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)

Living In A Place Of Power And Strength

Posted 06-14-2024 at 10:28 PM by Albert Finch

Ephesians 3:16 in the Amplified reads, "May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His Glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the Holy Spirit {Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]"

Through understanding your Christ identity you can live in the God ordained anointing that brings strength to strength living in these times! The greater the challenges that arise to confront us the greater the favor, grace and power the Lord releases to and through us.

In Psalm 92:10, "But my horn (emblem of excessive strength and stately grace) You have exalted like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with Fresh OIL!"


Philippians 4:13 in the Amplified declares, "I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]. "

This is the glorious mind-set of an overcomer:

I'm ready!

This is what I am supposed to be doing regarding God's purpose for my life,

and this is where I am supposed to be!


You will be focused and strengthened as you seek to bear fruit for God’s Kingdom through witnessing Jesus (changing and equipping the minds and lives of others).

You will not be distracted,

You will move forward in your calling in Christ,

You will move up in your level of expectancy and resistance will not stop you because doubt will be vanquished;

You will release a shout that will bring down the mountain because His Word has been made Rhema in your spirit.

What a mighty anointing to have! The anointing for the revelation that brings impartation, which grants you access and brings about demonstration!

This is a place of "YES! in your spirit.

This is a holy, empowered position from which one engages a divine inner strength and surety without pride, but with holy confidence and boldness in the Holy Spirit.


Where once certain types of circumstances or settings intimidated you or where rejection beat you down - You discover the empowering infusion of Christ in you. And you feel and know that you are ready to bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom.

This is a place of the supernatural empowerment of grace to function in the destiny He is releasing you into.
