and personally invite Him to speak life into your study time with Him. Find your Bible and read Isaiah 6: 1-8.

When you are finished, access an electronic device and listen to the song “Follow You Anywhere” by Passion.

1) In the shoes of Isaiah, how would you go forward in your life
after receiving a vision like this?
2) What aspects of your life do you feel God calling you to a
mission or responsibility that you don’t feel qualified to take
on? What is causing you to feel unqualified or not good enough?

3) As you finish your selah time, reflect and spend time talking with God about what he might be calling you to, and furthermore, address the feelings you have about the calling. Be honest with Him about your feelings and He will fulfill the desires of your heart.
