What is God's plan for your life?
To find out, you need to sit down with Him at His Table and He will show you, He will reveal it to you.
"preDESTINATION" happens at the table of the Lord. We feed on His presence and become more and more the person He created us to be! This transformation is understanding how God gets us into the destiny He always intended,
Predestination, prior to understanding our eternal destiny, has to do with living our lives within the framework of Communion with Jesus or living our lives apart from an intimate relationship with Him.
Each of our lives were created and packaged to be unwrapped, unfolded, and understood through a real and personal, one-on-one, intimate relationship with Jesus. When Jesus is the chief cornerstone of your life you get to find out from Him where you fit into the plan He has for you. For this to happen it involves all of creation, all of Bible history, and a life-time of Jesus revealing the details as you spend time with Him.
In over 45 years not one course of study, book or teacher has ever had the golden ticket for knowing God's purpose for my life. I was given the same rhetoric you have been given, "God's will is a mystery so just trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey!"
Then there is the Romans 8:28 catchall and don't worry, "All things work together for good (and oh yeah) - "for those who are the called" (then don't forget part c) - "according to his purpose".
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
The Lord created you that way! Within you He has bundled His specific purpose inside the package that He calls "you". "You" are My beloved!" "I have great plans for "you". For the "you" to evolve there needs to be a miraculous connection with He who made you. The connection begins or began the moment you turn from the temporal and believe in the eternal love God has for you. You believe Jesus and open your life to Him, he saves you and promises you eternal life. When He becomes your Good Shepherd He leads you to His Table.
It is there that the relationship happens. At His Table in Communion, we feed on His love and life, This is where we encounter Him. It is the place of His Presence or Glory! In His Glory we are transformed from one degree of glory to another. Another way of saying the same thing is that experiencing the revelation of His life within us when we eat and drink the meal He has prepares for each one of us. He gave His life so that we might receive His life which includes our current and eternal destiny.
How can this happen?
We feed on "revelation" given to us from Him. It happens morsel by morsel as the bread of His Body and sip by precious sip in the revelation of His love in the wine of His blood. We feed and drink on what is eternal, now! You don't have to wait until this temporal life is over; He not only wants us to share in His love and life now but within the purpose and destiny He pre-designed for you before you were ever born.
4 obstacles that will hinder you are all lies and can be placed beneath and washed and cleansed by the power of His blood right now as you read.
Lie one: Your sin keeps you from His plan, purpose and most importantly a 24/7 relationship in Communion with Him.
Overcoming truth: "It is finished" Jesus took all your sin, past, present and future upon Himself. He paid your full debt in FULL. You now live by grace through His faithfulness!
Lies two-four: Your shame, guilt and condemnation will not allow you to believe or have communion.. You never stop sinning. You are not worthy!
Overcoming truth: "It is finished" means Jesus did it all. He paid the price and forgives ALL sin, not just past and present but future as well. With the forgiveness is the cleansing power in the flow of His shed blood and poured out waters of His divine mercy.
In Communion the Holy Spirit reveals what Jesus wants to show you and speak to you about. Everything He shares with you is life giving, purpose driven, and full of love and acceptance. You are free of sin, guilt, shame and condemnation.
If you wake up to any of these 4 hindrances, start everyday with Communion and feed upon His bread of life and wine of love. Lies are real but only work in the temporal time zone, The Truth/Jesus is both then, now and forever!
Be Bold Believe! You are the righteousness of God in Christ. He who knew no sin was made to be sin for you. You are the righteousness of God in Him. The law judges but the spirit gives life. You are no longer "under the laws demands" but guided by believing that He loves you and gave Himself for you. His oceans of love pound the shores of your heart with waves of grace unceasingly and when storms come up those waves become even greater and mightier.
When I woke up this morning the Lord said, "I have put my strength in your legs so you can get up and walk in My victory! I rose up and walked normally for the first time since open heart surgery New Year's Eve! The message is that we walk in His victory when we follow Him! I am walking and leaping and praising God! Alleluia!
The influence of the presence of Jesus purges out the poisons and toxins of my life before Christ and infuses me with the blessings and promises that bring about the new creation and purpose He has destined for me. This is the same for all who will come to Him and believe, even a little bit. .
The Math of The Miracle Meal
One morsel of bread from bread we offer Him can feed forever. It is the bread of heaven, the body of Jesus, the flesh of the Lord. It never grows stale and has the power to multiply into morsel sized revelation, sandwich sized, meal sized, feast size and banquet sized revelation. One morsel will keep feeding you forever, It is the bread of His medicine to heal and make you whole. It is the New Manna of His Flesh hat feeds us with the greater life of His realm, His Kingdom.
One sip of wine offered to Him, comes back as the eternal drink of His life and love. When we sip, He pours! When we drink - we are transformed. Like the bread the wine never loses its capability to inebriate our spirit forever. More and more, we are so filled with His lie and love - it pours out from us like a fountain of blessing in all of our life and onto all we come into contact with. Its no mere common wine - its miracle empowered wine of His holy blood. It has within is the power to forgive, heal, deliver, provide, prepare as well as to transform and in the last day to raise us up to realize the full reality of eternal life.
One day - very very very sooooooon! We will drink with Him where He is as His Bride without a single spot wrinkle or blemish made clean by the Blood of The Lamb! (It works in eternity as well as Right Now!)
