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)

Praying The Psalms - December 14, 2023

Posted 12-14-2023 at 06:39 PM by Albert Finch


In Jesus, I take refuge and behold His face. (Psalm 11:1,7)

The Word of the Lord is as pure as silver tried in a furnace seven times. (Psalm 12:6)

I trust in Your loving kindness, my heart rejoices in Your salvation. (Psalm 13:5)

I sing to the Lord because He has dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:7)

I dwell on Your holy hill, Lord Jesus, and abide in Your tent, since You are my righteousness and I carry Your Word in my heart. (Psalm 15:1,2)

LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. (Psalm 16:5)

The purpose you have given me is a pleasant calling, I have a most excellent heritage. (Psalm 16:6)

I will bless the LORD who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me. (Psalm 16:7)

I know Jesus is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is dwelling in me. (Psalm 16:8)

Praise the Lord! Great is my Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite. (Psalm 147:1,5)

Why pray the Psalm scriptures out loud?

It is hard to think about something other than what you are talking about. Praying out loud the scriptures solves the problem of the wandering mind. -- spoken words speak to the soul and have the power of raising thoughts in the soul. The Psalm scriptures speak of God in the Highest manner which most fully expresses the power and presence of God.
