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)

April 2, 2024 - Exhortation

Posted 04-02-2024 at 12:49 AM by Albert Finch


"For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you." - Isaiah 60:2

He's rising upon you right now! You have purpose in His Kingdom; what you do with this seed and in 2024 will be determined by you. If you keep the seed (your destiny, business, family) in your hands, God cannot activate the fullness of His blessings and goodness.


This year, determine in your soul (your mind, will, and emotions) that this is the year you succeed in all that you do. Speak to the mountains and the circumstances in your life. Decree and speak into those things that have not yet happened that they will. Many have settled for the status quo for far too long, barely getting by.


This new season will be just that: new and refreshing. You will step into God's purpose for your life.
