Spiritual growth comes with its fair share of challenges and one of them is spiritual dryness.
Have you ever felt that your love for God has turned into a feeble flame, ready to be blown by the slightest of winds? Have you viewed the spiritual disciplines and mere drudgery? Does it seem that your prayers never go past the ceiling? Here are a few steps that can deal with such episodes of spiritual dryness to restore your way back to the Lord.
Step 1: Turn to God and Pray, Pray, Pray!
Certainly not the most obvious answer but everything in the Christian realm requires one to turn to God. God already knows whatever we are going through and he wants us to bring all our problems to him first. Therefore, everyone should pray that God makes known to them his ways and fills them with joy in his presence.
Step 2: Conduct an Inner Monologue Rather Than Listening to Yourself
The main cause of spiritual dryness is listening to our doubts and complaints that come pouring out of our minds. The bible in Psalms 103:1-2 says, “Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul and forget not all his benefits.” Therefore, we need to affirm God’s truth to ourselves to maintain our faith.
