Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

Albert Finch Ministry - Daily Devotional - August 31, 2019

 Luke 17:21 - "...for indeed, the Kingdom of God is within you."


God doesn't want you to be conscious of the lack in your natural circumstances. He doesn't want you to live by how much you earn or how much you have in the bank.


God wants you to be conscious of the abundance of resources in His Kingdom. Jesus said that "the Kingdom of God is within you." this means that the Kingdom of God is not some physical place. It is within you and it is where the abundance of resources is.


So if you want to experience abundance in your life, be conscious first of the Christ-life inside you. Then what is inside you will become a reality on the outside because His Kingdom is within you!

 John 15:5 - "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."


Do you ever feel that no matter what you do, you should be doing something more? The truth is that no matter what we do it will never be enough, and that is why God sent His Son. He is not only enough, He is more than enough!


Our goal should be to increase in understanding of our inheritance in Christ and our Right Standing with God and avoid doing things in order to try to obtain from God what He gives us freely by His grace.


Let us always do what we do for God to show our love for Him, and never to buy His love for us. Enter the rest of God, and refuse to live under the pressure of constantly feeling that you need to earn approval in order to be acceptable to God.

RUSHING IN OF ETERNITY

 Haggai 2:9 - "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts."

Hebrews 6:1 - "Therefore let us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ, advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity."

Nearly 2000 years ago, the author of the book of Hebrews exhorted the Jewish Christians to leave the elementary teachings and principles about Christ, urging them to press forward into maturity (through coming to understand their inheritance in Christ, their right standing with God, and learning to walk in the Spirit).

Today as we are DISCIPLED into a higher life in Christ we come before the very throne of God with boldness and confidence - stepping into maturity - as we encounter new realms of the Glory of God.


Psalm 149:6 - "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand...."

We are being commissioned by the Lord to step into new realms of Glory through worship and high praise. As we do this together, we are going to see the Kingdom of Power and Glory made manifest. God's Kingdom is taking dominion upon the earth and is displacing every stronghold of the enemy.

Through high praise, we destroy the plans of the enemy and bring to earth new realms of Glory not yet revealed. We are stepping into a realm of timelessness where the miracles in His presence are being made known to us. As we continue Heavenward, we are breaking the constraints of the natural realm and shaking off old paradigms.

The doors of Heaven are opening wider than we've ever seen before and we are witnessing the unfolding of the scrolls of DESTINY. Both the seen and unseen worlds are being changed from one degree of glory to another, and all are being transformed by the ever-increasing Glory of God.


QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:

How much time do I spend each day praising God out loud?

Do I believe that praising and worshiping God will lead me into new realms of glory?


PRAYER:

Father, let me continually see Your goodness pass before me. Jesus wash Your Bride with Your Word -- sanctify me so that I will be a resting place for Your holy habitation; You will present to Yourself - the Church in all her Glory. Holy Spirit, teach me how to move and operate in the realm of Glory as this time of acceleration is upon us, that I may arise in faith, in the experiential knowledge of the Son of God, with unparalleled demonstrations of the Kingdom of Power and Glory. In Jesus' name, Amen.


AFFIRMATIONS:

The Lord blankets me with His tangible, manifest presence, and cloud of glory.

 

God is enlightening the eyes of my heart so that I would experientially know the inheritance of glory that lies within the saints.

 

I declare the word of the Lord and see it supernaturally manifest.

 1 Thessalonians 5:19 - "Do not restrain the Holy Spirit;"


When we are "sowing to the Spirit" - (Galatians 6:8), we are exposing ourselves to the presence of God whether we feel it or not.


As focusing upon the Holy Spirit becomes the habit of our souls, we receive the wonderful anointing spoken of in Hebrews, "who makes His...ministers a flame of fire" (Hebrews 1:7). The flaming heart of Christ ignites our hearts -- Fire begets fire.


The holy flame is relentless and consuming. It will ignite a focused soul, even though it may be barren, and release deep emotions of hunger for Jesus.

Seeking Communion - August 29, 2019

 God's glory is all around us. We often do not take the time to witness God's glory and meditate on his holiness.

We are consumed with what we want and what is wrong, we don't take time just to cry out to the Lord and appreciate His glory. We should praise God for what he has already done!


Isaiah 6:3 - "And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory."


If we cry out one to another saying Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
We must continually cry out Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come (Revelation 4:8).

We must humble ourselves before the Lord remembering who we are in Christ and who God is. We are servants in need of a Savior and God is Holy and the whole earth is full of His glory. What have we accomplished without His breath of life and His mercy?


Psalms 72:18-19 - Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory!
Amen and Amen!

 Exodus 12:13 - "The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you..."


It is the blood of Jesus alone that delivers you. If you think that it is because of your faith, then you will always be wondering "Do I have enough faith?"


When God sees that you see that it is the blood alone that saves, He calls that faith in the blood, and every plague will pass over you!


Every time you think that your deliverance depends partly on God and partly on you, you will not have a settled peace in your heart. But when you know that it is the blood alone that saves, you will have an unshakable peace.

DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 322

 "But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts." - Romans 13:14

Jesus walked in union with His Father. We too must do the same with Him. We only have true SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY to the degree that we are abiding in Him. The angels do not respect us and the demons do not obey us because of who we are, but because of who is in us.

The "sword" in scripture is indicative of the Word of promise. Presently, we are attempting to battle the enemy with our promises. It is the Lord's intent to make "US" the promise. We are to become the Living Word.

 

 

 

 

 

"What I tell you now in the gloom, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ears, proclaim from the housetops!" - Matthew 10:27


Are you in the dark just now in your circumstances, or in your life with God? Then remain quiet. Don't talk to other people about it; don't read books to find out the reason of the darkness, but listen and heed. If you talk to other people you cannot hear what God is saying.

AFFIRMATIONS:

The Spirit of the resurrected Christ living in me has disqualified me from the mundane and ordinary.

 

Faith qualifies me for the impossible.

 

Whatever my heart is set upon when I come to the Bible, will determine much of what I see in the Bible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Let the Spirit direct your lives, and do not satisfy the desires of the human nature." - Galatians 5:16


Scripture often refers to us a "vessels" of the Lord (Jeremiah 18). The one thing about being living vessels is that we leak. We need refilling with water and food, joy and love, affirmation, and communication. The same is especially true with the presence of the Lord in our lives through the Holy Spirit.

Kingdom people are led by the Spirit. We can experience an incredible stagnancy and/or burn out if we do not camp around the cloud of His glory.
If you find yourself feeling stagnant or unproductive, challenge yourself to step out in faith by praying for someone or discipling a new believer in their spiritual growth.

Praying The Psalms - 17

 As I open my mouth wide and sing for joy to God, my strength, He gives me abundant provision to satisfy my needs. (Psalm 81:1,10,16)


How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord. My heart and flesh sing for joy as I long for your presence. (Psalm 84:1,2)


I am blessed because I know my strength is in You, My Lord. My heart is one with You as I go from strength to strength. (Psalm 84:5,7)


My Lord is a sun and shield who gives grace and glory. You withhold no good thing from me because I trust in you. (Psalm 84:11,12)


You revive me, O God, when I am met with tribulation. I rejoice in your lovingkindness as you save me from my struggle. (Psalm 84:6,7,9)


I cry out to you Lord Jesus, all the day long. You preserve by soul and I live in your forgiveness. (Psalm 86:3,5)


You are gracious to me, O Lord, and make glad the soul of Your servant and give heed to my supplications. (Psalm 86:4,6)


I will glorify Your name, O Lord my God, with all my heart for Your are great and do wondrous miracles. (Psalm 86:10,12)


You, O Lord, are gracious to me and show abundance in lovingkindness and revelation of truth as you have helped me and comforted me. (Psalm 86:15:17)


In Your name, I rejoice all the day long as I confess my righteousness in Christ Jesus. (Psalm 89:16)

CALLED FOR GLORY

 Ephesians 2:10 - "For we are God's own workmanship, recreated in Christ Jesus, that we may do those good works which God predestined for us, that we should walk in them."

 

2 Corinthians 3:18 - "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."

 

Seeing His glory is more than just seeing His beautiful colors and majesty of His person. The glory of the Lord is described in a number of ways in Scripture, such as:
1. His Works
2. His Nature
3. His Power

By seeing His nature, we are transformed into the same nature.
By seeing His works, we are empowered to do His work.
By seeing His power we grow in the faith that releases His power.

 

 

GENERAL RULE: IF YOU ARE DRAWN TO A CERTAIN PART OF THE LORD'S NATURE, PURSUE IT!

1. If we are called to be a pastor or shepherd, we will perceive His glory as the Good Shepherd. A shepherd will tend to see Jesus' shepherding nature in everything Jesus did and will be transformed into that aspect of His glory by this.

2. Likewise, someone who is called to be a teacher will see Jesus' glory as the Teacher in everything He did, and this will transform and impart to them His teaching nature.

3. An evangelist will tend to see Jesus' glory in the Evangelist in all that He did, and they will be likewise transformed into that part of His nature.

 

 

As the Scriptures verify, we were known by God and CALLED by Him before the foundation of the world. When He made us, He made us with a purpose, and that CALLING in Christ is over and above our secular vocation:

1. If we are called to a teaching ministry, few things will be as rewarding as seeing people receive understanding about the Lord and His ways.

2. If we are called to a healing ministry, few things will be as rewarding as seeing someone healed.

3. If we are called to prophetic ministry, receiving revelation from the Lord will be one of the most fulfilling things that can happen to us, and so on......


QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:

1. What is it about Jesus that attracts me to Him the most?

 

2. What is it that He did that I would love to be able to do the most?

 

Affirmations:

BY KNOWING HIM, BEHOLDING HIM, AND FOLLOWING HIM, THERE IS AN IMPARTATION THAT RELEASES HIS AUTHORITY IN ME.

 

MY BASIC PURPOSE IS TO LOVE GOD, BE TRANSFORMED BY HIM, AND DO THE WORKS HE PREDESTINED FOR ME.

Albert Finch Ministry - Daily Devotional - August 27, 2019

 Colossians 1:27 - "To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."


When God made you in His likeness, He did not make you to look like Him. He made you to function like Him. That's what likeness literally means. When God created you, He made you to operate like Him. If you are not functioning like God, you are "malfunctioning" because God wired and designed you to function like Him.


How does God function? "Without faith it is impossible to please God" - Hebrews 11:6. God functions by faith. We were designed to operate by faith. Our potential, therefore, needs faith in order to be maximized.


Affirmation:

Since Christ is in me, my potential is everything that is in Christ.
