If you’ve arrived at Deep Spirituality looking for help but don’t know where to start, The Weekly Deep Dive has got you covered.

Every week, we provide you with a selection of content from the Deep Spirituality vault to help you focus on growth in specific areas. Over the course of seven days, we will guide you through the topic of the week, setting you up for some great personal Bible study and conversations.

This week: The Courage of Our Convictions

When your circumstances are overwhelming, how do you respond? Are you shaken and insecure, or confident and calm? When we rely on ourselves, it can be easy to face difficulties with fear and compromise, but God wants to give us the kind of faith that isn’t easily shaken. He wants to instill courage in our convictions.

“Their circumstances will never shake them and others will never forget their example. They will not live in fear or dread of what may come, for their hearts are firm, ever secure in their faith. Steady and strong, they will not be afraid, but will calmly face their every foe until they all go down in defeat.”

Psalm 112:6-8 TPT

The studies in this week’s series are a great starting point to help us either build our convictions from the ground up, or strengthen what we have in order to grow. We can learn from God how to face whatever comes our way with courage.

Day five: Courage Is Contagious

Day six: Fearless Series: Conviction

Jesus had conviction. He wasn’t swayed by fear of what people thought about him. He had a deep belief that his purpose on earth was to teach people about God and to help people get to heaven. He stayed focused on that no matter what people said about him or did to him. He was willing to die for that belief. How do you feel about being someone who is unswayed by what people think of you?

Day seven: Become Unstoppable

God doesn’t want us to feel like we have to conform in order to be accepted, and wants to help us become strong enough to stand for what we believe and who we are.
