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)

1 Corinthians 2:9 - "But as it is written: 'Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.'"

2024 will see the Lord bring swift advancement to many people. There is also a call from the Lord for His people to move beyond their comfort zones and step into new territory, operating in the new way the Lord is leading them. They will spiritually move into a new land, occupy new territory, and move significantly beyond where they are now, into the next level of their destiny in Him.

Just like a bridge carries us from one place to another, people will move from where they are and rapidly shift and advance and move into the fullness of their Christ calling. Spiritually, they will be moving to a place that is beyond what they could have envisioned because now they will start bearing fruit that remains for His Kingdom.

You may have gone through a season of refining and preparation in order to enter the new place the Lord has prepared for you to move into next year. It will be a year of great fruitfulness and blessing as the Lord leads you out of the Laodicean evangelical lifestyle (Revelation 3:15,16) of your comfort zone into the infilling of new strength, vigor, and faith. God is setting you up to ride the wave of your lifetime!
