SECURED IN THE WILL OF GOD! Part II

 

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light…” 1Peter 2:9

Every child of God that now is, or is to come, has been chosen. We are a chosen generation fashioned by God forHIS PLEASURE and Joy, a royal priesthood whose sole purpose is to love and serve the King in this hour—to serve His will, His purposes, and His agenda.

This question must be settled in our hearts. Are you chosen? God knew you before, you have been blueprinted from before time. Our core identity is CHOSEN IN CHRIST! You are not just chosen; you are chosen in Christ!  Your core identity is that you are a spirit, you are eternal, and you are being conformed to the blueprint that is Christ.

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you.” Jeremiah 1: 5

God is saying in essence, “Jeremiah…, I knew you before you were in your mother’s womb, and I have ordained you to SERVE ME!”

The word formed is the Hebrew word yâtsar and means to squeeze into shape, to press, to mold into a form, especially as a potter. If God formed us, knew us before time, called us forth into time, and ordained destiny for usthen all that we can say in response is, THY WILL BE DONE! That’s all we need to pray for!

To Seek first the Kingdom, which is to seek His will, causes everything to then fall into place and is centered in His will. His vision for our lives then becomes larger than life to us. It should occupy the whole purpose of our existence as our lives are gathered into it.

In the Bible, the Prophets and patriarchs were like flames of fire because they saw something that changed them. They came into God’s purpose for their existence! The saints of scripture knew why they had an existence—they were a chosen people!  They were chosen to be witnesses of the one true God, represent Him on Earth, and do His will. 

God has invested in our purpose and our destiny. He works everything toward bringing Christ forth in us, revealing Him through us. God’s Heavenly system ruling over all, is perpetually being upheld by THE WILL OF GOD.  God’s antenna is highly tuned therefore to receive the prayers and intercession from His people that are in harmony and alignment with His Will. For example, if we were created as royalty, He will not help us to get comfortable in the slums. If His intent for our lives is to be positioned within a certain sphere, He will not give us success outside of that sphere.

When things have gotten off course in our lives and out of His Divine order, the created must ask the Creator, who is the manufacturer, to RESET THE DESIGN, to bring it back to the original blueprint and His original intention. God has built His House—that is you! The house is blueprinted—you are blueprinted! He doesn’t want us to make additions, subtractions, or extractions because of fear or unbelief.

When our lives are centered in God’s Will and we seek FIRST the kingdom of God and we seek HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. everything is then added that is necessary to our Call and our purpose on Earth! He will then also include the desires of our hearts aligned to His will!

When taking this stance in life, we will then fully know that we are chosen; we will understand the reason for your existence, and the dynamics of our call, and will then be given the eyes to see to apprehend His will and His directives. When our lives are built on the right God-ordained foundation, our lives are then structured according to HIS WILL. Everything will flow in the right direction, precept upon precept.

Galatians 2:20 is to be the Ground Zero of our lives.  If this is our foundation, it will no longer be, I who live, but Christ who lives in me. We can then add to thatTHY WILL BE DONE.

The Body of Christ must get back to ground zero. When we pray Thy Will be done, we are asking God for a Reset and He will set us back to the Manufacturer’s original design and blueprint and establish us on Galatians 2:20! Built on the right foundation, God wills in us to do His good pleasure and says go, therefore!

The path before you has been ordained. The path is given and set according to your blueprint.  It is different for everyone, so we don’t need to compare. In finding His Will, the thing that you think you love will suddenly disappear as the original blueprint begins to take hold.  

God’s way costs! Are you willing to give up your will, your ideas, and the life you have mapped out? Are you willing to give it up for Him? When we do God’s promise to us will be, Eye has not seen what He has prepared for those who love Him who wait for him! WAIT AND SEE! Your plan is not better than His!  You may think your plan is safe, but no one is truly safe in these times, and no one is safe outside of His will.

The path may not be easy, but it will be worth it!You will discover the true you, the original blueprint of you. You will discover new gifts and new possibilities! When Jesus said to Nathaniel, Here is a man in whom there is no guile, He is saying to Nathaniel, I saw you! I know you! We are humbled when we recognize God’s depth of understanding of who we are and what we are capable of. He has the blueprint!

The kind of person we have been discussing, one who is sold out to God’s will, needs to come forth now in this hour.  God needs you to be who He created you to be. He needs you to be where you are supposed to be. He needs you to have what you need to have to get the job done.  To get to our core identity we must cut away at all the additions, put back all the subtractions, and get rid of all the nonessentials.

Everything then falls into place and comes forth by becoming rightly aligned to His will. By getting back to Ground Zero if necessary. The times require us to take the leap of faith.

Is it His will for us to be prosperous? Or is it to give our lives for the cause of the Kingdom? Paul understood what it meant to live in the will of God

“I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:11

This passage reveals the path of living the life of Thy will be done! Can we say yes to Him yes to His Will?

Jesus Is Lord! He is saying to us: I know you and I love you; I have always known you; you are mine! He gave us the PRAYER OF ALL PRAYERS—that we can use as a template for all our prayers. Jesus also prayed this prayer in the garden…not My will but Yours be done.

God’s mandate for living out our core identity is the Lord’s prayer. It is the prayer to reset our Identity and live out our blueprint.

“He said to them, “When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Luke 11:2

Positioned in The Will of God!

 

There is a Kingdom system presently in operation at the back of all things, having governance over the universe. As earthly systems presently collapse, Heaven’s Kingdom system never fails as it is eternal! God’s heavenly system is perpetually upheld by the will of God. Why do we pray? What is the whole purpose of prayer? Is it to receive an answer from a Sovereign God, who is positioned outside of our circumstances, who weighs and considers whether our request is a worthy and righteous one? No! We have been instructed by Christ to pray, Thy will be done! The point of prayer and spiritual communion with our righteous God is that He would move to establish His will in our lives and on earth. God’s will and determination toward our very existence and purpose, toward our families, our cities, and our nations, are fixed and settled in eternity. God’s antenna is therefore tuned to pick up and receive the prayer and intercession from His people that are in harmony and alignment with His Will. He helps us in this by directing us to: …seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matt. 6:33). When we do this everything in our lives, in accordance with His will, falls into place.

Daniel was a man whose prayers were attuned to heaven’s purposes and the will of God. God’s will may look vastly different from ours—from our desires and expectations as to how He should move. God is not moved by our attempts to sway Him toward an outcome we find palatable or satisfactory to our thinking. Eternal things are at stake that we know not of. Far better would it be for His people to humble themselves in brokenness, that they may have the ears that would hear the directives of an omniscient and omnipotent God, and return them to him in supplication from a heart having no agenda other than the will of God.

The heavens do rule, and they will continue according to God’s will, regardless of our attempts to manipulate, besiege or cajole. God changes not. His will is fixed toward a certain end. His means of getting there is immensely and uniquely different than man’s ability to perceive or understand outside of His kindness to enlighten us. His ways and will are higher than ours as He has said. We must attain to the place of understanding that God is perfect and that we may trust His ways. He is the only One that is good and all-wise and can therefore make righteous judgments. God knows what He is doing! Every knee must and will bow to His will and His ways of reaching His end.

God always tells us the truth as revealed in His Word—the good, the bad, and the ugly. To ignore the bad and the ugly or be unwilling to acknowledge them and address them, is detrimental to the ability to perceive God’s will, and therefore to implement the actions required.  An army ruled and led by emotion, worldly desires, or its own will cannot represent the Kingdom. We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood whose sole purpose is to love and serve the King in this hour—to serve His will his purposes, and His agenda.

“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed…continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Philippians 2:12

We are here to do of His good pleasure (KJV). I’m saddened for the narcissistic Christian who believes that the Kingdom revolves around them. It is not about us. It is fully about God, His Glory, and His Will. It is to the one who is broken and contrite in heart, that He will look. With this one, He will work to change history, prepare His way, and usher in His Kingdom reign on earth.

As God now moves in this notable hour to swing open the doors for the work to begin to build with Him, it would be helpful to deeply examine our hearts and motivations, the things we are involved in, whether in business or otherwise, and every aspect of our lives. Bring it all before Him, putting it all on the altar, and without clinging to anything, allow him to remove what He wants to, and keep what is to remain—that which is in sync with His will for our lives. As He has said, eye has not seen, or ear heard what God has prepared for those who love and wait for Him!

I Laid the Foundation Watch How You Build On It!

The spirit of the fear of the Lord is coming upon His church as He begins the work to shake it free of all that offends. Those who are clinging to sin and things He has not ordained for their lives will not be able to build and move with Him in this season. I sensed the Lord say that much that is not ordained by Him has crept into His house unawares, through those with an agenda bent on their desires, who have the need to be right and to defend their positions. As I was praying about this, I heard the word witchcraft. God is about to shake His House to its core so that He can rebuild it according to His will! He is looking for servants like Samuel who will do according to His mind and His heart (1 Sam. 2:35).

God is now setting the stage for a new beginning initiated in August—the 8th month of new beginnings. He is clearing the way before Him for His will to go forth through a people who are fully yielded to Him, to serve Him without any agenda or hidden motives. He is beginning the rebuilding process of His House. God is the Chief Architect and designer of His House. Every detail has been blueprinted by Him and he wants his house built exactly as He has designed it. This is true for the House of God corporately or individually, as each child of God houses the Spirit of God. He does not want our additions, extractions or subtractions to the Blueprint. He has not given us the right to redesign His House according to our minds and our thoughts. He has blueprinted His House within Christ the King and is determined to have His way and His means of getting what He wants. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, it is best to get in line with His desires.

A new breed is rising who will now build with Him, saints who have attained to a deeper level of death in the surrendered and yielded life.  It is unwise to think that we understand the whole counsel of God and can therefore settle to build and organize around what we have been given in the past. To settle to a fixed position is to become imprisoned by it, as God is always on the move. If we are not keeping up, He will prove us wrong in the new thing He is doing! Many have not been broken enough to have the ears to hear, or the eyes to see outside of the grid of their ministry or organization. 

God has moved on from the last decade. What are the dynamics of the new and how do we steward it as Apostolic people sent into this time to serve Him and His purposes? Thinking critically is to get outside of our box, find our place on our face at the Throne of God, and seek Heaven’s perspective. It is vital in the heightened deception of the times, to pursue the continual renewing of our minds and allow our old mindsets to be shattered. A new grid will form and a new level of apprehension in the realm of Heavenly things and the movements of God.
