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 rapidly gaining ground in this next season. The Spirit of Wisdom will expose every hidden assignment and snare of the enemy that has been orchestrated against your advancement.

Get ready! A greater level of the gift of discernment is giving you the advantage over your adversaries and enabling you to prepare ahead of time, so nothing catches you unaware or unprepared. You will not be caught off guard, but you will move with greater precision and supernatural accuracy.

Look up! Do not look back, for that will become the trap that is designed to entangle your feet and delay your breakthrough!

Watch! Fear not! For as you step forward in faith, the path ahead of you will become fully illuminated by the light and glory of His countenance that is now rising upon you!

Open your mouth wide, for the words you speak in this season will carry a greater weight of His glory upon them. Like a wrecking ball, the power of your words will break open new highways and supply lines for the provision of your Kingdom vision and mandate, and the spoken word that proceeds from your mouth will become as a mighty battle-ax that will slay the enemies who contend and war against your God-given authority and anointing.

Resist the lies and lures of the enemy, and decree that every demonic structure and stronghold of darkness will be overturned and overthrown! Decree that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will raise up a standard against him, causing him to be toppled over and trampled underfoot.

Isaiah 59:19: "... When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him."
