16 Days of Consecration

Question: “What does the Bible say about consecration?”
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.
