Question: “What does the Bible say about consecration?”
Answer: In the Bible the word consecration means “the separation of oneself from things that are unclean, especially anything that would contaminate one’s relationship with a perfect God.” Consecration also carries the connotation of sanctification, holiness, or purity (Got Questions? Org)
16 Days of Consecration
— began on August 25, 2015
Aim of Consecration: To commit myself to be used by God for His purpose.
» Limit idle conversations and behaviours as much as possible
» Do not engage in any lustful talk or focus on the thoughts
» Give every situation to God (casting my cares on Him)
» Do not start a relationship
» Spend more time reading and praying
» Focus on anything God lays on my spirit and instructs me to do
I’ve been committing spiritual adultery. I am married to God but leave Him for men, seeking their love and companionship. I want to be faithful to God. I’ve made this proposal in my heart to forgo relationships. I wanted to do a year, initially, but that’s stretching it as I don’t want to start something I cannot fully commit to. So I dropped it to 3 months, and then lowered it to 16 days where I know that full commitment (even though it may be challenging) is possible. The idea came to document each day, ending the day with a reflection. The reason for this documentation is to hopefully encourage others to make such a sacrifice to God. I hope someone will be blessed as this is not to glorify myself but to give God all the glory in this time.
