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)

Joshua 1:9 - "..,Be strong and courageous! Do Not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

Courage is on the rise! A new breed of daring is upon us. BE READY FOR A SPIRIT OF BOLDNESS AND MIGHT TO COME UPON YOU. You will arise in new boldness as anointed courage comes upon you as you gain ground for fruit bearing resulting from Kingdom exploits. Unprecedented harvest is breaking out and you are anointed, appointed, and called into such a time as NOW. Your anointed courage is shifting history.

There is a grace to bring our petitions before God and actually pray them out! Pray, speak out, contend, and decree, but ask God for what you want regarding your Christ calling. Religious thinking would try and hinder or squash our freedom to just come before God and boldly ask, activating our faith. Don't get caught up in perfectionism, timidity, niceties or a dutiful, religious, "trying to get it right" way of praying, but just pray boldly! Be authentic. Be specific. Be bold.

The enemy has entrapped a people to think that speaking out will diminish their voice and influence. The opposite is true. Partnering with unbelief diminishes influence. Partnering with truth (making the Word Rhema to your spirit) and God's voice increases influence.

"Decree a thing" and see it established (Job 22:28) is imperative in this season. Our voice MUST establish Kingdom change. We must declare, decree, and announce breakthrough and promise in our lives and ministry to help others move forward in their spiritual lives, thereby, advancing His Kingdom. We must speak it out. We must ask and decree.
