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)

"For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed." (Roman 8:19)

You were made for this time. God will open up doors for you that no man can close, and that you will realize His dreams, purposes, and calling in your life. You are the missing piece that this world needs -- never believe the lie that you are not. God had confounding plans for you.

Keep believing. Have faith and have courage. You were made to shine. You are not alone, and the best is yet to come! There is something new emerging. The breaking of an old mold is taking place. Like a caterpillar in a cocoon, it is not comfortable. You can't see what is out there. It feels dark. Something is happening inside you and around you that does not feel like anything you've ever felt.

New oil is being released and is about to fill your life. All that you have longed for is inside of you. Sounds, light, songs, fragrance, and freedom are about to come alive in you and all around you. You are here to usher in the GLORY of the LORD that has never been seen before!

"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.....the LORD rises upon you and His glory appears over you." (Isaiah 60:1-2)

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)
