FOR WE ARE GOD’S WORKMANSHIP, CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS TO DO GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED IN ADVANCE FOR US TO DO
For a long time in my life, I expected God to come into MY PURPOSE, but, God made it clear that He wanted me to come into HIS PURPOSE. He already had a master plan mapped out for Himself, for eternity—a marked-out course that had been planned and prepared before the world began. He had certain projects planned, certain assignments lined up, certain accomplishments mapped out. After I accepted this, He showed me MY part of HIS PURPOSE that stood firm throughout all generations.
WHO HATH SAVED US, AND CALLED US WITH AN HOLY CALLING, NOT ACCORDING TO OUR WORKS, BUT ACCORDING TO HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE, WHICH WAS GIVEN US IN CHRIST JESUS BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN
(2 Timothy 1:9).
Precious One, I have a set of good works chosen just for you. And this specific set of good works is connected to My Will—the Will of your Perfect Father. Dedicate your life to Me, completely, and I will work My Purpose in your life, daily, moment-by-moment, in every situation. Relate everything you are and do, to Me, in faith, and I will work My Will in your life.
NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, ‘LORD, LORD,’ WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT ONLY HE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN. MANY WILL SAY TO ME ON THAT DAY, ‘LORD, LORD, DID WE NOT PROPHESY IN YOUR NAME, AND IN YOUR NAME DRIVE OUT DEMONS AND PERFORM MANY MIRACLES?’ THEN I WILL TELL THEM PLAINLY, ‘I NEVER KNEW YOU. AWAY FROM ME, YOU EVILDOERS!’
To whom or what purpose have you dedicated your life? What will it take for you to commit your life completely to God, in faith, and let Him work His Purpose in your life? What do you think will happen if you did this? I urge you to talk to God about your decision.
PRAYER: Father in Heaven, I long to do Your Will. I desire to come into Your Purpose…only. Help me to let go of all the good works I have planned for myself and to let go of my own purpose that is set up according to the negative, destructive beliefs of the father-of-lies. Call me to complete commitment to You, Lord God. Then, the life that I now live in my human body, I will live in faith, only expecting Your Purpose to be done in my life.
Maintain an Awareness
Often times, we use the same defense mechanisms we saw our parents or other authority figures use, during our childhood lives. If they hid behind a smile to pretend that everything was OK, we learned to do the same.
