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)

Stewarding Our Lives

Posted 02-23-2022 at 01:30 PM by Albert Finch


"'Is not My Word like fire,' declares the Lord, 'and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?'" - Jeremiah 23:29

In 2022 be ready for demonstrations of His power, His justice, His provision, His favor, His breakthrough, and deliverance, but God is also looking for a people who are yielded, strong, fortified in Him and His Word alone, prepared, and maturing to CARRY HIS GLORY

As you SEE the power of the Word of God and His revelation contained within it, you stay close to His heart and DECREE HIS WORD. It's in the place of having to hold fast tightly to the Word of God. It is in the adversity that you receive greater revelation and impartation. The enemy will come in these moments of "testing" to SIFT you but as you hold onto the Word concerning your Christ identity -- the enemy's temptations will not take root.

It's up to us whether we stay on board and keep advancing His Kingdom by moving forward in His calling on our life and lay down any agendas.

The King of Glory is going to be made manifest and again the Church will be left face down in awe and wonder and trembling at the majesty of God and the power of His Word.

We must steward our lives and what He places in our hands, surrendering to His ways, with purity, integrity and humility.

The harvest is coming in! Let us be a people who are READY!
