Questions for Contemplation — Courage: Sun Stand StillPosted: November 21, 2013
Praying Unprecedented (For You) Prayers
Take the next step in your prayer life. Step One. Regularly ask God to do for you what you’ve already seen him do in your life. Step Two: Regularly ask God to do for you what you’ve already seen him do in other people’s lives. Step Three: Regularly ask God to do for you what you’ve never seen him do for anyone—but have heard. Step Four: Regularly ask God to do for you things you’ve never seen or heard of before. Nothing is impossible with God.
Where are you in your prayer journey? What’s the next level for you?
Living an Unprecedented (For You) Life
In what area of your life are you deliberately and knowingly disobeying the Lord? Are you planning on continuing that disobedience? Why? In what area of your life are you accidentally and unknowingly disobeying the Lord? Hint: Ask God to reveal these areas, otherwise you won’t know. Have you like Joshua determined to obey everything the Lord commands to the best of your knowledge and to the best of you ability? If so, when? If not, why not?
What are you afraid of? The enemy? Commitment? Rejection? What fears are holding you back from pursuing the life God is calling you to live?
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be terrified for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
