Show up to the party

Are we living our lives God focused and determined to accomplish God’s plans for us in the Earth? Are we taking the necessary steps to find out what it is that God has us in the Earth to do? That is where we left things off last week.

Do you know why you are here? Do you know your purpose in the Earth? When we are unsure about our purpose, we are all over the place. We start this and don’t finish, and we start that and we want to try this and we want to do that but nothing ever really gets done because we have no idea who we are or where we are going. Jesus knew who He was, and He spent His life working towards the cross.

Our goal as Christians is to do God’s will in the Earth. To be His hands and feet. Are we being intentional about prioritising the things of God in our lives? Jesus’ life was leading to the cross, our lives are leading to heaven. Not just a passport into heaven but so we can give an account for our lives to God and hear God say, “Well done good and faithful servant”, Matthew 25:23. A servant is not someone who just wings things. They are not out there doing their own thing. They are submitted to their master, to their Lord. We are to be submitted to God as our Lord and King. We are to be about our Father’s business.

Jesus said in John 6:38, “For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.” We too came from our Father in heaven. Bible tells us that God knew us before time and before we were born into our lives on Earth, Ephesians 1:1, Jeremiah 1:5. This must mean that we too have been sent to do something in the Earth. To accomplish God’s plans.

Jesus when teaching His disciples how to pray taught them to pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done one Earth as it is in Heaven,” Matthew 6:10. How does God’s Kingdom come? How is His will done on Earth as it is in Heaven? Through us. We get to be a part of God’s eternal plan as we live out our lives on Earth.

We have been put on the Earth for a reason. Ephesians 2:10 says, “We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!

We were created for a reason, for a purpose. Proverbs 16:4 tells us that, “The Lord has made everything for its purpose…”. You are not here by mistake, God wanted you to be here. In the thousands of years that have gone before, God chose you to be born into this time we are living in. Not only that, God equipped you with everything you need to survive the times we are living in.

But we are not created just so we can survive. As children of God, we don’t just go through life thinking que sera sera. We don’t just drag ourselves along waiting for heaven. No. We serve God with our lives. We have a destiny to fulfil. We have a part to play in God’s eternal plans. We have good works to fulfil. We play an active role in God’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven.

There are people who look at the word “destiny” in Ephesians 2:10 which in the older translations is noted as “ordained” and throw their hands up and say, “It’s already decided so why bother?” Nothing could be further from the truth. We have a part to play in destiny, we can choose to partner with the plans of God, or we can decide, “YOLO, I’m gonna do me”.

The word “ordained” means to prepare before or to make ready beforehand. Meaning, God has gone ahead and made the preparations for you to accomplish all you need to accomplish in life. Whether you do it is up to you. We can prepare a big party for someone but whether they show up to the party is entirely up to them. They can choose to stay home in their PJ’s and watch TV.

God has plans for your life, Jeremiah 29:11 tells us. “Plans for prosperity and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” These are good plans. Trust me, God’s good plans are better than our best plans multiplied by infinity. God holds the whole world in His hands. He stands outside of time and He looks at our lives and makes beautiful plans that we only see glimpses of in this life but in heaven we will look back at the things we thought were insignificant on earth and see the eternal effects.

In effect, even though God has plans for us, how much of that we fulfil is up to us. The more closely we walk with God, and the more we yield to the transformation process, the more we mature as Christians. The more we mature, the more we are able to test the good, pleasing and perfect will of God and walk in it. Whether you fulfil your destiny is up to you, not God. Stop waiting on God and start doing the things you know to do.

Love and blessings,

Melissa Tsingano
