09.14.22 | Faith in Action

In Hebrews 11, the author provides many examples of faith, outlining what faith in action looks like. Today, we will be utilizing our time of fasting and prayer to dive deeper into this passage from our BREAD reading.

Use the four movements of FAST to meditate on Hebrews 11. Ask God to highlight for you something specific about faith. Then spend time in communion and conversation with him about what putting faith into action looks like in your own life.

Here are the four movements of FAST:

  1. Focus: Find a quiet place to settle your mind and open yourself to the Holy Spirit’s presence.
  2. Adoration: Spend time honoring and exalting God, tell him what you appreciate about him. Contemplate on who he is and what he has done. You might even be able to get a sense of his presence with you.
  3. Speak: Commune with God, taking moments to both speak to him about what’s on your heart and to pause and listen for his voice. Use journals to write down what you hear him say. Ask simple follow up questions like, “is there anything else you’d like me to know about [fill in the topic]” to really get to the heart of what Jesus wants to communicate to you and what you want to say to him or plead for while you fast.
  4. Transform: Commit to taking active steps to change or address what the Lord revealed during your time of fasting.
