  1. Jesus said, "Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear" (Mark 4:9). He also said that His sheep hear His voice (John 10:27). Not hearing the Father speak, not understanding the voice of the Holy Spirit, is the root of many of life's problems. If we would only linger a little longer in His voice, then perhaps we would live great lives of blessing and purpose that yields fruit for the Kingdom instead of frustration. REMOVING THE BLOCKAGES -- WHAT KEEPS YOU FROM HEARING? There are blockages that keep us from hearing. Perhaps you have fears. Perhaps you don't believe that God will speak to you. Maybe you are convinced that hearing God is not for today. Maybe you believe that God speaks to others but not to you. Whatever the blockage is, it needs to be removed. The grace of God is such that He wants you to hear His voice more than you even want to listen. Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." He came for us. He saw us in our condition of deafness and blindness and sent His own Son in the earth to help us to see and hear again. He begins to remove the blockages even before we desire for them to be removed. That is grace. God who created the heavens and the earth wants to speak to us. In His voice there is creative power. When He spoke through Ezekiel an entire valley of dry bones rose back to life and formed a mighty army. That is the power of hearing. When you hear and you speak what God says, then He does great things . UNPLUG YOUR SPIRITUAL EARS! Today, believe the Lord to unplug your spiritual ears and to tune you into the frequency of Heaven's voice. Begin to walk with Him and talk with Him and hear Him call you His own. The grace of God is such that He always speaks to the hungry. He always opens ears to hear. So just thank Him because your breakthrough is coming. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  2. Hebrews 13:5 - "He has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'” When you fall don't waste your time trying to figure everything out. Your understanding will always be twisted when you are depressed and you will never see truth from that place. Depression is the deception that comes from seeing the world from your perspective. Truth comes from seeing the world through Jesus' eyes where He sits at the right hand of the Father. Those who abide in His presence will say "the whole earth is filled with His glory." When you fall short of the Lord's grace and sin entangles you, it is hard for you to come to Him. You must learn to always run to the Lord at such times, not away from Him. You repent towards heaven - you thank God for his forgiveness and for His guidance in showing you how to repent. You must not only seek His presence, but you must abide in His presence continually.

  3. As You Allow Him to Change You, He will Change Your Circumstances. The season of depression, confusion, lack, and sinful cycles is over. Don't look back -- Don't bring up the past -- It is under the Blood of Christ. Just as your sins have been forgiven forgive others. Let go of the bitterness and the regrets. Crucify your ego by going deeper into Him. Release the anger. He will work everything for good. Get ready to move into new realms of His glory. Every time you encounter His glory He is changing you. He is changing your thoughts. He is changing your perspective. He is increasing the power of His Spirit in you. He is anointing you to bring breakthroughs to others. Receive the fresh prophetic flow of His presence. Be refreshed. Receive an excitement for that which is coming. The future is full of adventure. Expect Him to do mighty things for nothing is impossible for those who believe! "The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope to which He has called you, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints." - Ephesians 1:18 ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  4. Colossians 3:2,3 - "Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God." If you think like the world thinks, you will act like the world acts. So control your thoughts bringing them into obedience to the Scriptures. Program your mind with the Word of God. The Word is spirit and is life. Don't let Satan deceive you into sacrificing the glory of God in your life for a few moments of self-indulgence and sin. Restrain your thought life. Affirm, meditate, and visualize the Word in your heart instead of selfish carnal thoughts. Keep your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  5. "that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, that the Christ may dwell, through faith, in your hearts, being rooted and founded in love, - Ephesians 3:16,17 As believers, we are rooted and grounded in His magnificent love (Ephesians 3:17). We have courage, the depth of which is confidence in the Lord. Today we declare that we will "Trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding; in all our ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct our path." - Proverbs 3:5,6 Truly the Lord will be strong on our behalf! This knowledge enables a deep courage within and causes us to be so anchored in His love that our hearts and minds are steadfast. Thus, we reach a place of focus that comes from being lead by the Lord. Holy perseverance is God-empowered boldness and courage that enables us -- deep within -- to persevere. One way to define perseverance is simply to "stay the course." This is a powerful blessing from the Lord that enables us to believe the impossible is possible. It is a work of the Holy Spirit within that enables us to have strength to stay the course, regardless of present circumstances or situations. This is what the prophet Isaiah wrote about: "Fear not (there is nothing to fear), for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My (victorious) right hand of rightness and justice...Isaiah 41:10 AMP In this passage, the Lord promises to be with us, to strengthen us, to keep us, and to hold us in a place of victory. The Hebrew meaning of the word STRENGTHEN is "to be strong, alert, courageous, brave, stout, bold, solid, hard." Here is a more in-depth look: a) to be strong, brave, bold b) to strengthen, secure (for oneself), make firm, make obstinate, assure c) to be determined, to make oneself alert, strengthen oneself, confirm oneself, d) to exhibit strength, be strong, feel strong You can stay the course because of the enabling of the strength of the Lord for you and in you! Expect the Holy Spirit to release an even greater strengthening deep within so that you will stand firm for the promises of the Lord to advance His purpose for your life and your family. As you lean into the Lord -- go from strength to strength with deep courage to believe for the impossible to be possible. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  6. Isaiah 54:2 - “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your ropes and strengthen your stakes." When you don't think there is more to where you currently are in God's purpose for your life, you become limited. You think this right here -- all I see -- is it. This type of thinking keeps you from exploring and discovering. It keeps you from stretching yourself and dreaming about other possibilities. If you want to meet God's calling in Christ on your life, you're going to have to believe there is more than what meets the eyes. You begin to choose to live like there is more by expecting more and praying for more wisdom and revelation (Ephesians 1:17,18). Kingdom destiny followers know that more is beyond, and they commit to scaling barriers or other walls put up by their minds -- or by others. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  7. Philippians 3:20 - "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;" As Christians, we are wonderfully privileged to have dual citizenship. We are citizens of earth and citizens of Heaven all at the same time! Many believe we receive our Heavenly citizenship only after we die. The Bible, however, illustrates how connected to Heaven we are while living on earth. For example: • When we pray on earth, our spirit manifests in Heaven before the throne of God. We read in Hebrews, "Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence" (Heb. 4:16). How, then, can we approach the throne of God in Heaven while we are still here on earth? It happens in the place of prayer – the place where Heaven and earth unite. • When King David prayed to the Lord, "May my prayer be set before You like incense" (Psalm 141:2), we see the answer to that prayer in Revelation 5. This powerful throne room scene depicts the four living creatures and 24 elders, each with a harp and a golden bowl of incense, and these "golden bowls full of incense – are the prayers of God's people" (v.8). • Jesus specifically taught us to pray for God's Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven (Matthew 6:8,10). Although Heaven is a future reality, as a result of our prayers we are seeing and experiencing increasing deposits of Heaven on earth today in the form of signs, wonders, miracles, and supernatural activity. Being citizens of Heaven puts us into direct spiritual conflict on the earth. King Jesus is leading a Kingdom invasion through us and displacing what used to belong to satan. Satan lost his authority over the earth at the Cross, but he didn't lose his power. He still uses his power against us, but we have the name and authority of Jesus to overcome it. These conflicts appear in many different forms and dimensions, and if we are not aware, we will fail to connect that they are rooted in the spiritual realm. We will erroneously believe we are dealing with just a natural problem, but not be able to solve our problem because it needs a spiritual remedy. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  8. "He that believeth on me....out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." - John 7:38 The very life of the risen Christ in us is moving us to do His will. We are partakers of the divine nature to manifest the life of Jesus to the world. "Others mocking said, 'these men are full of new wine.'" - Acts 2:13 "New wine" - a new order, new inspiration, new manifestation, a new creation. It is God's mind to fill us with that wine, to make us ready to burst forth with new rivers, fresh energy, no tired feeling. What shall we do? Believe -- stretch out -- press on -- let there be a new entering in -- a new passion to have it. We must drink deeply of the new wine, that the ones God has given us to influence and disciple may be satisfied and find satisfaction too. "Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself." - Philippians 3:21 The body being so operated by the Spirit in the process of changing through affirming and meditating on His Word until we are like unto Him. Being filled with the Spirit we are so hungry, so thirsty, that nothing will satisfy us but seeing Jesus. Getting more thirsty every day, more dry every day, until the floods come, and the Master passes by, ministering unto us and through us, and through us the same life, the same inspiration, that as He is, so are we in this world. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  9. Hebrews 4:16 - "So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most." When we sin, we don't need to punish ourselves, because Jesus already took our punishment and He now offers us His mercy. He is extending his mercy to you right now, but you must believe it and receive it in order for it to benefit you. Don't turn away because you know you don't deserve it. Receive it and let it make you fall more in love with Jesus than ever before. Our sin will never exceed God's mercy because where sin abounds, grace abounds much more (Romans 5:20). Affirmation: Christ and I are one. I can never be separated from Christ, from whom comes all my supply -- all the power, wisdom, prosperity and health. As He is so am I in this world!

  10. "If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?" - Jeremiah 12:5 NIV Have you been stumbling? Have you been stumbling with the footmen? Well the Lord is wanting to upgrade you to the horses. It's time for you to compete with the horses! The Lord is moving you up from running with the footmen to now racing with the horses. God is about to bring you up to the next level of things. He's bringing you to a whole new ball game in 2020. He is bringing you to a new tier. RUNNING WITH THE HORSES You will be moved from running with the men to running with the horses. You will move from the natural to the supernatural. You will go from the first heavens to the third. You are being promoted. Discouragement is fleeing from you. Sadness is leaving you. The disappointments and the depressing lies of the devil are being extinguished. The Holy Spirit is strengthening you with fresh revelation of your calling in Christ, and you will now move forth in the spirit of power and might! It's time for you to ride on with the Rider on the white horse. Get renewed and get refreshed, for the Lord is about to accelerate you into the best season of your life! ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  11. Philippians 3:16 - "I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Paul spoke about the desire to attain. There is no standing still. We are renewed by the Spirit. We never get into a new place until we come out of the old one (Genesis 12:1-4). We must see revelation of God's purpose for our life and learn about who we are in Christ and our right standing with God. We can never be satisfied to stay where we are spiritually, for the truth continues to enlighten us. We must move on, or we will perish. We must be obedient to the Holy Spirit who guides us. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  12. Ephesians 2:8 - "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God." Paul says that grace saves us "through faith." Faith unlocks the power of grace and releases it to function in our world--and faith itself is another gift of God. The difference between both gifts are, the grace-gift must be activated by the faith-gift. WE MUST: 1. Believe that God is "rich in mercy". 2. We must accept as true that God loves us with "great love." 3. We must not doubt that He atoned for "our transgressions." 4. We must be confident we are "alive together with Christ." John 1:16 - "For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace." The same grace that turns our hearts toward Christ continues to work in us, transforming even our sufferings and trials into virtue and power. We've been taught that grace is God's unmerited favor, which of course, it is. Yet unmerited favor is only one aspect of grace. In reality, grace is God's promise to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Romans 4:3 - "Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness." When Abraham "believed God" it meant that he believed what God had promised would come to pass. God promised to do for Abraham what Abraham and Sarah could not fulfill on their own. This is the glory of God's grace: it accomplishes what is otherwise impossible for us. OBSERVATION: Grace not only chooses me, saves me eternally and blankets my life with mercy, but grace also works in me realities unattainable without divine help. Zechariah 4:7 -- "What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of 'Grace, grace to it!'" Zerubbabel had mountains in his life that were too much for him. He had a task that was beyond his abilities. Yet God promised His Spirit would help, and when it was done, multitudes would be shouting "Grace, grace" at the finished work. AFFIRMATIONS: I don't postpone my breakthrough -- I believe that God's grace is here to release me! I don't run from the mountains in my life -- I face them with faith -- and shout "Grace, grace" to them and let God make my mountains into "a plain." I speak to the mountain of discouragement, sickness or financial need -- GRACE, GRACE! ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  13. James 3:17 - "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy." As we speak the tender mercies of the Word over a problem, our faith begins to rise up within us. We then release words of faith and plant seeds of power. These seeds then begin to grow up and become greater than the problems. They begin to bear fruit -- fruit of deliverance, healing, miracles, love, joy, and peace. Souls are drawn into the Kingdom as Jesus is lifted up by the words of our mouth. James 3:17 says that the Word is without hypocrisy. That means when we call things that be not as though they were, we're not lying or being hypocrites. We are not speaking lies or deceptions. We are speaking seeds of faith -- the seeds that start the process of God's operations in our lives will change our entire surroundings. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  14. Galatians 1:16 - "To reveal his Son in me, that I might present Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood." Many believers have lost the glory because they have been taken up with the natural. If we are going to accomplish in the Spirit the thing God has purposed for us in 2020, we can never turn again to the flesh. If we believers are to go forth and fulfill God's PURPOSE for our life, the Holy Spirit must be constantly filling us and moving upon us until our whole being is on fire with the presence and power of God -- walking in the divine likeness, having no confidence in the flesh, but growing in the grace and knowledge of God, and going on from one state of glory to another. The believer that is a "partaker of the divine nature" has come into a relationship where God imparts His divine mind for the comprehension of His love and of the fellowship of His Son. We are only powerful as we know that source, we are only strong as we behold who we are in Christ and all the wonderful things and graces of the Spirit. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
  15. Proverbs 3:5 - "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Your self-nature is overactive, impulsive, and always striving for something just outside your reach. If you give up all those things that provoke your curiosity and set your mind spinning, you will have more than enough time to spend with God. God, working within your spirit, produces a calm and faithful heart that the world cannot touch. Pray within yourself all day long. Live in prayer -- let it touch everything that you do. Be aware of God's presence within you -- even when you are busy. The important thing is not to listen to yourself, but silently listen to God. Talk little and do much, without caring to be seen. Do this and peace will be yours. Colossians 3:2 - “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things” ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com/
