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)

Living In The High Calling

Posted 03-15-2024 at 10:07 PM by Albert Finch


"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." - Philippians 1:6

Anytime that you are living outside of your calling, it is like being enslaved to the very thing that you are living according to at that moment.

You may be like Joseph in the prison, who was favored by his father and had a big dream.

Egypt represents the worldly system. Many people don't recognize that the calling on your life (the dream you've been having) needs a breakthrough.

When Joseph was reunited with his brothers, he said, "What you intended for evil, God has turned to good" (see Genesis 50:20). Listen to what God says to you when it comes to your identity ("Christ in you the hope of glory" - Colossians 1:27). The voice of the Lord is over the sound of many waters and breaks the cedars of Lebanon (Psalm 29:5). It is time to get out of where you are right now, and step into where you are supposed to be.

ALTERNATIVE DESTINATION


Many of us are in an alternative destination right now. We are trying to figure out where it is we are supposed to be and where we are to go. But where you are, looks different than where you know you're supposed to be, what you're supposed to be doing, and what you're supposed to be going towards.

Jonah was supposed to go somewhere and deliver a message, but he didn't want to. He ended up on his way to an alternative destination (Jonah 2:1-10). Being delivered from where you are at is as simple as doing what you were originally asked to do.

LIVE IN YOUR DIVINE IDENTITY

If you are stuck right now and feel like you are going through difficulties, the key to your breakthrough is coming to understand your Christ identity through affirming and meditating on the epistles of Paul. You will be seasoning your soul and spirit to receive the revelation you need to breakout into your Christ calling. .

God is not done with you yet. Where you are right now does not dictate or determine where you will finish. If there is anything about you that is contrary to the divine identity within you, God will bring it into perfection through and by His love.

Live! Live the life that you were meant to live. Live to the high calling that's been placed upon you, and live according to the destiny that is on your life today.

THE CALL TO GREATNESS

There is a preparation time that has to take place, growing in maturation in the things of the spirit and in the natural. They are like the young David, anointed to be king, but right back to the fields taking care of sheep. This generation was anointed and called to greatness before its time and we've been in the fields, tending sheep, and fighting off the bears and the lions. But God says, "If you cry out to Me and return to who it is that you are supposed to be and repent, you will find grace, favor, safety and provision for where you are right now and where you will be going." (God’s purpose for your life)

It is time to speak to your ruins! It is time to speak to the dry bones that are in the valley of your soul and life (Ezekiel 37:3-14) . Prophesy that they shall live again and that the breath of the Lord shall be upon them. It is time to prophesy that muscle, sinew, tissue and organs shall be upon them again, and that they shall breathe, once again.

Live! Live the life that you were meant to live. Live to the high calling that's been placed upon you, and live according to the destiny that is on your life today.
