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)

Unlocking God's Promises In Your Life

Posted 05-20-2024 at 01:18 AM by Albert Finch

The key to unlocking the fulfillment of God's promises in your life is learning to decree God's will! While it seems simple, decrees of the Lord give voice to and establish His will. These Godly decrees are like arrows of accuracy that break through every obstacle you face. By understanding the power of His word, His purpose for you, and your authority as a king and priest, you will be able to Decree His will, with boldness for breakthrough to your place of blessing.


When you give voice to His word by decreeing His will over your life, you are unleashing the power that created the universe.

In Genesis God creates the world with the authority of His word.
Job 22:28 says "You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God's favor] shall shine upon your ways." This key, of decree, is given to you by the master creator, the ultimate authority. Learn to use it! Decree His will and see it established for you.


Understand God's CALLING on your life. Ask, knock and seek (Matthew 7:7) until you apprehend the PURPOSE for which you were created to bear fruit that lasts (John 15:16) for God's Kingdom. We need to realize our Christ identity, our right standing with God, and how to walk in the Spirit.

"Do not be drunk with wine...but be filled with the Spirit" (Ephesians 5:18).

His presence is a place of hunger for fresh bread from the WORD. There the Word comes alive and mysteries are revealed as the WORD becomes like fire in the bones. Within us arises a holy boldness to decree the WORD of God to shift the unseen realm and break down every barrier of the enemy with the power of the Word.
Don't allow yourself to be discouraged, and brought down, by the conditions of the world around you. Learn to decree his will and advance and occupy the Kingdom for His glory.

Matthew 5:14 says "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden." Our purpose as this light is continued in Mathew 5:16(AMP) - "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven."

The Lord wants to turn up the brilliancy of His glory in your life that, as you develop and implement vision around God's purpose for your life, there will be such good works through your personal ministry to others that He will be glorified. You are the light up on the hill.


As you grow and mature you will operate out of Kingdom Authority. Revelations 5:10 - "And You have made them a kingdom (royal race) and priests to our God, and they shall reign [as kings] over the earth!"
You are here to rule and reign. The battle you face is in the unseen realm. You are to have more faith in God's power than that of the enemies. Because you walk in Kingdom Authority you can decree a thing and it will be established for you.


Make your decrees with boldness knowing that you have authority through your Christ identity.. Use your Kingdom Authority in the mighty name of Jesus.

Seize opportunities to disciple other Believers into their Christ identity, their right standing with God, and how to walk in the Spirit. Declare and decree His words of life as you bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom. Give and it will come back to you FULL MEASURE, pressed down, shaken together, and RUNNING OVER!
