"And said to them, “Hear me, Levites! Now consecrate yourselves, and consecrate the house of the Lord, the God of your fathers, and carry out the filth from the Holy Place" (2 Chronicles 29:5, ESV).
Today we begin our 21 Days of Dedication to the Lord to start off 2021 in the right way! In doing so, I want to highly, highly recommend you listen to this morning's message. (It is available on all platforms!) The message encapsulated why we are doing this dedication to the Lord; it explained what it is. As we dedicate ourselves fully to Him, we are sowing the RIGHT seeds to reap the RIGHT harvest in 2021! We are dedicating ourselves to Him to see breakthrough in our lives. One of the main themes of this dedication is that the Lord wants us to repair our hearts. He wants us to take the rubbish, the gunk of 2020, past pains, past hurts, past traumas and past sins and CARRY THEM out of our hearts! He has empowered us to do so.
For tonight, re-read 2 Chronicles 29:1-7 and pray about how you are going to do that in your life. Pray about what it will look like and what He is calling you to do. As we engage in this priestly duty of carrying out filth from our hearts, He will continue to prepare our hearts for what He is doing and WILL DO in 2021. This is the best way to start the year; we hope and pray you join us!
