Welcome my Friends to the Second Quarter, 2019.
Whether one calls it 'Self-Denial', 'Soul Friendship', or 'Spiritual Disciplines', now, let's elaborate more on 'Spiritual Disciplines'.
I sincerely hope and pray that this series of posts will be advantageous to you for the purpose of growing in the knowledge and grace of the Lord.
Before we get started. Remember, these are 'tools', so let us not get anxious. Amen. Amen.
Continuing today, May 8, 2019 with some further posts since we began our series for anyone desiring to draw into a more intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ, with our Introductory Post A, Wednesday, April 3, 2019; Post B, Friday, April 5, 2019 ; Post C. Sunday, April 7, 2019; Post D, Wednesday, April 10, 2019; and Post E, Friday, April 12, 2019.
We now begin to post on a bi-monthly basis on Sunday/Wednesday/Friday, until we finish.
Post 1, April 24, 2019; Post 2, April 26. 2019; Posts 3,4,5,6,7,8; May 5,8, 10, 19, 22, 24,2019, and so forth.
Another and most important 'spiritual discipline' is Prayer '…pray without ceasing' (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And again, 'Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer' (Romans 12:12). And more, '…do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
It’s hard to overstate the importance of this spiritual discipline for the Christian life. Prayer is simply asking God for help or strength or provision. We should not worry or “be anxious about anything,” but bring all our needs and concerns to our gracious Father, because he loves us. Pride and self-sufficiency will keep us from this most important habit.
'Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you' (1 Peter 5.6-7). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
My, my. All the pain and suffering because we fail to 'lean on the provisions' we have been provided in Jesus Christ.
It is humbling to ask our Father for everything. Prayer says, “Father, I need your help. I need your grace. I need you to provide for me. To give me wisdom and strength. To lead and guide me with my life in all its aspects.”
Rather than try to solve our own problems or relieve our own anxiety, we should cast them on our Father. Why? Because he cares for us – He genuinely, truly cares for us.
Remember, a “discipline” is something we do regularly. So don’t wait until you’re in trouble to pray. Do it every day. And please, please, please - 'get rid of pride that leads to destruction'. [Proverbs 16:18]
A good pattern for prayer is the Lord’s prayer.
'Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and
lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.'
[Matthew 6:9-11; Luke 11:2-4] May you just 'begin' today. Amen. Amen.
