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)

Apprehending The Race Set Before Us

Posted 09-06-2020 at 12:14 AM by Albert Finch


"In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul...Though I walk in the midst of trouble, YOU WILL REVIVE ME; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. THE LORD WILL PERFECT THAT WHICH CONCERNS ME..." - Psalm 138:3, 7-8

The word "perfect" is the Hebrew word gâmar, which means to end in the sense of COMPLETION.

God has promised us in His Word to complete that which He has started in us and He is presently doing a spectacular work to see His intentions in and for us realized (Philippians 1:6).

THE NARROW PLACE


"..and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life." - Mathew 7:14

THE NARROW PLACE IS THE BIRTHING CHANNEL that is now moving His people forward out into broad and spacious places of freedom and victory!

The Lord is bringing His people OUT and establishing their boundaries in pleasant places!
We are coming out with strength and with revelation!
We are coming out with direction and strategies;
We are coming out with joy and with passion!
WE ARE COMING OUT AS AN ARMY ON THE OFFENSIVE READY TO CONQUER AND TO OCCUPY!
We are now being established at higher levels of faith, undergirded with a double portion of grace and with a greater understanding of His great power that is available to us in establishing us in our CALLING in Christ.


God has given us the word of authority to move the mountains before us, and as we speak forth in faith, our very BIG God breathes into the word and all things begin to align to His will! He is aligning us in His will and securing our lives in Him!

DETERMINE TO BOLDY RUN THE RACE


NOW IS THE TIME to boldly run the race set before us (our CALLING in Christ) and to occupy all areas that He has PURPOSED for us to advance the Kingdom of God. Psalm 110 prophesies that the people of God will volunteer freely to work the works of God in the DAY OF HIS POWER – a Day that is now upon us!

He is now opening a GREAT and EFFECTIVE DOOR for us to reap a GREAT HARVEST.

"WHATEVER YOUR HAND FINDS TO DO, DO IT WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT..." - (Ecclesiastes 9:10).

As the GREAT AND EFFECTIVE DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY OPEN to us in the days ahead, let us lay hold of God and run with endurance...with all our might...the race He has set before us!

"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us..." - Hebrews 12:1
