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)

Breaking Forth Into The Glory

Posted 02-14-2024 at 03:40 PM by Albert Finch


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

God is the river, the flood and the One Who breaks forth with an outburst through the glory of His Spirit. He is the One Who breaks forth, springs forth inside of us driving out all resistance to His Presence and Person.

"For He will come in like a narrow, rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives [overwhelming the enemy]." AMP

We all want this place of "overflow" in God's Presence. Breakthrough is an integral part of that overflow. To tap into a life of breakthrough in our Christ calling is to avail ourselves to the living waters of the Spirit through staying connected to God, the Source of these waters by walking in the Spirit as we go throughout the day looking for direction concerning our next assignment.*

Through lives of prayer and fasting, especially in the context of communion with God, we can accelerate the process of breakthrough in our lives. In the story of Isaac, we see how the Philistines had clogged up the wells of His father (Genesis 26:18). In the same way the enemy is always trying to clog our wells to cause stagnancy, where there should be a flow, and hinder us in experiencing God's glory on a regular basis. The enemy wants to keep things in spurts rather than have us experience that rushing river of His glory as we consistently bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom through our Christ calling.*

Take fasting, the Word of God, prayer, and the discipleship of new believers to clear out your well so that God can bring your heart a significant breakthrough and that you may experience His rushing river consistently through your life.
