The term, "Spiritual Discipline" brings images of punishment, being deprived and enduring hardship, but the root word is "disciple," which is a "learner," a "follower," and a "believer."
Believers in Christ have been practicing these exercises for ages because they longed to know Christ more intimately and these disciplines helped them to do that.
David talked of thirsting, longing and seeking after God. In this world He alone is what truly quenches our thirst and fills our souls.
Practicing these disciplines is a way to pursue a deep, satisfying and transforming relationship with the Lord.
There are many types of disciplines available to guide our growth in Christ
When we are tuned into God, not only can we experience His love and holiness, but we can also learn what is inside of us that does not look like His Son. Then the Spirit works with us to transform those things until they do.
Spiritual disciplines help us to yield to God and surrender our striving for our own kingdom and start to live His.
This practice is focused on becoming aware of God always with you.
Find rest for your souls as you come away with God.
This is a method to bring God's Word deeply into your heart.
Learn to live a simple life
Discipline your mind to think for God
Let the Word itself transform you.
Subdue your flesh to move closer to Christ
All of these tune your heart into God so that you might learn that your life is about Him. He is the source of your life, He provides the breath in your lungs. It is His kingdom that is important. As you break away from your daily ruts and rountines to focus on God, your life comes back into proper perspective. These are tools to help you listen to what the Lord wants to tell you. You will begin to hear His voice and His direction for your life.
Come to Me, all you are weary and heavy-
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart,
and you will find rest for your soul.
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Matthew 11:28-
