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)

Maybe you have been so disillusioned because the noise of fear has been like a subtle poison against the lifestyle of faith. It has created a wedge or a blockage, keeping you from hearing and receiving from God the way you used to.

Have you felt this? Have you felt like it's been so hard to enter the secret place – hard to pray, hard to read the Word, hard to feel His presence? Can you see how the enemy's plan has been to PREVENT you from receiving your Holy Spirit leading in your Christ calling? He has wanted you to feel alone, lost, and without the guiding hand of the Father, but it's not the truth! Lift up your head to the Lord and let the King of Glory come in (Psalm 24) and wage war through you. You are receiving a revelation of Jesus' love flowing through your heart, nourishing your desire to love and minister to others.

Get ready to receive new updates for your mission as God hands it to you and downloads it to your heart. Fogginess and confusion are leaving. Frustration and disappointment are evaporating. You will recognize the hand of the Lord in the time that it felt like His hand was lifted from your life. You'll see His hand was never more involved than in that moment.

"Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." (Jeremiah 33:3)
