God’s Call and Prevailing Purpose

God’s Call and Prevailing Purpose
By  Jonathan Doctor, Ph.D.

 http://www.fofmc.net

 
Proverbs 19:21 says that many are a man’s plans, but the Lord’s Purpose will Prevail.
 
1 John 5:4 says that whatever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world; our faith.
 
Romans 11:29 says that the gifts and callings of God are without changing…
 
Always remember that God does not change His mind about the calling He has given you

    Before we were born God had a plan for our life. According to the Word of God in Acts 17:26 He planned what we were called to do, the time, the place and boundaries where we are to do it. Our God, in His awesome Wisdom chose us to live in this day, He did not choose St. Paul not St. Peter but you and I to be the last generation before the Coming of the Lord, He has Graced us to bring in the Harvest.

    To me that is an awesome thought, and it is a sobering responsibility, but at the same time it is a relief to know that we do not have to trust in our own human, natural strength to do it but by His Grace. God’s Grace, His abilities and gifts will empower us as we go and step out into that Calling that He has Graced and anointed us to do.

    God ‘s Calling on our life will never be taken away, God does not change His mind (Romans 11:29Amp), what He spoke will come to pass, He declared the end from the beginning. He declared that we would be His Glorious Church to show this world the Love of God. Jesus has declared that He is building His Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against His church.

    This is good news to know, that as adversity and adversaries show up on our way to the destination God has for us that the adversities or mountains ahead are temporal, they are temporary, they are changeable and movable. With this attitude and spirit of faith we know that we are overcomers because God does not change His Word, Name or Mind about us or our calling.

    This is Good news to those who might have had or are having  small beginnings, knowing that adversity and circumstances cannot change God’s mind, knowing this creates a NO QUIT attitude. God’s plans Will come to pass.

    God had orchestrated our lives, He has ordained our steps and works according to Ephesians 2:10 and Psalms 37:23. Just like Jesus knew where He came from and where He was going (John 8:14), we too can and should know where we are going. By knowing where we came from, we can look back and see God ordaining our steps in life, getting us to this day and the days ahead.

    Once someone has spent quality time with God, intimate time in prayer, praying in the Spirit and continues to read His Word and  listen to the Voice of the Lord. They can develop this knowing in their heart to the Call of God and to where they are going. Jesus said that His sheep hear His voice and His sheep follow Him, so as someone hears the Lord they must do what He says. We as sheep do not want to get out from under our Shepherd’s Care.

    This excites me about the days ahead, because in knowing God’s call on my life and knowing in what direction He is leading me, I have assurance that my Shepherd will not lead me astray as I obey His voice.

    We must stay faithful to the Call of God in the small beginnings and in the adversities in our lives, as we do the Lord will increase us and we will be given more, because we have proven our faithfulness in the small things.

    Dr. Jerry Savelle says “Faithfulness is the #1 quality that God looks for in those He calls.”
 
God is looking for some people who are willing to fulfill His prevailing purpose and Call on their lives.
 
I think we ought to Praise and Thank God for calling us, for giving us His Purpose. Knowing that His Purpose will prevail, we can be safe as we abide in the calling and purpose that He has chosen for us. Lets have confidence that God is working things out according to His good Purpose (Eph. 1:11, Rom. 8:28, Jer. 29:11, Eph. 2:10)
 
As we continue to run the race that God has set before us we can be sure that we have Prevailing Purpose!

Called to the Kingdom for such a Time as This

16 Apr

Called to the Kingdom for such a Time as this.

By Jonathan Doctor

Like Esther, You are called into the Kingdom for such a time as this. Like Esther was called into the Favor and Grace of God to deliver her generation so you are called to the Grace and Favor of God to deliver your generation. Like Moses was an instrument and vessel of God to Deliver the Children of Israel from Pharo’s slavery so are you called and Graced to bring Deliverance to this generation from the slavery of satan, sin and the evil world system (Galatians 1:4) Like Ester You are Called into the Royal Family to Exercise your Authority and to set the captives free.

You may feel like Mephibosheth in Lodebar, but God is Calling you to the Kingdom, to be a King’s Kid! Mephibosheth was called to the Kingdom because his father Jonathan had a Covenant with King David. Mephibosheth was in Lodebar, Lodebar was a place of lack, a place of poverty and inadequacy. You may feel the same way, you may be in a place of lack of health, finances, lack of hope, lack of The One True God. But I am here to tell You that you don’t have to be broke any more! You don’t have to be sick anymore, you don’t have to be in lack anymore! Your Days of living in Lodebar are over! You are a King’s Kid and you have been summons to theKingdom of God.

God is calling you to a higher Life, a Royal Lifestyle, a Good Life. God has Prophesied Grace and Favor to You, this Grace and Favor will get you out of Lodebar and bring you in to the Kingdom. Like Joseph in the pit, You can go from the pit to the Palace by the Grace and Favor of God!

Act 3:24 Amplified  Indeed, all the prophets from Samuel and those who came afterwards, as many as have spoken, also promised and foretold and proclaimed these days.

Act 3:25  You are the descendants (sons) of the prophets and the heirs of the covenant which God made and gave to your forefathers, saying to Abraham, And in your Seed (Heir) shall all the families of the earth be blessed and benefited. [Gen. 22:18; Gal. 3:16.]

This Prophetic Grace will change and re-arrange things in your life. Grab hold of these Truths I share with you and put them to practice. Do not let the devil or any religious ‘stinkin thinkin’ person talk you out of your Prophetic Grace, Take Your Place in the Grace and Live the Life God Prophesied You to Live.

Eph 2:7 (Message)  Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus.

Eph 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

Eph 2:7Amp  He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus.

Eph 2:8  For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God;

Eph 2:9  Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]

Eph 2:10  For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].

By the Spirit of God Paul wrote this Ages ago about his and our day, about this Grace, this Favor, this Salvation offered to those who will accept it.

Eph 1:4 Amplified  Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.

Eph 1:5  For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]–

Eph 1:6  [So that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favor and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.

Eph 1:7  In Him we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses), in accordance with the riches and the generosity of His gracious favor,

Eph 1:8  Which He lavished upon us in every kind of wisdom and understanding (practical insight and prudence),

Eph 1:9  Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him,

Eph 1:10  [He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things on the earth.

Eph 1:11  In Him we also were made [God’s] heritage (portion) and we obtained an inheritance; for we had been foreordained (chosen and appointed beforehand) in accordance with His purpose, Who works out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His [own] will,

Rom 8:28 Amplified  We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

Rom 8:29  For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.

Rom 8:30  And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being].

Rom 8:31  What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] [Ps. 118:6.]

Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

Act 17:27  That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

Act 17:28  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Act 17:29  Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

Act 17:30  And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Act 17:31  Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by [that] man whom he hath ordained; [whereof] he hath given assurance unto all [men], in that he hath raised him from the dead.
