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)

You are part of a remnant of people who have eyes to see, faith to believe, and courage to advance in order to move forward, in His authority, into places and situations you have not yet experienced but are awaiting as part of your destiny.

Declare TODAY that the Holy Spirit is opening your eyes to see beyond the veil that the enemy has brought to blind you to the glory of the Lord moving in your midst. Now, see into the unseen realm with the eyes of your spiritual understanding enlightened, so that you can perceive that God is for you, moving on your behalf and sending you forth (Ephesians 1:17-23).

The measure of faith you have received is even now being activated, so you can believe and rise up from the place where you have been passive and overtaken by the spirit of oppression. Even now, it is breaking off, and the cloud of confusion is lifting. Rise up!

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1)

You were created to be a carrier of His glory! He is with you and sending you forth in the power of His Spirit to accomplish what He has ordained for you from before time (Ephesians 2:10). Open your eyes to see the Captain of the Lord of hosts and His angel armies surrounding you. Keep your eyes on Him and go as He leads; there are more for you than against you (2 Kings 6:16-17).
