Born to do His will

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
[Ephesians 2:10]

The new creation is called to do the will of the Father; there is nothing more important in this world. It is the desire of our Heavenly Father that we awaken to His purposes for our life and generation, and bend all the resources of our will and ability into executing them. This means seeking, finding, embracing, endorsing and establishing His will now; in whatever place or time we find ourselves. It is a call to lift highest the flag of God’s purposes in every situation and over ever territory. Selah

The will of the Father is plainly revealed to His children in His Word. Any student of scripture will find therein expressed principles distilled from the mind of God that paint the landscape of His general will. For example, we know it is the Father’s will that all men come to be born again and founded in Christ through the preaching of the gospel; we know it is His will that all His children prosper and be in good health and walk in dominion and power…we know it is the Father’s will that all of the members of the church grow up to maturity and perfection in Christ. The general will of the Father is made plain in the Holy Writ for all of us to see.

And then there is the will of the Father specific for an individual or situation. This is His Wisdom and purpose unique for you. This is the divine blueprint with which you must build your life. This specific will of God for our lives must be discovered and pursued. We must give ourselves to study and fellowship in the Word with the Holy Spirit to awaken to the Father’s specific will for our lives. It is the only enclave that truly brings harmony and fulfillment to every sphere of our being.

The will of God is worth knowing and doing. It is imperative that we channel all our energy into discovering His will and establishing it. Remember that you were born for His pleasure and His goodwill.

You are blessed!
