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 24, 2024

Posted 05-24-2024 at 04:13 PM by Albert Finch


"You will keep him at perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You." - Isaiah 26:3

If you have never used your mind to place yourself before God, begin to do it now. There is no reason to wait for God to come to you. You must turn your thoughts nd your eyes away from the face of idols and look to Him and be saved (Isaiah 45:22).

You should seek to apprehend and live out of the ascended life in Christ in your daily walk and communion, thereby rejecting the self absorbed, barren, unprofitable manner of living you see exhibited in the presently existing Laodicean culture.



"For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God." - Romans 8:19-21

He designed you, inside and out, to be a vessel. There is a measure of God's glory that has become your responsibility to release on the earth. The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. You have access to heavenly blessings and power here on earth.

You have a PURPOSE on the earth, and He longs to release His glory through you. However, you will never find your true CALLING in Christ as long as you are trying to pretend to be more like that person or this person, thereby limiting the flow of what He wants to do through you.
There is a move of God in the earth that only you can fulfill. Creation is groaning in anticipation of you releasing all that glory that God packed on the inside of you.

AFFIRMATIONS:
The Kingdom of God is increasing in me as I become moved to help others advance their spiritual lives.

I am the glory of His holy presence.

I am rivers of His glory.
