“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 for HIS 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 generation has been chosen for this notable season of History, handpicked by God!
This question that we are chosen must be settled in our hearts. God knew us from before time. Our core identity is CHOSEN IN CHRIST! We are not just chosen; we are chosen in Christ! Our core identity is also that we are a spirit, we are eternal, and we 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 us…then all that we can say in a resounding response is, THY WILL BE DONE! That’s all that is needed!
To Seek first the Kingdom, which is to seek His will, causes everything to then fall into place as it 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 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 stay comfortable in a poverty mentality. If His intent for our lives is to be positioned within a certain sphere, we will not find peace until we are where we belong.
When things have gotten off course in our lives and out of His Divine order, the created must ask the Creator—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 that…THY WILL BE DONE.
I believe God is saying His people must get back to ground zero—living the crucified life. 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 blueprint and establish us on Galatians 2:20! As we are 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 begin to fade as the original blueprint begins to take hold in your life.
God’s way will cost! 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 Isaiah 64:4, eye has not seen or ear heard what He has prepared for those who love Him who wait for him! WAIT AND SEE! Our plan is not better than His! We may think our plan is safe, but 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 was saying to Nathaniel, I saw you! I know you! When we recognize God’s depth of understanding of who we are and what we are capable of we are humbled in His Presence. 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 nonessential.
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 had the answer! He understood what it meant to live in the center of 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 has given us the ultimate PRAYER OF ALL PRAYERS—a prayer that we can use as a template for all our prayers. Jesus Himself 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 to 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
