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)

Living In The Promises

Posted 12-02-2023 at 11:43 AM by Albert Finch


"I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day..." - Psalm 91:2-6

God promises us that we have no need to fear the demonic entities that will be in operation during this season because He will deliver us from the "...snare of the fowler and the noisome pestilence" (Psalm 91:3). The snare of the fowler is a symbol for demonic ambushes and traps that the enemy will try to set up against us. Noisome pestilence is symbolic of things that come into our life to try and drain our resources—just like pestilences come to destroy a farmer's crops. Yet, when we dwell in God's secret place, God will make sure that what He has blessed us with will not be devoured.

DWELLING IN HIS SECRET PLACE

"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust." - Psalm 91:1-2

It is in our personal time with God that He will give us divine strategies and speak to us about what is to come. We have to have our spiritual ears and eyes open to hear what God is saying to us in this season concerning carrying out His purpose for our life.

God is saying to us that when we abide in Him, He will build a wall of protection around us. No matter what evil is going on in our nation, or even within our territory of influence, it will not be able to touch us because God will be our refuge!

GOD WILL PROTECT US FROM SICKNESS DURING THIS SEASON

"Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." - Psalm 91:9-10

God wants to comfort us by letting us know that He is going to protect us from sickness and disease. Cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, etc., are all plagues. God wants to encourage you that no matter what sickness or disease that you have been attacked with—He wants to bring healing to you.

LOVE WILL BRING US INTO MASS DELIVERANCE

"Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver Him: I will set him on high, because he hath known My name." - Psalm 91:14

The only way we will ever be able to annihilate evil is by setting our love upon Christ. This begins with receiving Christ's love in our heart. As we affirm that we are receiving Christ's love in our heart, we then give our love back to Jesus -- we do this continually as we go throughout the day -- this is called abiding in Jesus. We demonstrate this action by permitting Christ to live through us as we help others with their spiritual needs.

God says that when we purposely focus our love on Christ and make Him our main priority, He will deliver us from all evil. This not only means that God will remove evil from us, but He will also make sure that evil never comes near us. Isn't that so awesome to know that if we concentrate on loving Jesus and demonstrating His character among those we come in contact with, evil strategies and plans that satan has for us (i.e. sickness, disease, failure, trauma, job terminations, etc.) will never even occur? God will literally shut down the enemy's plans before they even come our way.
