Connect with GodGrow Spiritually, Connect With God, and Increase Confidence
Connecting With God Brings Abundance and FavorConnecting with God will eliminate many problems from your life.
Faith is the key to spiritual growth and requires a deep and personal connection with God. He wants to be the head of our hearts, king of our souls, and guide to our spirits. By allowing Him free reign in these areas we create an opportunity for lasting intimacy with the Creator. From intimacy comes confidence - in Him and in us. Here are six ways I increase my faith and confidence. You might also find them helpful.
Pray. Reach out to God through prayer and surrender to him everything that makes you anxious and worried; let go of those things you are powerless over and let God meet your needs with His grand and divine solutions. Present to Him your heart-felt concerns and listen for His wisdom and guidance. Don't forget to praise Him in the process, showing your gratitude and thanksgiving for all He has done for you. Connect with God through prayer and feel the unexplainable peace that will protect your heart and mind through all situations.
Read the Scriptures. The scriptures are the foundation for our success. They direct our paths and encourage our efforts. They offer life lessons and suggest compelling principles to live by. Make time every day to read the scriptures in your effort to understand God's plan for you and apply His teachings to your life. Read a Study Bible for additional context and clarity, and any other scriptures referenced. Let God's Word be your compass.
Fellowship with God and Others. Keep company with God and those who also want to grow spiritually. Learn from the experience, strength, and hope of those who have gone before you. Listen to and apply their wisdom and truth to your own life circumstances. Pray together. Dine together. Praise God together. Read the Bible together. This is how we hold each other accountable and invite help where we need it most.
Embrace Suffering and Adversity. Life happens and nowhere does it say that life with God makes us immune to or free from trials and tribulations. Stretch yourself by pressing through hardship and adversity. Experience suffering in all aspects. It is through difficulties that we develop talents and skills that God will use later.
Rest and Rejuvenate. We often make things harder because we don't take the time to nurture and care for ourselves. We are not Super Heroes. We are human beings with limitations. It is critical that we recognize our limits and tend to our needs in order for us to be our best, reach our highest potential, fulfill our noble purpose, and be the very person God created us to be. Make time for quiet and peace, and listen for God's personal message for you. Be still and know that He is God.
Participate in Service Work. Find opportunities to help others. Serve in ministry at your church. Serve in community at your local library or hospital. Volunteer your time and talents to help someone else. When we help others we get out of self and become an instrument God can use. Be a good steward of opportunities for assistance; don't hesitate when the need arises and serve with a heart of willingness and humility.
Spiritual growth takes time. Not unlike any other relationship, developing an intimate and personal relationship with God requires an effort on our part. It requires us to be willing, present, and vulnerable. When we offer ourselves in this regard, and follow the steps outlined above, we mature spiritually and connect with God on deeper levels. In essence, we grow in confidence - in Him and in ourselves.
Also, those not living with God are usually living without fully enjoying their daily lives. They don't tend to have firm principles for their lives rather they are often ruled by their own feelings and many of them live a life of inertia from day to day. But after all, it's also possible many people may not be able to avoid having a meaningless life. This is especially true when they are not even aware that they are not living solely by their own power, but were given birth and allowed to live by God. In our materialistic secular society, often people don't give a thought to the fact that we are not in control.
There are also some people who appear to have a devoted faith and are doing their best while praying to God, but actually they are not connected with God. The reason people appear as if they have a devoted faith but don't is because they encounter unexpected misfortunes or they became severely sick and so they lose trust in God. Often these people have the mental habit of being excessively attached to things. Even though they say they have faith in God, this is their own way of having a faith through their mental habits. In other words, they don't understand God and are using Him, blaming Him and developing a purely selfish way of faith. This is not a form of really being with God.
Conversations With GodHow to Pray Them and Greatly Increase the Intimacy of Your Relationship With God
Making a prayer is the only way in which any human kind can communicate with God. Prayer is a very powerful tool which helps us to stay in close contact with our Father. Prayers should be done at any time, day or night, any place, whether at work or at home. Whenever one feels like you are very lonely and as if people have despised you, prayers helps you to understand that there is a God who doesn't despise you.
Prayer is a religious practice seeking to activate volitional connection to our most high God. You can either choose to have an individual prayer or a communal prayer. The reason why we pray is because our Lord Jesus Christ directed us to do everything in prayer trusting that it shall be done. "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints" (Ephesians 6:18). There are very any other verses of the Holy Bible where Jesus talks about prayers.
With this in effect, pastors have found themselves in the practice of connecting the saints through prayer requests made to them by the believers. This has also led to the introduction of online prayer requests sites where one can submit your prayer requests of what they want prayed for, believing that it shall be done. Christian sites have also provided many forms of prayers with some quoting prayer of the day.
To some, prayer is the only way to give them confidence, to pursue a very difficult task. To others, prayers are one way to keep their hearts light and to feel that closeness to God. Christians have learnt the importance of frequent praying, and starting from morning prayers, lunch prayers, dinner prayers and other prayers are some of the much known prayers. Online prayer is one of the most widely spreading ways of praying since one doesn't have to move to the local church. You can have your prayer request while at home or at your place of work.
Most of the sites which provide online prayers are free, nothing is paid. This allows more Christian to have that confidence of taking a step of letting their burdens move away and learning to connect more easily to our Father.
