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)

God has a Christ calling for your life and He is watching over His words concerning you. He is promising to bring the details of your fulfillment together. You are breaking free from the dead-end future that has been warring against your mind and focus.

In Hebrews 4 we are encouraged to mix our faith with the Word of the Lord and enter into our Promised Land. This Promised Land is a land full of promises as well as a place of rest and renewal so you will be effective in bearing fruit that remains for God's Kingdom. You are crossing over the border right now from the land of limitation and into new frontiers.

You realize that as New Covenant Believers that this land is not a simple piece of real estate. You rest in Jesus and the finished work at the Cross. Tiredness and weariness of your "Egypt" season is ending. Slumber is breaking and you are coming into renewed strength and vision concerning your next Christ calling assignment.

Contend -- just as Israel had to go to war for their Promised Land, you also face an enemy in your territory. The foreboding spirit is a lying, demonic spirit that falsely prophesies to you! It speaks totally opposite to what God speaks concerning you and your destiny. It is a stronghold that is directly connected to the occult. This means that a foreboding spirit attempts to hinder revelation. He will attempt to distract your focus from expecting breakthrough to an expectation of bleak hopelessness. You are coming into clarity and will know the voice of the Holy Spirit and disregard the voice of the enemy that is trying to sidetrack you.

When God points out any area into which we are to begin to prophesy, He gives us the power to shift what appears impossible. You are stepping into the new and wide-open space God has ordained for you to inhabit. You are encouraged that your time is NOW, or TODAY, "and that while it is still today you are to possess what God has given to you!" (see Hebrews 4:1-6). God is mantling you to speak your future into existence – to speak to what appears cut off and lost, God will breathe into your situation, yes, but His ways of bringing things together might challenge your mindset.
