21 Days of Consecration

Day 1: Read Psalm 34; Jeremiah 9:23-24; and Zechariah 4:6. Praise God for his faithfulness. Praise God for his strength. Praise God for his steadfast love and redeeming love. Then commit yourself to the LORD. Be willing to lay down your selfish efforts and desires, and invite the Holy Spirit to lead. Continue to invite the spirit of adoption as we continue to receive new believers, new church plants, and new congregations.

Day 2: Read Nehemiah 6. Pray on behalf of Legacy and other reformation leaders that we would not shrink back because of threats or intimidation. Specifically ask God to strengthen them. Pray for true renewal and revival to come to Tampa Bay without further delay. Pray that all glory will be given to God for the victory belongs to him.

Day 3: Read Hebrews 11:6; Psalm 119:9-11; Psalm 105:4; Psalm 27:8; and Jeremiah 29:13. As a child of God, be obedient to the Word and seek His face. The LORD promises to be found. Let us also ask him to give the Church, and specifically our local congregation, a love for his Word so that we may not stray.

Day 4: Read James 4:1-10; Isaiah 66:1-2; 2 Chronicles 7:14; John 17:20-26. In true reverence for the LORD, we ask that you would physically get on your knees this day. Humble yourself before the LORD and on behalf of Legacy. Repent of our pride and self-sufficient ways. Be bold and ask the Holy Spirit to send a wave of repentance to come over all of us.

Day 5: Read John 14:1-7. Seek the LORD. Ask him to show you who He is, so that you may know him more intimately from this day forward. Desire in your heart to be intimate with the LORD. Ask him to reveal to you something new about verse six.

Day 6: Read Exodus 20:8-11. Ask the LORD to reveal to you the ways in which you do not REST in Him. Confess your sin. Spend the day delighting in the LORD. Remember who God is. Remember what He has done for you and thank him. This is his rest:to delight and trust in him . . . and when you do, he’ll find a resting place in you!

Day 7: Read Psalm 119:1-16 and Deuteronomy 6:4-9. In your prayers today, simply love the LORD. Then keep his Word in front of you this day. Declare your obedience and allegiance to him.

Day 8: Read Revelation 3:14-22. Invite the Holy Spirit to show you afresh the ways in which Legacy is like the Church in Laodicea. Confess our corporate sins to the LORD. Be willing to take the time to confess even the smallest ways in which we grieve him. Declare the works he has done among us and honor him for them.

Day 9: Meditate on Psalm 119:97-104 and cry out to the LORD for a love of his Word.

Day 10: Read James 1:22-25, Psalm 119:11; Psalm 119:72; and Luke 1:38. Spend time with the LORD rejoicing in his Word. Thank him for revealing his guidance through his Word. Confess your sin out loud to the LORD. Confess to him the ways in which you do not obey his Word. . . then submit to the LORD’s will for your life. Mary modeled a good response for us. “Let it be with me according to your Word.”

Day 11: Read Matthew 11:28-30. This day should be treated as a National holiday where all work is set aside. Let’s choose to REST in Him, for He is Good. He is the one who calls us to rest. Give the LORD your burdens. Offer them up to him. In addition, remember the LORD wants all of you-including your burdens.

Day 12: Read Nehemiah 1. Spend time with God acknowledging who he is. Seek him with all your heart and confess our corporate sins. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any unconfessed sin. If you cannot physically weep over the sins, ask the LORD for a spirit of repentance to fall upon you and his corporate body.

Day 13: Read Nehemiah 5:1-13 and Leviticus 25:18-28. Seek the LORD for new strategies concerning church property. Pray for its release and a time of Jubilee.

Day 14: Read Nehemiah 4. This day pray for wisdom and understanding so that Legacy and other reformation leaders will not be immobilized by attacks from the enemy (mocking, nay-sayers, fear, confusion, lies, restricted funds, etc…) Let us also truly commit our work to the LORD and pray unceasingly for his work to be accomplished through us. Spend time praising the LORD and be encouraged. Ask the LORD to remind his people to be properly dressed for the battle at hand; and above all, to be clothed with love.

Day 15: Read Jeremiah 33:3; Isaiah 42:5-9; and Isaiah 55. Call to the LORD and ask him to reveal to you his desires. Give him praise for all that he has done, and for that which he is about to do. Ask him for strength to lay down your pride so that you may give him all the glory. Cry out for his Word and invite the Holy Spirit to reveal the ways in which you do not hunger and thirst for him alone.

Day 16: Read Nehemiah 8 and 9. Thank the LORD for his faithfulness to you. Thank him also for his provision in connecting you to other like-minded individuals who desire to obey the LORD. Cry out for understanding concerning these scriptures-Nehemiah 8 and 9. What is the LORD speaking to us today concerning our corporate celebrations? How should we seek him as a corporate body of Believers?

Day 17: Read Nehemiah 9:38 and Nehemiah 10. Seek the LORD and spend time delighting in him. Be sure to also inquire of the LORD concerning his desire to be our Bridegroom. What does that really mean for us to be his Bride? Ask him to reveal the ways in which you have not kept your vows to him. What pledges, or other oaths, to the LORD have you not fully walked-in. Surrender these anew.

Day 18: Read Nehemiah 12:27-47 and Nehemiah 13. Seek God’s wisdom regarding how we may glorify God in our efforts to re-align this part of the body with Christ as the Head, and how we may dedicate our work in a pleasing manner to him.

Day 19: Read 2 Chronicles 29:1-11; Ezekiel 44:15; Jeremiah 33:22; and 1 Peter 2:9. In prayer today, inquire of the LORD what it means to minister to him. Affirm your faith that Jesus Christ is the head of the Church. Resubmit yourself to his complete authority. Choose to lay down any desire to serve man, and choose anew to serve the LORD alone. According to Psalm 132:3-5, minister to the Lord.

Day 20: Read Joshua 3. Ask the LORD for wisdom and understanding. Ask him to show you the significance of the priest’s role. More specifically, why did he desire for the priests to go first? What does entering the water really mean? How are the priests to remain at rest while the people cross over? What role does the LORD desire of you during this time of crossing over? Should the Lord wake you this night, read Psalm 134:1-2; Psalm 42:8

Day 21: Read Joshua 3:5; John 17:17; Ephesians 5:25–27; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; John 3:25-30. Pray that God would sanctify the Citywide Church by his Word. Offer to the LORD your desires so that the bride would be washed anew. Ask God for this process of sanctification to continue. Then rejoice in it, while knowing and being known of Him.
