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)

God has freedom and favor for you, now and in the future! This is your time to flourish and be fruitful.

A season is like the chapter of a book—it has a beginning, a middle, and an end! Then eventually, a new chapter opens. This is where we can learn from...

If we think that our deliverance depends partly on God and partly on us, we will not have a settled peace in our heart. But when we know that it is the blood alone that saves, we will have an unshakable peace. Saves from what? -- anything that doesn't match up with heaven.

May those things that you felt died be resurrected in even bigger and better ways to the glory of God.

MAY YOU DECLARE: "Dreams and Destiny come forth!"

When you depend...
