Inventory & Installation

Here’s a very practical exercise to inventory and evaluate your spiritual life.

Lord, today I give you my:

Flesh

Temptations

Sin

Pride

Ego

Anxious Thoughts

Stress

Burdens

Bad Attitudes

Judgments

The things I do I know I should not

The things I know I should do that I do not

As you pray out each of these elements of your life, pay attention to any checks or senses you feel. Is there one or more of these that God wants to speak to you in, challenge you, convict you, forgive you, or free you? Honestly hand each one over but also hear Him speak in the process.

Now for the other side…

Lord, today I give you my:

Mind

Body

Spirit

Flesh

Actions

Thoughts

Attitudes

Motives

Ideas

Skills

Gifts

Time

Energy

Money

Marriage

Parenting

Relationships

Ministry

Identity

Goals

Dreams

Plans

Once again, as you pray out each of these elements of your life, also pay attention to any checks or senses you feel. Is there one or more of these that God wants to speak to you in, challenge you, convict you, or free you? Honestly hand each one over but also hear Him speak in the process.

On a regular basis, if we will dismantle our lives piece by piece before the Lord, He can help us turn over the pieces we no longer need to Him, give us new pieces to install, and change us by allowing Him to take over in an area we have been poorly managing.

Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. —Romans 12:2 MSG
