“He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights.”
Someone once said that it is not a shame to fail to reach a dream, but rather to fail to even have a dream. Many dream to be free — free from issues, habits and lifestyles that do not glorify Christ and which the enemy uses to steal our peace, health, finances and future. For some, this dream has become an impossibility and abandoned themselves to a life of failure, defeat and living out of unbiblical mindsets and wrong beliefs.
With this 40-day devotional we offer you a journey to embrace the freedom that we have in Christ Jesus. We encourage you to be intentional about receiving God’s best for you. There is a great future of being the you that Christ envisioned on the cross. Remember, it is God’s desire for you to succeed in every area of your life. He has designed you for that; He has dreams about you and for you.
We have to accept responsibility for the choices that we make. Hosea 8:7 is a warning — “They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind”.
Together we want to say NO to the fruit and effect of wrong mindsets and choices and through Christ-centered beliefs, reap the fruit and rewards of His life and victories. That is the aim of this 40-day journey - to find and start living from His well of life.

Strong faith always sees a way forward. Does your experience create your identity, or does your identity create your experience? In week five of 40 Days to Breakthrough we look at what it means to have faith that is unwavering, regardless of the storms that we encounter.
Developing your faith
Romas 12:3 - "Think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you".
Seeing and hearing with faith
Hebrews 4:14 - "But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil".
Gird the loins of your mind
Philippians 4:6-7 - "Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus".
Releasing faith towards the battle
Ephesians 6:12 - "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places".
Faith that forms you
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price...".
Faith's final impact
Ephesians 2:8 - "You are saved by faith alone".
Prayer steps for
Let's pray: Holy spirit, show me the root cause for why I doubt in who You say You are and who You say I am.
As Holy Spirit shows you these roots or mindsets, write them down.
Now that you have identified the roots or mindsets, pray this prayer: "Jesus forgive me for allowing these doubts and wrong beliefs to speak louder than Your voice. I ask for increase in my faith to rise above the constraints of old mindsets and beliefs and to walk boldly in who You say I am".
Example: The lie - That I will walk around the same mountain of my circumstances never changing. The truth - "Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus"- Philippians 4:6-7
Application: Over the course of the week, daily look for opportunities where old mindsets or beliefs try to creep in and replace them with the Truth. You will notice how your faith increases about situations and circumstances. Write down your victories and share them with someone who will celebrate with you and help you walk this journey of freedom.
