The Benefits of Having A Spiritual Awakening

Updated on January 10, 2013

The benefits of a spiritual awakening are numerous and will probably differ for each person but there are some basic rewards that we all share such as hope, love, and understanding these coupled with love joy peace and forgiveness are at the core of every spiritual experience. Not to mention honesty, integrity, discipline and faith, along with brotherly love, happiness, and a sense of purpose.

Four Keys

"Real Power for Broken Lives Awakening the Spirit" was the introduction to bridging the gap that Christians would better understand the term spiritual awakening. There are four points vital concerning the term spiritual awakening that will be discuss to diffuse some of the stigma attached to it. Many Christians find the term taboo but they shouldn't it's an important part of the spiritual journey.

Four Vital Points:

1. Man is a living Spirit: "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." (Genesis 2:7)

2. Jesus made this statement this kind comes only by prayer and fasting. Explanation to the disciples on losing a spiritual battle. "And he said unto them, this kind come forth by nothing but prayer and fasting." A few more words on spiritual battles because this is a major part of spiritual awareness in the life of a Christian. "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh" (Corinthians, 10:3)

3.They that worship me must worship and spirit and truth, God wants to commune with our spirit that's the purpose for the Holy Spirit the comforter the very word comforter demand intimacy, yes God want intimacy time when it just you and him why for the benefit of strengthen your spirit man.

4. Spiritual power " But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts 1;8) As with all other gifts to Christians the spiritual power is for the benefit of soul winning it takes us back to the weapons of our warfare see with have the ability to diffuse negative spirits that control the lives of others when we have awakened our spirit

Second we will look at what is a spiritual awakening? Third we will look at why one might pursue a spiritual awakening? And last we will look at some of the benefits of a spiritual awakening?

"They that worship God must worship him in spirit and in truth."

This is what the teacher had to say he also told his disciples he would send the Holy Spirit which would lead in guide them in all truth and provide comfort. Jesus spent a lot of time talking about the oneness of him and the father this oneness should and could be perceive as being spiritual since spiritually is all about connecting with God and your fellow man. Since Jesus did not shy away from spiritual things and suggested he would send a spirit of comfort we fill it's okay for Christians to pursue a spiritual connection with God we are not talking about the inner self or any new age teaching we are writing about connecting with God as he is describe in the word of God.

What is a spiritual awakening you will find many answer to this question?

"Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment is the primary goal of almost all spiritual practices, traditions and religions and for any spiritual seeker. There are many names for this awakened state of Consciousness depending on what culture and tradition we belong to.

This page will be continuously updated with information and personal experiences about Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment suitable for Christian these will consist only of prayer, mediation, scripture recall and positive confession.

This is one definition of spiritual awakening but for the Christian or true believer this definition will and does not suffice because we are looking to connect with God's spirit with hope that the connection will do at least two things draw us closer to God and find out his will for our lives. Bonding with God is the real objective of any spiritual development we might desire as our spirit awakens through fellowship with God thru prayer and meditation we began to see the need for God and the benefits of him being near to us allows us to desire his will for our lives the awakenings fits us to be of service to God and our fellow man.

While one might pursue a spiritual awakening this question can be answered differently by each person so we have choose some reason that relate to our pursuit of a spiritual awakening.

Lack of power to overcome vices that where destroying our very existence was one reason we cried out the pain associated with bondage to and outside force that was sucking all of the live out of our being and the emptiness it created was just one reason we cried out. Hopelessness is another reason one might seek a spiritual awakening lose hope is like spiritual caner it spreads throughout the spirit of the victim and paralyses the sufferer to the point that he says what's the use there is no hope for me. Bitterness is another form of spiritual caner fueled by hate in lack of trust, we continue on destruction by telling ourselves I'll show them the more we show them the sicker we become spiritually, and as the spiritual malady sets in we allow this cycle of bitterness to rule our life. These are just a few others are anger, guilt and shame these coupled with despair and the list could go on and on we hope you have an ideal of the spiritual malady. If you can relate too some of things we have discuss as the reason one might pursue a spiritual awakening then you are a candidate for a life changing experience that will rejuvenate your life.

What are the benefits of a spiritual awakening?

The benefits of a spiritual awakening are numerous and will probably differ for each person but there are some basic rewards that we all share such as hope, love, and understanding these coupled with love joy peace and forgiveness are at the core of every spiritual experience. Not to mention honesty, integrity, discipline and faith, along with brotherly love happiness and a sense of purpose. We find ourselves useful again and have a strong desire to help others and to be help it's no longer us against the world. These are just a few of the rewards the main reward is the knowing of a rebirth we are reborn and we know it and we feel that others should know about our experience so they can join us on our spiritual journey.

In conclusion I hope something has been wrote that will give others that might find their selves and the grips of a spiritual malady a desire to seek a spiritual awakening which is basically a tool that teaches us to rely on God and the people he puts and our lives that offer us help because the can relate to the spiritual pain they see in us. Today we pray that God will make us useful and whole thru a spiritual encounter that will forever change our lives
