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)

Seeking Your Breakthrough

Posted 03-04-2022 at 12:42 AM by Albert Finch

Your life of devotion before God in prayer opens up the heavens and releases revelation into your life. Revelation and information are not equal or the same. You can have a lot of good Biblical information but it may seem lifeless to you because it is simply a ritual.

The good news is your information can become revelation, light, and transformation as you devote yourself to God in worship and prayer. You must have spiritual hunger, a strong prayer life, as well as time affirming and meditating on the Word to gain a clear or substantial movement of the Spirit in your life. Remember, the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Romans 8:26, "Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."

Ask, Knock, And Seek Until You Find Understanding Of Your Christ Calling

Psalms 16:7, "I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel; my heart also instructs me in the night seasons."

Breakthrough awaits in the night seasons; find your place of seeking God where His light will find you. The eyes of the Lord are searching for you.

Prosperity and blessing are found in the hidden places with God. His dwelling place is the launching place for your calling in Christ. Don't think for a second that you are insignificant and not important. Only seek the Lord, setting Him first above all things, and He will find you and use you as the vessel for His glory as you are led to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom.
