So, you’re in a spiritual rut. Your inspiration’s gone. And you’re not sure why. Just last week, last month or last year, you were rolling. You were investing in your spouse, being intentional with your kids, finding purpose in your work and feeling close to God.
Are you praying for a spiritual breakthrough in your life? Maybe you’re praying for something to change in your life, or maybe you’re praying for God to help you change from the inside out.
The Bible has powerful instructions on encountering God and experiencing spiritual breakthroughs in your life. Here are 10 biblical keys to a spiritual breakthrough.
When we were growing up, missionaries would come from time to time to visit our churches. They brought pictures and told stories of faraway people in faraway lands. It all seemed very exotic. It made people think, I love Jesus, but I’m not sure I want to be a missionary. Since then we’ve learned that we’re all missionaries to the places where we currently live, work and play. How many in our immediate area have never heard the good news that Jesus died for their sins and was buried, and that God raised him from the dead? Who is going to tell them? Every believer needs to see himself or herself as a missionary. In short, we have to redefine the word “missionary” in our churches.
When a person is in grief, pain, or some kind of crisis, they turn to someone they can share it with. At times like these your presence and keen listening can make all the difference to the person in pain. Oftentimes, people are so concerned with what they are contributing to a conversation that they forget one important requirement for any conversation – the ability to listen carefully. This is something that both Christians and non-Christians can agree on. Knowing how to listen is crucial in relationships.
People are burning out — and fast. The traditional 9 to 5 work routine has all but vanished, and in its place we find technology supposedly streamlining our lives, or is it? Thanks to technology, employers are now able to expect their employees to be accessible 24 hours a day. Now, more people find themselves working on weekends, during holidays, and even vacations. The result: the stress in people’s lives is increasing.
