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)

Being Available For The New

Posted 07-10-2021 at 09:35 PM by Albert Finch


Once God moves you to a new place, the old paths and ways simply don't work anymore! If you continue to try to go the same way as you always have, you will stub your toe! You will run into walls and possibly even dead ends.

God is saying today that He has moved you to a new place! You no longer reside where you used to in the spirit realm. You must seek Him for new ways to do things and new pathways to get to where He wants you to go. The old way, the old paths you used to trod – the comfortable ways, the ones you are used to – simply will not produce the results that are desired by the Great I AM in this next season.

NEW EXPECTATION

God is also saying you need new expectation in 2021. You must expect good things – GOD things – in this new season. God is out to bless you! Disregard the doom and gloom message that is being belched out everywhere you go. God has measured you, and weighed you, and you have not been found wanting (see Daniel 5:27)!

Isaiah 54:2 -- "Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations; spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes."

To walk in our DESTINY we must learn new ways and walk out of the old ways and comfort zones of the past. Now is the time to enlarge, stretch, lengthen, strengthen, spread abroad, resettle, inherit and inhabit the new places.

It is time to let go of the old and reach for the new, embracing the high calling of God in our lives, to win souls and MAKE DISCIPLES of new believers.

WATCHFUL AND DISCERNING

We must be smarter in this season than we have ever been. Ask God!


We must be more discerning than we have ever been. Ask God!

We must be more watchful and on guard, because we are at a new level spiritually – higher than we have ever been before! Trust Holy Spirit!

We are at a new place! We cannot continue to do things as they were done in seasons past, because they don't work anymore. We must rely on the Spirit of God in us! Listen to Him and trust Him, our witness.

And expect good things! Because they are coming!

John 16:13 - "But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future]."
