SACRIFICE Act10v1-4, 1There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, 2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. 3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. 4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.The Holy Spirit can blow like a mighty rushing wind as recorded in Acts 2:1-14. Occasionally, the Holy Spirit has to move speedily to intervene, especially when things are about to get out of hand, just as in Judges 15:14:“And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.”
When an urgent miracle is needed, the Holy Spirit moves speedily, which is frequent in the arena of those who have made sacrifices in building up their relationship with God through the holy spirit speak His language. As you build momentum speaking in tongues, the wind of the Holy Spirit and His power will begin to build up within you. When you have felt the wind and power strongly within you, let it out by speaking a word into that situation and you will see changes.
However, do not wait for a dangerous situation before you begin to call upon the Holy Spirit to move speedily. Many times, when challenges come, they don’t give enough time for speaking in tongues. Make speaking in tongues a lifestyle. Speak in tongues for at least one hour every day. Build up the wind of the Holy Spirit in your inner man so frequently and fervently that every word that comes out of your mouth is fire. When a man of God speaks to situations in public and things begin to change, that man must have spent time building up the wind of the Holy Spirit within himself privately.
When you have the mighty rushing wind of the Holy Spirit within you, every decree you make is accomplished speedily. Make speaking in tongues a lifestyle. It is a pathetic thing to be called a child of the most powerful being in the world and not have any power. Every day as I go out on prayer walks, I am building the wind of the Holy Spirit within me by speaking in tongues for hours. Start today, the Holy Spirit will take over and make it your lifestyle
Behind every Glory is a story of sacrifice. The birth of anything great will show in the sacrifice paid to achieve it. You will never achieve anything noteworthy by just wishing it, you must pay the price for it. And anything you’re not ready to sacrifice for will eventually be the sacrifice. The world you live in will never know you anymore than your sacrifice. Whatever you don’t have is what you have not paid the price to get. It is your dream, not you that determines the size of your sacrifice, and the bigger your dream, the bigger your sacrifice. Sacrifice is a divine order.
God’s grace is sufficient for you.
You must arm yourself with this mindset, every goal you set must have a deadline and you must make sure that your goals are so big and be ready to pay the sacrifice it require
