40 days of consecration

The purpose of a time of consecration is to set apart a person, thing, or place as sacred, holy or to dedicate to a higher purpose. This holy consecration is set time in preparation for the dedication to a higher purpose and deepening our relationship with the Lord. The observations of Asaph are not merely relevant to his life’s experiences but to many believers as well. “It is good to be near to God…” Asaph began this psalm with, “But as for me, my feet almost slipped” (73:2). He finishes with, “But for me it is good to be near God…” What happened between verses? He encountered God in worship. In the presence of God, he found the truth, hope, and strength he needed.

"But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works."
 Psalm 73:28 ESV
