Spiritual Growth

  1. Daily Devotional - March 28, 2020

    Acts 2:38 - "Peter said to them, 'Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.'" The repenting you did six years ago won't put you in the place of Glory today. If we'll keep ourselves in a state of repentance, If we'll continue to daily consider ourselves dead to sin and get right with our brothers and sisters in Christ, then in this day of Glory, God will work wonders through us. The...
  2. SPEAKING BY FAITH

    2 Corinthians 4:13 - "We have the same spirit of faith as he (the psalmist) who wrote, 'I have believed and therefore have spoken.' We too believe, and therefore we speak.'" To speak by faith is simply to speak words that agree with the word of God instead of the circumstances around you. It's speaking from your spirit instead of from your mind, The Bible tells us that God uses words to "call those things which be not as though they were." (Romans 4:17) Hebrews 4:12 - For the Word of God...
  3. Daily Devotional - March 27, 2020

    Psalm 73:25 - "Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you." Because God alone is God, and the only one who is truly adorable, He has the right to claim us wholly for Himself. Without an appropriate surrender our part, He cannot manifest His power. As fully as God gives Himself to us, so fully does He desire that we give ourselves to Him. Ask Him to establish in you His purpose for your life -- entirely committed to God! How wonderful the grace that calls us...
  4. RECEIVING HIS BREATH

    Zechariah 10:7 - "And they...shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine..." Joy and praise together release strength on the inside of you and power on the outside. Psalm 22:3 says God inhabits our praises. When God's presence begins to come into our midst, our enemies fall back. they can't stand the presence of God. You know what happens when people drink wine -- they lose their inhibitions. That's what happened to the disciples on the day of Pentecost. They...
  5. RECEIVING HIS BREATH

    John 20: 21-22 "So Jesus said to them again, 'Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.' And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.'" Many believers are searching as if they lost their spiritual reception and they need a fresh breath from God. Job 33:4 "The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life." The word "breath" in the Old Testament is translated from the word "ruach," and in the New...
  6. ASCENDING THE LORD'S MOUNTAIN

    "It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and it shall be lifted up above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it," - Micah 4:1 Climbing or ascending the Lord's mountain means that we: have a passionate hunger and growing love for the Father, develop the mind of Christ, listen to and obey the Spirit's prompting on a daily basis, and are mature sons of God in the process of becoming friends of...
  7. Albert Finch Ministry - Daily Devotional - March 25, 2020

    Luke 2:19 - "But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart." Sit back, relax, ponder, and watch God work things out. People who are always fighting run the risk of dying early from strokes and heart attacks. Refocus on God and His purpose for your life. Every battle is not yours to fight, and you don't want to wear yourself out going after every issue. Remembering what God has called you to do and why, can help you keep your mind on the main thing. Peace helps you refocus...
  8. RECLAMATION OF DESTINY

    "The vats will overflow with the new wine and oil. Then I will make up to you for the years that the swarming locust has eaten." - Joel 2:24,25 Many are trapped in a great pit — the pit of despair, of sin, of compromise, of failure and hopelessness. The Great Shepherd extends His hand to pull OUT desperate souls, giving them a second chance and making all things NEW! God desires to restore all that the locust has eaten in your life! He will give you double for your trouble and turn your...
  9. GOD IS MY DEFENSE

    Romans 8:33 -- "Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies." Mark 15:3 -- "And the chief priest accused Him of many things, but He answered nothing." Why didn't Jesus defend Himself? The reason: to remain under His Father's judgment and thus His protection. When we refuse to defend ourselves we are hidden under the hand of God's grace and judgment. There is no safer place. In contrast, those who defend themselves come under the jurisdiction of their accusers...
  10. Albert Finch Ministry - Daily Devotional - March 24, 2020

    Ecclesiastes 6:12 - "For who knows what is good for a man during his lifetime, during the few years of his futile life? He will spend them like a shadow. For who can tell a man what will be after him under the sun?" It is better to have never been born than to live and not fulfill the purpose for which you were given life. This truth is echoed in this scripture. In essence, when you become aware of the calling of God in Christ that resides within you, you are obligated to release that...
  11. ALIGNING WITH ETERNAL TRUTH

    "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." - Genesis 1:27 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The enemy seeks to make a weakened Christian a pawn in his game, as he manipulates and attempts to bring harm to the family of God. When we believe in our identity in Christ God declares over us, we are strengthened and built up in the...
  12. Seeking Communion - March 24, 2020

    John 8:36 - "If the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." Loose yourself from all entanglements, soul ties, dead works, wrong relationships, wrong mindsets. Break free from everything that hinders the work of His Spirit in your lives. No weights, no cords, no bindings, no tubes connected or having an access point into your lives. Be free from all false expectations, man's expectations, religious expectations; every expectation that does not come from the hope and...
  13. Daily Devotional - March 23, 2020

    Psalm 103:19-21 - "The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His Kingdom rules over all. Bless the Lord, you His angels, who are mighty, and do His commands, and obey the voice of His Word. Bless the Lord, all you His hosts; you servants who do His pleasure." Sometimes you face resistance and numerous setbacks and you don't believe that your prayers are effective. Warfare in the heavenlies can delay answered prayer. Your breakthrough of miracles, blessings, favor, answered...
  14. TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE WAY I TALK

    Genesis 3:1 - "Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he (Satan) said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, 'You shall not eat from every tree of the garden'"? OBSERVATION: It is my responsibility to see that my thinking, believing and speaking are right. If I don't take that responsibility, the devil is going to think my thoughts for me. He'll actually have me believing what he wants me to believe, and...
  15. FULFILLING THE CALL TO GLORY

    God will use pressure to perfect us as we come to know and understand His purpose for our life! He promises to even use the plans of the enemy and turn them around for our good! And, the more that we are perfected, the more we reveal God's glory GOD'S GLORY IN US Everywhere we go, we see and experience God's glory. King David the psalmist wrote: "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands" (Psalm 19:1). Then also consider what the prophet Isaiah wrote in...
