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)

We are at the door of transition to step into that season. We set our heart like a flint -- ready to go...

The apostolic ox anointing speaks of the steady plow of the field with stubborn tenacity. We move forward in spite of the pain, in spite of the warfare and in spite of the loss. God is calling on forerunners to establish new revival hubs and re-establish those that have been aborted.

We are in a generation that will change the landscape of the Kingdom. They will carry the mandate of God in spite of warfare, they will fight for reform, they will battle spiritual forces with a violent...

Understanding God's Delays

Posted 01-29-2024 at 01:53 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

The reasons for delay in your life are actually choices you have total control over?

Reason #1 – Pursuing the Promise Instead of God

If you have been in a pattern of delay for weeks, months, or even years, ask yourself, "Have I been chasing something that is related to God's purpose for my life?"
