It’s time for a new 5-Day Worship Challenge!
This past year I’ve been extremely inspired and motivated by Beth Moore’s book, Believing God. (I highly encourage everyone to buy and read it!) In her book, Beth shares “a five-statement pledge of faith that encompasses virtually everything we’re challenged to believe.” Those five statements are:
God is who He says He is.
God can do what He says He can do.
I am who God says I am.
I can do all things through Christ.
God’s Word is alive and active in me.
For this worship challenge, let’s take these 5 statements and use them to inspire our worship! Take each statement and dig into it. Invite the Holy Spirit to speak into your soul what each of these really says about God and your relationship with Him. And then respond to all He reveals to you in worship!
There are so many verses that we could use for each of these statements! But here are few to get you started. Meditate on these and others you find in preparation for your worship:
I am who God says I am. – “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us” (Ephesians 1:3-8). Also Romans 8:29-31.
God’s Word is alive and active in me. “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). Also Romans 10:17 and 1 Thessalonians 2:13.
I’m really looking forward to this challenge. I think I’ll focus on just one of these statements each of the five days, so I can give each of them the attention I want – without feeling the rush to move on. Think through how you feel your worship could best benefit from the exercise.
Let me know how it goes! Have a great worship week!
NOTE: While you’re at it, why not encourage your small group or Bible study to take this challenge with you! Share the impact of the challenge with one another.
