DAYS OF MONASTICISM




Monestary

Not too many Christians want to or feel the need to join a Monastery or practice Eremitism which is; “monasticism characterized by solitude in which the social dimension of life is sacrificed to the primacy of religious experience.”

Still there is a desire to come aside and focus on our relationship with GOD without the disrupting forces intruding upon us.

Sunday worship can help fill the gap in our experience but most true worshippers want and need more. In addition to our church going there is what is called retreats where you can get alone and seek GOD but these times are hard to come by due to financial and family needs.

Without our knowing it, our spiritual strength is being drawn upon by other people continuously, the result being a case of the spiritual blahs. This happens and we don’t realize how much they are pulling us down.

Of course there are times when we are aware of our ministry to people in need as in Luke 8:46 And Jesus said, somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

In both cases you need to be refreshed lest you become “overdrawn.”

Each Christian must realize that they have spiritual limitations and learn to be a channel whereby GOD’S strength flows through you like a river and not like a lake that will soon run dry.

It is the “responsibility” of each of us to discover the best method to receive our restoration and always to be open to the Spirits’ prompting's.

Romans 8:26-27 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.


As you learn to cooperate with the Holy Spirit you will constantly be refilled and never run dry.
