Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

If we choose not to heed the leading of the Spirit and become proactive in renewing our minds, it is possible that we will limit God's power and anointing from flowing through our lives because of un-renewed thinking patterns that we are still embracing. - Ivan Roman

Affirmation: I find the Word of God that applies to my stronghold and saturate myself in it by affirming it frequently and meditating on it as I go throughout the day. I thank God that the stronghold has been demolished and cast down any wrong thoughts.

If you think Jesus won't heal you, you're wrong. He'll do anything scriptural for you. - Norvel Hayes

We are no longer capable of the greatest service of listening that God has committed to us, that of hearing our brother's confession, since we refuse to give ear to our brother on lesser subjects. We should listen with the ears of God that we may speak the words of God. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

There are many things that you can know about that are of little or no use to the soul, and a person is exceedingly foolish who reaches for anything that does not lead toward salvation. - Thomas a Kempis

You have the potential to believe impossibilities into possibilities. - Myles Munroe

We, as believers, have legal access to the realm of God's mysteries. (Mat.13:11). The hidden things are placed in waiting for the believer to discover. They are ours by inheritance. - Bill Johnson
