Before the foundation of the world, before the first sunrise, before the first flower ever bloomed or gave fragrance, you were predestined by God to live a phenomenal life. You were created to express the manifest glory of God and to display His multifaceted wisdom.
Since your inception, there has been many obstacles, many things that have tried to make you forget that you were created for a specific purpose, a purpose that will forever be imbedded in your spirit. Your body may have settled, but within your true self, there’s a vexing unrest; there’s a desire to burst forth and be the person that God so affectionately designed.
Day after day, you’ve grown tired of the same old mundane routine, and because of the spirit of inspiration, you know that life should be filled with adventure and passion. Passion for doing that thing that you were created to do. You want to dare to be “extra” ordinary, but you’re afraid.
You desire to venture away from the known and peer into the superabundant life that God has preserved for you but you just don’t know how. You truly desire to live full but you’re trapped in unfulfilling relationships and associations; and you’re on a job that you absolutely loathe. Face it; you are ensnared by the web that this thing called life has weaved for you.
Well, there’s only one way to break this yoke of bondage—you must remember the conversation that you had with God before you ever came to Earth. Allow me to help you….
Yes, there existed a spiritual you before there was ever a physical you. Hence, we have the concept of déjà vu—an impression of having seen or experienced something before.
Let me outline the scene right before God placed you (your embryo) into your mother’s womb:
As He walked you to the tunnel of time, you two rehearsed your earthly assignment. He told you that many had gone on before you and had forgotten Him and their purpose for life. But you vowed to be different. He said, “My child, there will be much opposition and temptation,” but you said, “Lord, if you will cause me to remember while I’m there; I will forsake all and honor You by fulfilling my purpose. I will use the gift that You have given me to make Your name great in the Earth. Through my gifts and my talents I will bring You honor and glory. I will not take the credit, I will let others know that it is by Your Spirit, mercy, and grace that I accomplish these things. I will represent You and all Your splendor in the Earth and I will cause others to remember their purpose for being there as well.”
God said, “But My child, so many have made these same proclamations, but when they get to Earth, they are either conditioned to accept whatever life brings to them, to just fit the status quo, or they are motivated by their own selfish ambitions, greed, and lust.
In order for you to please Me, on the day that I remind you of your reason for being on Earth, you must promise to seek Me with all of your heart, only then will the secrets of your destiny be revealed.”
You have said,” Seek My face—inquire for and require My presence as a vital need.” My heart says to You, “Your face, Your presence oh Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require of necessity for my life.”—Psalms 27:8
Then you said, “but Lord, how will I know how to seek You on Earth when I won’t be able to see You there?” He said, “My child, I have sent the Holy Spirit, which is My Spirit, to the Earth to lead and guide My children in all their ways. I need you to spend time talking to Him and asking Him to help you to remember your God and your purpose.
Then I need you to sit, wait, and listen for His response. It is only through your daily communication with Him will you be empowered to carry out My plans for your life. He will cause you to remember this conversation we are having today. He will cause you to renew your mind so that your thoughts will resemble My thoughts and so that your will is conformed to Mine.
It is through your relationship with the Holy Spirit that your life will be completely transformed. He will teach you how to live My Word (the Bible), not just study It and He will lead you into all truth. He, My Spirit, will not fail you, for He was sent for this very purpose—to comfort, to counsel, and to advocate.
My child, many have tried to do this on their own and failed, but the Holy Spirit holds the program (software) for abundant life, and it is only through intimate times with Him will this program be downloaded to you so that you will be able to carryout your destiny even to the most minute detail.
I have placed something in all of My creation so that they will recognize Me when they see or hear of Me, that is why mankind will be without excuse.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God Himself has shown it to them.
For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity are clearly seen and are understood by the things that He created. So men are without excuse, because when they knew, remembered, and recognized God, they did not honor or glorify Him as God or give Him thanks.
But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking with vain imaginations, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations, and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise and professing to be smart, they made fools of themselves; who exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshipped and served themselves, the creature, rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome.—Romans 1:18-22,25,28
However, My child, you don’t have to be caught up in this scripture. When I send someone to you or just speak a word into your spirit to remind you of Me and My purpose for your life, simply run to the Holy Spirit; for in Him lies the issues of life. This is the only way you will truly be fulfilled.
You were not created to live beneath your means or to fit in with peers who don’t have My mind. You were created to bring Me glory. You were not sent to Earth to be stuck on an unfulfilling job. You, yes you, are a world changer, so I adjure you to blaze the trail that I have ordained for you—because by your life you too will cause others to remember their God.”
Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate;
Our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
We ask ourselves, “Who are we to be brilliant, fabulous, gorgeous, and talented?”
Actually, who are we not to be?
We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us;
And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.—Nelson Mandela
Require a personal, one on one relationship with God; make it more necessary than the very air that you breathe. Then watch Him Ephesians 3:20 you!
