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)

Creating A Favorable Spiritual Climate

Posted 03-11-2024 at 08:22 PM by Albert Finch


"There is a season for everything, and a time for every event under heaven." - Ecclesiastes 3:1

We can't shift our seasons – God does that. But we can create a climate that invites Him to do the work in our hearts that prepares us for the next season.

After10 Days of praying in unity, "SUDDENLY (there was) a sound like a mighty rushing wind," and the 120 in the upper room were filled with the Spirit (Acts 2). When Paul and Barnabas experienced persecution for Christ's sake, SUDDENLY an earthquake rose up and opened the doors SUDDENLY to the jail (see Acts 16:26).

Suddenly you may shift into a promotion.

Suddenly you may shift from sickness to health.

Suddenly you may shift into greater authority in the spirit.

Suddenly you may shift from a dark night of the soul to greater revelation of Christ.

Suddenly you may shift from feelings of oppression to new levels of freedom.

Believe for the suddenlies in 2024. Expect them to happen. Wait with anticipation, but understand that you have to do your part.

Like the disciples in the upper room, you need to pray.

Like Paul and Barnabas in the prison, you need to praise.

In other words, you need to create a spiritual climate over your life that invites the Holy Spirit to work in your heart, in your life, and in your circumstances. Your climate change will eventually lead to a season shift that will bring a suddenly you could never make happen in your own strength.

Take heart in Isaiah 48:3: "I have declared the former things from the beginning and they went forth from My mouth, and I announced them. Suddenly I did them, and they came to pass."
