Having a healthy spiritual life is one of the topmost demands in the world we’re today, you can’t just afford to be powerless.
How can I have a deep intimacy with God or how can I have awesome relationship with God is actually the same thing, however this is the top desire of most believers across the globe.
Below are ways to live a life style of pleasing God
1. Effective prayer life
It’s not possible to know the God you don’t talk to or pray to.
Prayer simply means communicating with God, this is a moment you reason with God. [Genesis 18:22-32] according to this Bible passage we see a man, called Abraham talking with God when He was trying to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, another benefit of prayer is it will make you become the friend of God just like Abraham.
Therefore the benefits of praying is unlimited, the more you pray to God the more you become like Him, the more you spend adequate time in praying the more He show you His ways and Who He’s to you.
2. Spending quality time with the Word of God
The Word of God is the foundation for good and effective Christianity, without the practicing of the Word of God, Christianity is just another religion.
Without the Word of God you can’t know the will of God neither can you know His ways. You need the revelations of the Word of God to have a sound prayer lifestyle. It take continue supply of the Revelation of God to wait in God.
The word of God is the foundational requirement for good spiritual life. It take the word of God to show us the way out of religion according to the word of Jesus John 8:32 KJV
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. The ways of God, the power of God can only be revealed through His world without the Word of God, there is no power. Therefore the absence of the Word of God in the life of a beliver is what make him powerless, non effective and live a life of mere religious life.
3. Fasting lifestyle
One of the best things a born again believer can do is to imbibe fasting as a life style.
Until fasting and praying is convenient and comfortable for you, you’re never going to work in the power of God. What fasting does is that, it will clear up the way for the flowing of God power and nature to you. Anything that suppose to stand in the easy between you and God, fasting and praying will clear it away.
Fasting position us to receive spiritual benefits from God, it makes us very sensitive to every of God instructions.
In fact without a consistent fasting and praying there cannot be a spiritual life. Every giant in the faith are men of prayer and fasting. Jesus command us to fast when He said when ye fast… [Matthew 6:16] . Note Jesus didn’t say if you fast, that’s if you like, or if it’s convenient for you, He said When you fast.
So fasting is command, instructions for God.
And only through this can we live a healthy spiritual life.
Without Holiness no man can please God. 2 Timothy 2:19 KJV
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
This scripture make it so clear, you don’t need to add or subtract from it, the number one of way of pleasing God is to live a life that is pleasing and acceptable unto Him, without this every other things is just an activity [Romance 12:1]
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.. Without a purity or holy lifestyle we’re like every other religion.
The number one function of the Holy Spirit is to make us to live holy, that’s why He’s called Holy Spirit Himself, which means the Spirit of Holiness.
He will first make you holy before working through you.
5. Worship God as a lifestyle
It take worship to access the deep things of God. It’s in moments of worship that we behold God in the beauty of Holiness. Worshiping God is the cheapest way to bring down the presence of God. Every prophet in the kingdom is aware of this, without the presence of God we can’t assess the throne of God.
How do you worship God, by thanking Him for who He’s. By acknowledging His mighty hand upon your life, this is the cheapest way for continuous outflow of the power of God in the life of a beliver.
6. Praising God as a lifestyle.
Most believers claim to love God until the day challenge show up. You don’t actually love God if you can’t celebrate Him in the midst of trials and circumstances.
God want you to give Him praise in the pit you are before He can’t lift you up, actually murmuring and worring does not change a bit about the future nor does It add any beauty to the present, but I can tell you it’s doing more damage to your presence stage than you can ever imagine. So give God some praise, organize personal time to give God good and quality praise. Do this and see Him taking you higher in life and in your spirituality.
Another way to have a good quality spiritual life is to give unto the Lord or to His servants.
There some time God can require you to sow a seed or to sacrifice a particular amount so daring to you.
Sowing seed to the life of a man of God that carry the grace of God is one of the way to tap and enter into another higher realm of authority and command in our spiritual life.
8. Love the House of God.
It was written concerning Jesus how the zeal dog the house of the Lord has consumed Him. Psalms 69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me. It’s in the house of God you hear the accurate Word of God.
The house of God is the pillar of truth, you can know God expect His house.
Psalm 92:13 KJV – Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
You can’t flourish in your spiritual life unti you are established and rooted in the house of God. Being a servant in the House of God quarantee you the continuous flow of the anointing of God upon you. The more you get engaged in His house the more He renewed the anointing upon your head.
8. Be a soul winner.
Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Until you win a soul to the kingdom of God, your salvation can’t be trusted. It’s not 200% sure.
The best way to be the man after God’s heart is to be a soul winner, until you’re passionate about winning souls for God you don’t know the heart beat of God.
Make it an habit, God has given you that job so that you publish His kingdom there.
At that business center share the good news, this is one way to operate in the spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit.
9. A lifestyle of Thanksgiving.
This is different from Praising God or Worshiping God.
You can be thanking God without dancing and you can also thank God without kneeling down or rolling on the floor. In fact this is the most simplest thing to do at all the requirements yet the most powerful.
Why standing in the bank you can thank God, while driving or even talking to a client you thank God and the good thing is the more you do it the more you get used to it.
10. Be a lover of God and His kingdom .
Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
What do I mean by this, I mean living a kingdom first priority, this is when you place God and His kingdom above every other things including yourself and your family.
And until you love God and His kingdom you can’t be a Good intercessor.
And until you are able to abandon all your needs and start praying to for God for the establishment of His kingdom, the salvation of unsaved souls you’re not on your way to a glorious spiritual life.
