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)

Job 33:4, "The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life."

When God breathes in us and upon us, we are receiving His inspiration. Our goal in worship is not just to sing a song to God but to get to such a place of intimate connection that inspiration takes place where we receive a deposit from Heaven.

The result of being inspired by God brings us into alignment with His thoughts, His heart and brings a flow of true worship in our lives. He is looking for those who want to be "one" with Him in worship. God wants to enjoin Himself with us in such a way that Heaven on earth will be manifested. The voice of God being released through us in worship causes the angels of God to be activated, ushering a greater realm of His glory in our midst.

Prophetic worship is not only something that flows from our intimacy with the Lord, but also aids our lives and Christ calling through activating angels of breakthrough – it will be revolutionary for us giving us victory from glory to glory.

Where are you needing breakthrough? Spend time in that prophetic expression of worship both personally and holding all that concerns you before Him.

1 Corinthians 1:9, "God is faithful, and by Him you were called to the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord."
