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)

Daily Meditations And Affirmations - May 22, 2024

Posted 05-22-2024 at 09:36 PM by Albert Finch


"I am already being poured out as a drink offering." - 2 Timothy 4:6

Are you ready to be poured out as an offering?

It is an act of your will, not your emotions.
"Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar." - Psalm 118:27
You must be willing to be placed on the altar and go through the fire; willing to experience what the altar represents -- burning, purfication, and separation for only one purpose -- the elimination of every desire and affection not grounded in or directed toward God.


But you don't eliminate it, God does. After you have gone through the fire, there will be nothing that will be able to trouble or depress you. When another crisis arises, you will realize that things cannot touch you as they used to do.

Tell God you are ready to be poured out as an offering, and God will prove Himself to be all you ever dreamed He would be.

We are to be continually taking ground for the Kingdom of God as we position ourselves in the place that He has called us to. As we continually experience His person our eyes are opened to see from His heavenly perspective.


If we choose not to heed the leading of the Spirit and become proactive in renewing our minds, it is possible that we will limit God's power and anointing from flowing through our lives because of un-renewed thinking patterns that we are still embracing.

You have the potential to believe impossibilities into possibilities.

"Everything is possible for him who believes." - Mark 9:23


AFFIRMATIONS:

I arise and walk in dominion power, and lay ahold of the promises of God. (Genesis 1:26)

I curse those things that don’t bear fruit for God in my life. (Mark 11:12)

I disciple Believers in season and out of season. I reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all patience others in their inheritance in Christ and their right standing with God. ( 2 Timothy 4:2)
