The Theme for Cycle 2 of The 40-Day Surrender Fast is: The Exodus – Getting from Here to There. As we have learned “here” is our will and “there” is God’s will. So in others words for the next 36 days, God is instructing us on how to get from our will to His.
In that vain, God has opened the week with a discussion of His will to protect us. As He told the children of Israel, “when I see the blood I will pass over you” (Exodus 12). Therefore, we have been instructed to anoint ourselves with oil, as well as those things around us, as a symbol of the protection we receive from the blood as a result of the work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
So the Question of the Week (QOW) is:
- This week, in what way(s) has God demonstrated His protection towards you, a family member, or friend?
- Similarly, do you have a specific instance of applying the oil and seeing God demonstrate His protection either in your home, school, work, etc.?
