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)

"He refreshes and restores my soul (life); He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake." (Psalm 23:3, AMP)

If you are a Believer who is experiencing discouragement, wondering if God is ever going to send you a breakthrough, do you not know that your dry place has a purpose? Don't listen to the lies of the evil one, telling you that things will never change. He is a liar! Jesus Himself was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. It was that desert place that became the Lord's launching pad into His public ministry. You, too, will come out of your dry desert and be launched into your Christ calling!

God says to you now, "Take authority over the spirit of fear. Fear is not a feeling. It is a spirit, and it is from the evil one -- let your faith arise."

"'Yes indeed, it won't be long now -- GOD'S Decree. 'Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won't be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. (Amos 9:13-14) MSG
