Drawing Closer

If you are the God a conscious person, you deserve a spiritual awaking hope you are interested to know why such a statement is important to you, or you might be asking what a spiritual awakening is? Let’s awake to God together.

The scripture worded it this way “They that worship God must be worship and sprit and truth, and this article williamjordan will be talking about awakening to God, awakening to God might be the most interesting thing a God fearing person can do. There are twelve components to awakening too God, honesty, hope, faith, courage, integrity, willingness, humility, brotherly love, discipline, consciousness, and service. When one uses these twelve as benchmarks, they are well on their way to a spiritual awakening.

Awakening to God is a spiritual exercise, and honesty is similar to a runner stretching before going on a run loosening the muscles and getting the blood flowing. Honesty to tell the truth, or to be candid this would be good for being a better person the honesty that begins and awakening is all about me being honest with the man in the mirror. Honesty that produces dignity that says this is who and what I am, and I need God to rescue me from self.

Hope is an expectation that something will happen to change the outlook of a bad situation this is a sure way to awaken to God; hope and faith are often confusing one is about expectations and the other is about dedication hope comes from believing the report of others when hundreds of thousands of people saying God did then maybe he did.

Faith is about going from maybe to say with assurance God did this kind of faith is necessary to awakening to God; faith is like begin on a long journey in the desert with little or no water and when death is sure, you find a river of fresh water the feeling that survival is certain over take you. The scripture clearly says, “They that come to God must believe that he is, and he is and a rewarder of those that diligently seek after him.”Once this kind of faith is established your awakening will begin because faith is necessary to really come alive spiritually.

Courage is an important part of a spiritual awakening as it is with anything worthwhile in life, the fortitude that comes from being free of fear, fear is a culprit that we must face and be rid of if we don’t want to be held hostage in our sprit or mind. When courage is established fear can be overcome, and our past can no longer be used by our spiritual enemies and Satan himself, the scripture clearly teaches “That Satan goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he can devour.” But when we have confidence in our belief in God, we will overcome fear, and will be confident and our spiritual progress,

Integrity now we have the ability to be truly honest with ourselves and others; we must remember that we are on a journey to a spiritual awakening where we will be able to claim a closeness with God and a demonstration of what closeness to God produces. Integrity is necessary as we become ambassadors of God. The word of God called for us to be witness of what God can do in a life of integrity is like reinforcing a foundation with rebar it makes it stronger integrity does the same thing in spiritual life people around you began to have in assurance of your character.

Willingness is the key that opens the door to a spiritual awakening without the willingness you will fail to accomplish what you deserve to remember in the beginning we made the declaration that this was a right, and willingness assures us that if we reach we will get because we are willing to take the necessary action.

Jesus our spiritual guide declared that the meek would inherit the earth, humility is necessary as honor to God as our father, and the less pride, we exhibit the closer we can draw to God the giver of all spiritual Awakenings. Humility thanking less of myself and more of my fellow man, humility will come overtime with practice.

One of the oldest questions to man was asked of God at the beginning of creation “Am I my brother's keeper” this is a question the first murder asked God with no remorse. Being my brother’s keeper is twofold one is to make amends for harms done forgiveness is a life key that has the tremendous spiritual power because it gets guilt off of my back by letting other off the hook. Brotherly love goes further it also allows me to help others that reach out for it.

Self-control is what discipline is about as the path to a spiritual awakens widens self has to be kept in check because pride is lurking at every stop of the journey self discipline is like letting the air out a balloon it keeps me grounded.

Prayer and mediation are like a spiritual work outs it these work outs that keep one on the right spiritual path. God consciousness is what will keep me on the spiritual path the more time spent praying and mediating the more successful a spiritual awakening will be. The word God suggested, “That man shall pray without ceasing,” Jesus told his disciple “this kind comes with prayer and fasting; he was speaking of the spiritual gift of healing. The scripture also teaches that “The fervent effectual prayer of a righteous man avails much,” The word of God is filled with teachings about the value of prayer and fasting these exercises are important to obtaining and maintaining a spiritual awakening.

Service is the last component of a spiritual awakening without service the journey is incomplete, and you will not keep your awakening because if you don’t serve what you need of an awakening? The idea is to share and give away what God has given you.

Above williamjordan has shared what he has called benchmarks of a spiritual awakening that you deserve if you have dedicated yourself as a God fearing person, these are suggestions to a deeper spiritual closeness to God and your fellow man hope you get the Spiritual awakening you deserve.

      I see fear as faith in the devil. Faith is the conduit that connects us to the awesome power of God. A man of faith is a man of courage. Learning to feed our spirits is another key to awakening our spirits to the spirit of God.

      I agree that we should be awake to God but the only real way to be close to God is through forgiveness of our sins by accepting His gift to us of His Son, Jesus Christ. Our model can be Jesus as He lived on earth; our guide and comforter in life is the Holy Spirit.
