It’s a new month, which means, it’s WORSHIP CHALLENGE TIME!! Here we go!
On each of your 5 days, pick one name or characteristic of God that you feel like you already experience and connect with closely, and then write out how that aspect of God has already impacted your life. Be specific. Then pray and ask God if there are other ways or other areas of your life that you need to be trusting Him for that aspect more. By the end of the week you should have five of these.
Also on each day, pick one name or characteristic of God that you don’t feel like you particularly connect with. It could be something that you think you need to be reminded of, understand better, or even something that you actually struggle to grasp or trust about God. Then pray and ask Him to show you how He might want you to trust or relate to that aspect of Him in your life. Again, write it out and be specific. By the end of the week, you should also have 5 of these.
Spend time each day thanking and worshiping God for each name/characteristic that you’ve chosen up to that point in the week. Write them down so you can see and meditate on them throughout your day. The goal is to grow in the knowledge of God and allow who He is to have a greater impact in our lives and our worship!
Don’t rush any of this. If you need to, spend time looking over the list of Names, Titles, and Descriptions of God on this site, and ask Him to lead you to the specific ones He wants you to focus on each day. Some may already come to mind as you read this. Spend time meditating on the characteristics that you choose and worshiping God for these truths about who He is. To take it a step further, search where those names/characteristics of God are used in the Bible so you can allow His word to further fill and confirm these truths about God in your heart and mind.
‘I love You, O LORD, my strength.’ The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation,
my stronghold. . . . The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock;
And exalted be the God of my salvation
(Psalm 18:1c-2, 46).
Question: What are some of the names or characteristics of God that you chose? How has this challenge impacted your week? I look forward to hearing from you!
Also, why not encourage your small group or Bible study to take this challenge with you! And share the impact of the challenge with one another.
