The 40-Day Challenge

  • 8

My blog now has a place for the 40-Day Challenge, but what is it all about?

As the name already says, during 40 days we will be dedicating the first hours of the day for meditation on the Word of God.

We will separate ourselves in order to take care of our spiritual lives (this is why the challenge is called “Quarantine” in Portuguese, as we will be “isolating” ourselves for a few moments every day for a “spiritual treatment”). The 40-Day Challenge will bring us closer to God.

When we are rational (not emotional), we are able to detect any “infections” or spiritual weaknesses that could affect us, which many times are invisible to the “naked eye”.

When we take time to read and meditate on each word carefully, willing to discover “secrets” and “ hidden treasures”, they are revealed to us.

Dear friend, if you are not used to doing this, you have no idea how good it is to meditate on the Word of God.

However, there are some important “secrets” that you need to know (and put into practice) in order to make the most of the 40-Day Challenge. They are:

Secret #1: Wake up as early as you can. Ideally, you should wake up one hour earlier than usual.

Secret #2: Do not do any of your daily tasks without meditating on the Word of God first. If you start your day worried about the things you have to do, you will not make the most of your time with God.

Do your morning hygiene routine, find a quiet place, and be ready to listen to the voice of God.

Secret #3: Start meditating on the Gospel of Luke, which we will be talking about during the 40-Day Challenge. You should always meditate on the Word of God before you read the daily messages – Monday to Friday only.

A note from the translator:
Join us and invite your friends and family. Let this be our first challenge!
