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)

Isaiah 43:18,19 - "Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."

In order to expect the unexpected according to Isaiah 43:18-19, you must forget the "old way" and you must have "new eyes to see."

The Lord may be birthing...

Proverbs 18:21 - "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."

This season is going to be a season for your mouth to declare what you have seen and heard in the spirit. Make sure that your words line up to His Word! You cannot waste any more time coming into agreement with the enemy, speaking out what you see in the natural.

Your circumstances may be mocking your promise right now but get ready for God...

John 15:5 - "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."

When we stay fresh in the Spirit of the Lord, we also will grow in our relationship with the Lord. He empowers us to press through all obstacles, limitations, and fears in order to advance with perseverance in progressive breakthroughs and to take new levels in God's purpose for our life.

You can draw on and see an...

Exodus 33:15, Moses says, "Then he said to Him, 'If Your presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here."

God has fresh, eternal waters for us to drink from every moment. These waters of the life of His Spirit are needed and cannot be neglected, for they are what sustains us in the more difficult times. To be without His presence is to be on your own – that is definitely not a desire or an option.

To embrace the "new" for your life...

2 Samuel 5:19,20 - "And David inquired of the LORD, 'Shall I go up against the Philistines?... And he said, 'The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like a breaking flood.'"

The key to breakthrough is to inquire of the Lord. David did not go forward in his own strength but he waited upon the Lord for wisdom and for clarity.

We need to be in alignment with His Spirit. The more the Lord entrusts to us, the more we must learn to wait upon Him. Too many...
