THE 52 DAY CHALLENGE
Nehemiah 6:15-16, “So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days. When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.”
What could you do in 52 days?
Lose weight? Pay off a debt? Knock out all of the items on your “to-do” list?
52 days from today is December 2, 2014.
There’s much we could do in 52 days if we put our minds to it.
Nehemiah organized a group of people to rebuild a wall around a city, and in 52 days, in spite of the opposition and the size of the task, because of God’s help, he succeeded.
Aside from the personal things we could accomplish in 52 days, what are some things we could do for God’s kingdom in that many days?
Spend time in His Word? 1 chapter a day will get you through 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Titus. That’s 7 books in the Bible!
Prayer? 10 minutes of uninterrupted prayer will net you 8.6 hours over 52 days. Prayer is a crucial discipline of the faith we don’t exercise nearly enough.
Witness? Sharing Jesus with one person a day for 52 days, and them in turn sharing with their friends, and so on and so on, times 10, will result on over 52,000 people hearing about Christ in 52 days!
Beyond that, many of us have had the Lord speak to our hearts over the years to step out in faith and do that “thing”, you know what it is, for Him.
Maybe now is that time. Maybe you can make a difference in the next 52 days that people 2500 years from now will be sharing with their contemporaries.
If not now, why? If not now, when?
May it be said that satan trembled in fear and lost his self-confidence because of the work you did for God’s Kingdom over the next 52 days with God’s help!
Please click on the link below and listen to the entire message, “The 52 Day Challenge”, and then let’s pray and ask God what it is that He wants US to do for His glory and to strengthen His people.
I look forward to hearing the stories of those who accept the challenge and will step out to do something different over the next 52 days.
You are the right person in the right place and the right time to make a difference for God’s Kingdom!
