God's Purpose For My Life - 5

Everything Originated In The Mind Of God

This is the continuation of God’s Purpose For My Life series and this is part – 5.

We have been learning from the first verse of the book of Genesis so far and we will continue to do so till this article and then we will move on to the whole chapter of it.

As we saw in the first sentence of the Holy Bible that God created the heavens and the earth, we see that the earth came out of the heavens and the heavens actually came out of God’s imagination. So it all started in the mind of God. He brought forth both the invisible (heavens – spiritual) and visible (earth – physical) worlds through His imagination. That means the physical world we see today actually was the invisible world in the imagination of God.

God's purpose for my life

Now according to the first spiritual law, everything we want to see in the physical world must have originated in the mind of God first. And when we take hold of what is in the mind of God and we make it our imagination then it creates a new reality.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, - Ephesians 3:20
With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine. - Ephesians 3:20 (NCV)
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or imagine, according to the power that works in us, - Ephesians 3:20 (MEV)
God is actually able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we can ask or imagine according to the power that works within us. So the level of our receiving from God is entirely dependent on the level of His power at work within us. When we allow God’s power to work fully within us it creates the reality we desire. That power is from God and without His power working in us He won’t be able to do anything for us.
I asked God about the power that works in us, and He revealed to me that power is the ability to imagine according to the word of God. When the imagination of God works within us it becomes our imagination and then only God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above we ask or imagine. God gives us His imagination and through that imagination working within us He brings forth His purposes on earth through us.
The Psalmist says in Psalm 37 verse 4, Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart (NKJV).”
When God becomes our heart’s delight He gets the opportunity to pour out His love into our hearts which enables us to receive His thoughts that He has for our lives.
God thinks about us as He spoke through Prophet Jeremiah, For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV).” 
God not only has thoughts that He thinks toward us but He also like us to know them. That’s why we need to go to God in prayer and seek Him passionately with all our heart not just half-heartedly so that we can be linked into His imagination towards us. When we rejoice in the LORD and focus on Him it is like getting online with heaven’s network to get the download directly from God’s mind to ours.
Only asking won’t do any good to you. You need to imagine his thoughts of what you have asked of Him and let your emotions flow with it. And then you will have it.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. – Mark 11:24
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from the beginning to end. – Ecclesiastes 3:11
God never says, “Come back tomorrow” as some people think. The moment you pray to Him He answers your prayer because He is not bound by our time. He lives in eternity. He is the same yesterday today and forever. He is the great I AM WHO I AM. We live in the time zone but He is not. He created time for us. It is His gift to us. Since we live in a time zone we see the manifestations of our prayers only when the fullness of time comes because God has made beautiful in its time for us.
But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, - Galatians 4:4
He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last time for you, - 1 Peter 1:20
The Lord Jesus Christ manifested on earth in the fullness of time though He was foreordained before the foundation of the world. Likewise, when we pray to God He answers our prayer that very moment but we may not see the manifestation of it instantly but we can be rest assured that He has heard us according to His promise. 

First In The Spirit And Then In The Matter

The moment you pray to Him He answers your prayer. But you must believe and thank Him all the time even before you see them through your physical eyes. You must see them through the eyes of your mind and rejoice with a thankful heart because it is already done for you in the spirit realm. And then it shall be yours physically. If you have them first in the spirit then you shall have it literally on earth. But if you don’t have it invisibly first then you won’t have it visible.
Created through Him and for Him
For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels--everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. - Colossians 1:16-17 (MSG)
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.  - Colossians 1:16-17 (NASB)

The true purpose of our existence is to live in and for Christ because we were all created through Him and for Him. Apart from Him, we have no reality. We will be merely existing in our soul and bodies without having to do anything concerning eternal life in our spirits. Our life is holding up together in Him.

Jesus said in John 15:4, Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear the fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me (NKJV).”

Living for Jesus is the wisest decision one can ever make in this life because if we live for Him in this life we will live forever with Him in the life to come. Nobody is going to live forever in this body. One day we will all die. One day we will all leave this body because our body cannot hold our spirit forever. As time passes by this body won’t be able to contain our spirit. Our body will return to the dust from where it was taken from for a certain period of time. And then there will come a time when everyone died will be resurrected either to live with the God the Father and Son, Jesus the Christ in the new heaven and new earth or to the eternal punishment in the lake of fire which is the second death.

To live without Jesus is living in the realm of soul and body only. Only Jesus can give new birth to people in their spirits. When a person makes Jesus the Lord of their lives then their spirits get activated for their Creator. They get connected in the spirit with their Creator without any network failure. They become alive in their spirits for the fellowship with God Almighty as their heavenly Father. And when they do live for God they begin to understand the mystery that God has for their individual life.

God begins to unfold what is in His mind concerning their life through the written Scriptures. Divine communication starts between them and their Father through the Lord Jesus the Christ by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. They become one with the Lord in the spirit. 

It’s like a SIM card in a cell phone. Unless and until it is activated by the company that provided it you won’t be able to get connected with the network. We are like the cell phone made by the manufacturing company. God made us and placed His own spirit within us. In fact, we are spirit beings. We are SIM cards. We are placed in a body like that card in the cell phone. We are created to be connected with our Creator like the card is made to be connected. SIM card is what actually connects with the network for the communication purpose and the cell phone is made for that card to be placed within to fulfill its purpose. The cell phone is made for the communication purpose but without a SIM card, it is not possible. 

The communication is possible when a cell phone has a SIM card, physical components, and a battery. SIM card is our spirit, the battery is our soul and the physical component is our body with five physical senses. Once we are activated in our spirit by the Spirit of God we can have access into the presence of God. It is called a new birth and without it, we cannot see nor enter into the kingdom of God.

In the next article of this series, we will explore the creation of earth and mankind so that we may understand our functionality to manifest what we are supposed to manifest on earth. We will also learn the second spiritual law which is, the need has a provision within it. That way we can find out more about God’s purpose for our lives.
