Walking in the Spirit Course
Learn How to Walk
In these 8 classes, Walking In the Spirit, you will learn how to build a day, by starting it with God and living in the now moment with Him. You will also learn how to activate a flow of the Holy Spirit and how to maintain that flow throughout the day.
Jesus said in John 10:27, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
This scripture reveals the intimate nature of God’s involvement and leading in your life.
How do you cultivate a continual inner awareness of God’s presence and follow His leading throughout the day?
It may sound challenging, but actually, it is very simple. The key is learning to surrender your will to God’s daily.
Once the daily surrender habit is established in the morning the rest flows out of that place of closeness with God. God will begin to reveal His heart to you and your desires will begin to change, your outlook will be different, the clutter in your mind will clear up, you will hear His voice, a deeper peace will be felt and your hunger for God will grow.
This is not an overnight process but it a journey into intimacy with the One who created you. Discovering intimacy with God through complete surrender is the key to unlocking God’s destiny for you.
We’re excited to have you…Him every morning
The class covers a wide range of topic including, how important our thought life is, learning how to build a successful day, walking in the Spirit and spiritual warfare. So often we feel isolated and alone, not knowing how to connect with our Creator. Jesus made a way for each of us to experience His love daily by His sacrifice on the cross. We can experience it by spending time alone with Him every morning.
“The 40-Day Worship Experience is truly life-changing. Learning to receive God’s love through daily surrender brings us closer to his presence and the supernatural life-giving power that comes by living in the spirit.”
“The 40 DWE helped transform my times alone with God from a “have to“ to a “want to”. It’s been a wonderful ongoing discovery of how much God loves me and wants to communicate with me. It’s been fun trying the various tools (ways of connecting and communing with God) in the toolbox and enjoying the changing flow of these times as God continues to reveal Himself and His love. In summary, each day I discover He is “Gooder” than I ever thought.”
“The worship challenge came to my life on my darkest season bringing healing to my soul. During those 40 days you are reminded about a basic Christian principle, a life of intimacy with God is what keeps you moving forward through every season. It is simple and life-changing, a great tool for the Journey.”

The 40-Day Worship Experience
The Experience is to spend 40 consecutive days sitting with God first thing in the morning for 15 minutes while surrendering our will and listening to worship music. As we do this, our hearts will open up to Him and His love flows in. It’s that simple. We were created to be loved. Our souls will be transformed by His love. Have a Bible handy, God will speak through His Word, it will come alive. Also, have a journal to write the thoughts He begins sharing. As we sit with God, we may or may not feel anything specific happening, but know God is right there working deep inside. A dramatic impact felt over the next 40 days. This is a launching pad to intimacy with God, 40 days will turn into 80, then 120 and so on. These times will become the most important and most energizing part of our day. Every human has innate needs–things like freedom, love, joy, acceptance, purpose, and peace. When we allow God to meet these needs, we no longer have to spend our days in pursuit of emotional, mental, spiritual and relational fulfillment. We can face our day from a platform of sufficiency. God’s presence in our life is all you need.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you want a little more direction as you begin this journey, here are a few common questions people ask. We hope these are a beneficial resource to you. If you still have a question, reach out! We respond quickest to direct messages on Facebook and Instagram.
What is the 40 Day Worship Experience made up of?
The 40 Day Worship Experience devotional primers are short videos to encourage you in your time alone with the Lord. Watch one each day. They will support you on the 40DWE. God is doing something new in your life each morning. You are opening up your heart to His. Your time alone with God is the most important part of your day! Let the videos encourage your heart to press on and keep meeting with the Lord. You will see changes happening in your heart as you sit with Him!
Do I need to do the experience alone?
No, you do not have to walk through this alone. In fact, we love seeing people connect with others through this process. We call this "linking shields."
The concept of linking shields goes back to the time when the Roman soldiers would link their shields to protect themselves as they advanced towards the enemy. When we join forces with those around us, we become stronger than we would on our own.
“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed” (Ecclesiastes 4:9 NLT).
Join the Facebook group and be encouraged by others who are meeting with God every morning. Also, ask a friend or two to go on the 40 Day Worship Experience with you. Have them text you, “Good morning,” when they are meeting with God. Text them back, “Good morning,” when you are meeting with God. It’s that simple!
Is there some sort of introduction to the 40 Day Worship Experience?
Yes, we have created an intro page to explain our approach to this experience. You don't have to read through it to get started on Day 1, but it is available on our resources page if you're interested.
This will give an overview of the 40 Day Worship Experience (40 DWE). Read this before you start to catch the vision for meeting each morning with God for the next 40 days. Give God the first 15 minutes of your day, surrender your will to His, and open up your heart to his love. The page will give you practical suggestions for starting the 40 DWE. This will be the beginning of experiencing God’s love in a new way.
What do I do for the 40 days?
Each day, you will receive an email with thoughtful content and Scripture to prompt your time with God. We also include a link to the Surrender Prayer to start your quiet time off and a link to the Facebook Group in case you want to connect further with community.
You can preview what those prompt emails include here: Prompt Preview
Praying is intimidating to me. Where do I start?
Surrendering our will over to God’s will is such a critical and essential part of our relationship with God. It allows God’s love to flow into our hearts. But, that doesn't mean it isn't daunting to many of us. That is why we wrote a guiding Surrender Prayer.
This Surrender Prayer (linked below) has been used by many to guide their daily surrender to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It focuses on giving God the full control of our lives and defeats the insurgence of the flesh—our old nature—into our thoughts and feelings. There is a longer and a shorter version. Both will help guide your first thoughts toward God, allowing you to receive his love afresh. This is the best way to begin the day.
Do I need the book to complete the experience?
The Be with Jesus 365 book is meant to supplement your walk with God and flows nicely with the 40 Day Worship Experience, but you can definitely work through it in your own journal if desired.
Discover a relationship with your Creator that is dynamic, genuine and fresh. The book is about approaching God with simplicity and candor. It is about going beyond religion, ritual, and packaged prayers. You will learn to draw near to God through prayer in an atmosphere of worship—and as you do, you will enjoy your spiritual journey like never before.
This book will be used with the class, “Experiencing God’s Love.” A 40 Day Journal and Study Guide Questions for each chapter are included.

What about the class? How does that fit in?
The class will help you grow closer to God and know Him in a more intimate way. It covers 7 simple steps to intimacy with God. You will see how spending time alone with God every day will transform your life.
The class complements the book quite well, so it is easiest to go through those together. However, you can work through them simultaneously or in any sequence you decide.
There are 9 classes. Listen to one class each week and implement the content on a daily basis. Enjoy the journey of drawing near to God. Our goal is to meet with God for the first 15 minutes of the day, for 40 straight days. Don’t get discouraged if you miss a day! Just start up again the next day. Remember, God waits all night for you to get up, and He wants be with you!
