Learning Objective:

Ignite your faith to believe and be free. Commit to specific behaviors that support your choice for Freedom in Christ including a negativity detox.

Dear Lord,

You alone can free us from sin, selfishness, past pain, regret, envy, resentment, suspicion, taking offense…ALL of it that creates our yoke of slavery in life…we want to be FREE to grab ahold of all that you have already grabbed ahold of us for on this journey of life. Forgive us for our lack of belief. For giving more authority to the shiny objects in the world than to the POWER of your RISEN SPIRIT that courses through our entire being. IGNITE our desire and ability to resurrect who we are in the FREEDOM you died to give us. Give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to respond this week to your voice alone and along with it the ability to respond to it quicker today than yesterday.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the negative impact of jealous & suspicious behavior in your life.
  • Learn how to erase & replace the negative thoughts that fuel insecurity.

Dear Lord,

HELP! I’m drowning in the deep waters of jealousy, envy and suspicion. Too often I find myself gripping ahold of the spear of jealousy that not only pierces my own heart but is targeted at other people around me. Override my suspicious mind that creates story through mind-reading and fortune telling. Remind my mind of what my soul always knows: I am enough in and through you. You were not confined by status. Help me to be free from comparisons and envy that rob my life of the fullness of joy your died to give me. Fashion my heart after yours and set me free from being self- absorbed. I am YOUR ambassador and you are making YOUR appeal through me…have your way with me in spite of myself. No need for envy and comparisons. Help me to grip ahold of the sword of the Spirit and cut off jealousy by robbing it of my time and attention and filling my mind with your WORD.

Dear Lord,

Grant me the faith of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego. Be my confidence as I go out into a world that is filled with idols of wood, gold, silver and clay. Help me resist the statues of the world that promise meaning and significance and yet suck the life right out of me, highjacking my identity and value, leaving me empty handed, longing for more. Help me to be quicker today than yesterday to run back to you when I fall prey to the lions of pride, selfishness and insecurity. Walk with me through the fire so that I don’t get burned up by the heat of my emotions when I don’t get what I want or think I deserve. Close the mouths of the lions that prowl around me trying to devour my sense of worth and value. I lack nothing in you. Resurrect a Daniel faith within me today moving forward so that  I believe IN, rely ON and TRUST in you alone more today than yesterday. Protect me from compliments and complaints that my heart would stay grounded in the mission for which it beats: to love and be loved by you, to declare to the world that you are the living God, enduring and steadfast forever! (Daniel 6:26).

Dear Lord,

Too often I sit on the Mercy seat and cast stones at myself and others. How can I give out what I have not experienced within my own relationship with you? Help me to feel your Mercy and Love more today than yesterday. Increase my desire to offer the kind of mercy you offered to the 120,000 people in Nineveh. Ignite within my heart the ability to rejoice in my brother’s and sister’s experience of your love and mercy more today than yesterday. Too often I am Jonah, angry and resentful that you are showing mercy to someone I don’t feel deserves it. “Let He who is without sin cast the first stone.”  Jesus, John 8:7.
