God-Soaked World Bible Guide – Day 41
April 15, 2017
Saturday, April 15 – Selah (Review)
Taking our cue from the Psalms’ interlude moments of rest and meditation, we are practicing a weekly pause in our Bible guide. Today, our 40 Days of Faith is over.
How has this season gone for you?
Take some time to think about or write down anything you have learned or that has gone well. Particularly pay attention to any prayers God may have answered for you or others, or any ways you have experienced God as more personal, more communicative, or more real and present to you. Take some time to thank God.
Afterwards, notice or write down any disappointments you have as this season comes to a close. Are there unanswered prayers or unfulfilled expectations you need to come to terms with, at least for now. Be honest with yourself and God about those.
Finally, in the upcoming Easter season, what practices or habits from the 40 Days would you like to continue? Consider personal prayers and spiritual exercises, praying for your six, Bible reading, or participating deeply in spiritual community. Which of those would you like to continue in the weeks to come, and how? Are there any new spiritual practices or things you’d like to try or to commit to in the weeks to come? Ask God for leading or vision in the season to come.
