Our Best Days

Posted 11-15-2023 at 10:23 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

You know there are things you are doing now that are temporary. You are doing them only until you find the thing God wants you to do, the real work you were meant to do. When the fire reaches your core, you will trash all the vestiges of mundane, tiresome, powerless living.

Our best days are yet to come! God sent us to do a job and we're going to reap because He is the one who sent us to do it! When we launch out intoHis purpose for our life we're going to catch what we need to catch,...

Breaking Free From Following Others

Posted 11-15-2023 at 07:26 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Ephesians 4:1 - "As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received."

Observing others can help us set the bar of excellence high for ourselves. But at some point, there must be a breaking point -- where one respects, admires and learns from others but then turns inward to be what God called him to be.

"The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord." (Isaiah 11:2)

November 15, 2023 – Exhortation

Posted 11-15-2023 at 03:56 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

God is saying that you have been and are sitting on a goldmine, on a heavenly vault full of treasure. You are sitting on everything...
