Hunger For God

Posted 11-16-2023 at 06:01 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1

Faith is stronger than belief. To believe is to give intellectual assent; to have faith is to be inseparable from the object of your devotion. Belief can be changed or lost by a more persuasive argument. True faith is so much a part of the person it can only be taken by death.

REASONING VS. SILENCE

November 16, 2023 – Exhortation

Posted 11-16-2023 at 12:54 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

In every new season, you must embrace change. Sometimes, you get in such a rut and routine in where you are going and what you are doing, that you lose the ability to adapt and change in the midst of changing situations. When you encounter roadblocks or detours, you don't always perceive that the Lord might be in your midst, bringing change to your direction.

You'll be driving in a new way in days ahead. You'll be moving down a stretch you've never moved down before, so watch the...

Our Best Days

Posted 11-15-2023 at 09:23 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

You know there are things you are doing now that are temporary. You are doing them only until you find the thing God wants you to do, the real work you were meant to do. When the fire reaches your core, you will trash all the vestiges of mundane, tiresome, powerless living.

Our best days are yet to come! God sent us to do a job and we're going to reap because He is the one who sent us to do it! When we launch out intoHis purpose for our life we're going to catch what we need to catch,...

Breaking Free From Following Others

Posted 11-15-2023 at 06:26 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Ephesians 4:1 - "As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received."

Observing others can help us set the bar of excellence high for ourselves. But at some point, there must be a breaking point -- where one respects, admires and learns from others but then turns inward to be what God called him to be.
