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)

Releasing God's Wisdom

Posted 04-17-2024 at 03:02 AM by Albert Finch

"I was asleep but my heart was awake, A voice! My beloved was knocking" - Song of Solomon 5:2


Passion – Immersion – Revelation – Creativity

The best way to prepare for His revelation is to: immerse yourself in Scriptures concerning the topic at hand and to read books by others who have pursued the topic.

Use journaling to ask God to show you the insights you need to master the experience.

Go to sleep pondering the things you are learning, and as you lie in bed, you ask the Holy Spirit to grant you insight and revelation as you sleep.

We know from scripture that our spirit stays awake all night and works on whatever we ask it to (Song of Solomon 5:2).

When you awake in the morning -- the heart downloads the revelation it received during the night. When the flow is done, the devotional time is over.

Repeat the same steps each day until full revelation, mastery, and true knowledge on the topic are yours.

Follow the Spirit's flow wherever it takes you.
Expect to experience knowledge, wisdom and insight beyond your natural abilities, for God is revealing ways of bearing fruit that remains for His Kingdom.

"I will stand on my guard post and station myself on the rampart; and I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me, and how I may reply when I am reproved. Then the Lord
answered me and said, 'record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time.'" - Habakkuk 2:1-3
