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 nothing will be impossible with God." (Luke 1:37)

God is filling you with fresh wonder and eyes to see the possibilities of developing a new Kingdom vision.

Suddenly things will change as God fills you with hope. You will feel the burden and weight you've been carrying lift suddenly, and you'll be able to breathe deeply and relax. God is shifting your perspective to allow you to see what's possible with Him -- that which seemed impossible before. Excitement and hope will bubble up inside of you as you shift into believing it's possible. From this place, it becomes easy to develop vision of the future and of what's possible through your Christ calling.

You receive fresh faith as you persistently affirm and meditate on the promises of God that are related to your vision.

God is shifting your vantage point so you can see that nothing is impossible with Him. You may feel hopeless or not know how to move forward. Allow God to shift your way of thinking. Give your burdens to Him. Trust Him to help you and move on your behalf. Spend some time in His presence focusing on fruit-bearing for His Kingdom and watch what He does!
