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)

God Has Appointed You To A Wall

Posted 02-25-2024 at 01:01 PM by Albert Finch


God is speaking to many people at this time that angels are waiting at your wall! Take heart, for that situation you are facing is about to become a miracle zone.

The walls of an ancient city were where watchmen stood guard. "Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings" - Isaiah 58:12

A wall can represent an obstacle. Nehemiah wept when he heard the walls of Jerusalem were broken down, and the city's gates burned with fire. Nehemiah prayed, he interceded. And then, he realized God had appointed him to go and help rebuild that wall himself.

Like Nehemiah, God has appointed you to a wall. Your "wall" is an assignment God has given you. An influence that is uniquely yours – something He has given you to protect, watch over and build. It is your Father's promise to you – your Christ calling. l

ANGELS AT YOUR WALL: It's Time To Show Up

Hear your Father say, "Don't stop asking, seeking, and knocking. Don't stop calling on Me. Don't rest, when it comes to prayer." - Luke 11:9, 18:7

"I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give Him no rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth." - Isaiah 62:6-7

What does it mean to cry out to your Father day and night? It means that when people all around you are resting, you are wrestling. Others may be lukewarm, but you are fanning the flames because passion is burning on the inside of you. You are being fueled, not by your own strength and energy, but by the fire of the Holy Spirit.

Gradually, there comes a shift in your prayers –

"this is what You said, and this is how it is going to be. I command every power of darkness to release the destiny of this wall in Jesus name. I speak life. I say, 'Let that promise spring forth, in Jesus name!'"

Earth-shifting, obstacle-busting, angel-employing prayer starts with simply showing up.

ANGELS AT YOUR WALL: It's Time to Rise up

"See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are ever before Me." - Isaiah 49:16

As you rise, take your place and pray and take action, expecting a shift to take place. You have moved into the miracle zone. He answers your prayer through the influence of the Holy Spirit upon people's hearts, and through sending angels about His work. But you and others will clearly see the hand of God moving. And glory will be given – not to a human instrument, or an angelic instrument – but all glory will go to Jesus. For you have stepped into your divine appointment.
