Great With God: Pocket Guide

Faith In Action Resources and Activities

Week 1: Commitment

With this program you will only get out of it what you put into it. I’m giving you a money back guarantee. This devotional plan will transform your life, like nothing you have ever tried before. The amount of transformation will be in direct proportion to the amount of time and energy you put into this. If you really want to enlarge the capacity of your heart, the capacity for soul and renew your mind, may I recommend the following?

3 levels of commitment. Regardless of which one you choose this is a daily devotional. It may seem repetitive as you do the same theme, same three pages, for seven straight days, but repetition is actually the key to transformation. It’s not about conquering the material. It’s about letting the material conquer you. Instead of being bored with reading the Scriptures over and over. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you insight. You’ll begin to discover more and more truth as you focus on the meaning of each sentence. God’s word is alive and powerful. You can never exhausted fresh new insight that comes from the Holy Spirit to you daily from meditation. Memorization and meditation will truly transformation your life? But what you don’t memorize you simply cannot utilize. Allow the repetition to provide a platform for you to begin to memorize your key verse and then remember we memorize to meditate. Repetition will bring growth and transformation.

Level  # 1.   Read the same three pages of each attribute over and over for one week. You don’t have to but his program was designed with you starting on Sunday afternoon. Afternoon specifically because I am assuming that Sunday morning you may very well be in church. You want all of the wisdom and insight that you have been accumulating throughout the week to propel you to give and I have something to give to the people you will be fellowship in with on Sunday morning. Plus Sunday afternoon you’ll have a chance to really spend some extra time getting acquainted with the new theme. Bare minimum commitment read the three pages each day of the week, pray the prayer wheel theme for each day, Saturday pray through the entire prayer wheel.

Level #2. The exact same commitment as level one with the addition of choosing a favorite bible verse for each week. The verse you choose becomes your key verse. The verses can come from any of the three sections of Scripture. The image of God the command of Christ the promise of God. I call it the kingly we discipline. In the book of Deuteronomy we learned that it was the king’s responsibility to write for himself a copy of the book of the law. The Kingly discipline is to write for yourself the Scriptures. It is also the first step towards the next step of memorizing.

Level # 3 Commit to DO the Faith in Action Assignment each week. Just Do it. This is easy to skip but don’t. Commit to God to attempt each one, even if it means getting creative to fulfill it.

Week 2: Honor Your Father

Keep it simple: just write a thank you. Avoid using a Hallmark card or anything like that. Share your own thoughts. Answer the question what benefit was your dad to you in your life. Think about provision think about protection. Think about wisdom think about what you admired. Think about if they ever signed you up for a team or tried to help you learn a skill, such as playing the piano, join the football team, signed you up for ballet. Did they ever throw you a party? Ever give you a gift, that was a game changer at the moment? Reflect and write about that.

Even if you’re having a hard time thinking of any good thing your father ever did for you. Identify the motivation that has come to your life because of the absence of your father’s encouragement. In such a case it might sound like this, “dad I love you and I want you to know that God has used you in my life to motivate me to become………. (and then you fill in the blank) This is designed to be a letter to honor and say thank you. So whatever you write make sure that is the impact.

It might be very appropriate to purchase a gift again keep it simple just send a gift card to Home Depot Starbucks or his favorite restaurant.

Getting a little more complex you could pamper him and getting him a massage, pedicure, or a pass at the golf course. Getting more extravagant why not send your dad on a vacation.

Have you ever considered sending him to a seminar that you thought he might enjoy help him get signed up for a class at the community center to learn that skill he always wanted to Learn.

The most extravagant gesture is to offer to help him fulfill his dream in anyway, shape or form.

If your father is not present in your life, we suggest you find a father figure:

  • Mentor
  • Grandparent
  • Father in Law
  • Father in law to your adult married son or daughter

Someone who invested in your life and offer this Honor to him

Week 3: Fast for a Breakthrough

I realize that many people this will be your first journey of fasting. What is fasting and why do we do it. Fasting in the most literal sense is fasting from food which means to not eat for a period of time. Most of the time, fasting does not refer to going without water. Do not go without water, however, when you fast do not eat food. A fast has physical benefits to your body as it give your digestive track a chance to rest. But it also has mental and spiritual benefits as well. Fasting can bring mentally clarity of thinking. Reducing sugar from your diet can actually allow your brain to work with greater clarity.

 But what are the Spiritual benefits of fasting? The idea behind fasting, can be summarized this way: we have a tendency to be too plugged into the world and too unplugged from God. Fasting is simply reversing this natural trend, it’s taking our best energy and plugging into God and taking our best energy to unplug from the world. The idea while you fast is not simply to just work harder through breakfast, lunch and dinner, but to actually replace your meal time with a time of seeking the Lord through prayer and scripture reading and also through volunteering to serve those in need.

There are several different fasts listed as assignments for faith in action throughout these 52 weeks. This one is a 24 hour fast. Which means that you would eat dinner tonight, stop eating including no snacks and then you would not eat again until dinner the following night? Once again, might I remind you that your only beverage water.

Probably the most important thing to consider when doing any fasting is to get your reasons in order. You need to answer the question, “why am I fasting.” Isaiah 58 gives you a lot of biblical reason to fast. James chapter 5 gives us an additional reason to fast that is fasting adds fervency to our prayers. God answers fervent prayer. Please understand that some breakthroughs in your spiritual journey will only happen when you fast. You have God Almighty as your father and he has told you to ask in faith. Fasting can help you understand the purposes of God. You’ll get insight into what he is doing in the world. Ask him for insight to what he’s doing. And then pray that his kingdom would come. Fast for a spiritual breakthrough. The work that God wants done is what we want to identify and then through faith ask boldly for God to accomplish his kingdom work with fervency in our prayers through fasting.

Fasting is about asking for insight just as much as it is asking for power. When you’re fasting you are acknowledging that you are weak and incapable on your own. It’s a simple acknowledgment that you need God, that you’re desperate for God and that you acknowledge that the only way things are going to change is because of God. It is a huge acknowledgment that you were not depending on your own strength or your own wisdom but you are surrendering to God.

Thank you for fasting. Your sacrifice is pleasing to God.
