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)

The disciples were stuck in the middle of the sea, tormented by the winds and the waves crashing in all around them (Matthew 14:23-25). Could it be that you, too, are stuck in the center of a storm? Are you tormented? Are you full of fear. Fear is not a feeling or an emotion, but it is a spirit, and it is not from God.

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)

Have you been obedient to His voice—just as the disciples were when they climbed into the boat and started to the other side—only to have the contrary winds blow against you? The enemy has tried to convince you that God has abandoned you.

Instead, you are being set up for God to reveal Himself in a new way to you, performing a miracle you never dreamed was possible—all for the purpose of getting you unstuck!

Is the sound of heaven resonating in your heart flowing from a devoted relationship with God through His Spirit? Today you fight – you stand up and BELIEVE. Get ready for God to use the unexpected. Out of the storm and into your greatest breakthrough -- you are stepping into the supernatural realm.
