Daily Disciplines for the Christian Life: Refill Your Spiritual Supply

Refill Your Spiritual Supply

Ps.143:7-12; Mat.6:9-13; 1Pe.2:1-5

My car has a drain; something is using up power, and I haven’t been able to track it down. To keep it running, I have to KEEP IT RUNNING.

Running Low? To Recharge Your Life

* GRASP the WORD ~ Psalm 143:7-12 (hold on for dear life!)

  • 7 what’s the answer?
  • 8 show-look/listen
  • 9 rescue/read to hide
  • 10 teach/study
  • 11 preserve/memorize
  • 12 “for I am Your servant” / meditate

GET (hear- Rom 10.17)
READ (Rev 1.3)
ANALYZE (study- Act 17.11)
STORE (memorize- Ps 119.9-11)
PONDER (meditate-Ps 1.2-3)

* GASP your PRAYER ~ Mathew 6:9-13 (pray like you breathe)

PRAY LIKE THIS:

  • 9a relationship (Our Father…),
  • 9b worship (hallowed be Your name),
  • 10 interruption (YOUR kingdom – we give up),
  • 11 provision (give us this day – we rely),
  • 12 forgiveness
  • 13a protection (lead us),
  • 13b affirmation (Yours is)

* GROW up ~ 1Peter 2:1-5 (move on to maturity)

  • 1 “put away” like taking of filthy clothing
  • 2/3 crave to grow up; beyond want-NEED
  • 4 AS you come – ongoing (fellowship)
  • 5 priests: stand before God for people, and before people for God

The Christian life is like a cross
~ live the VERTICAL: Pray up; get the Word down
~ live the HORIZONTAL: FELLOWSHIP needs commitment of time, energy, resources; WITNESS: not what you DO, but who you ARE
