“You saw who you created me to be before I became me!”Psalms 139:16a The Passion Translation
In Part 2 of this series, I ended by describing the kind of close, intimate relationship our Creator and our Designer wants to have with us, and that we must partake in if we want to experience the successful life He has planned for each one of us.
Our questions must then be, how do we walk and how do we live in this living relationship of power and of authority? How do we allow this understanding to impact our living so that our outcomes are the results of His planning and so we experience what He says about us? How? By changing the way that we think, what we believe and how we act to come into alignment and into agreement with what He says. We begin by cleaning up the clutter of our minds by washing them in His Word. We must erase all that we have allowed into our minds (our databank) that is not in agreement with what our Creator and our Designer has said. We must accept and believe all that He says and has said about us in every situation, each circumstance and in all of our relationships. We must then declare our belief out loud by speaking with our voice what He says, and by not agreeing with what our enemy the Defeated Satan says and has said.
When we have changed what we believe by reprogramming our minds to be in agreement with our God, when we have spoken out loud with our voice our agreement with His Words, we then are to write out these beliefs for every situation, each circumstance and for all of our relationships. Our writing is to be in large, plain, easy to ready letters so that those whom our God has positioned and planned to be a part of our process can easily read what our God has said and can participate in the actions necessary to accomplish successfully the charge. We are part of a “Community” and have “common unity” with others who play an important part in our outcomes and in our success. Everything in our lives must be considered for the perspective of our eternity.
Knowing who we are now and forever and operating successfully in that knowledge requires a paradigm shift in our understanding and in our subsequent actions. A paradigm is defined as a way of looking at something. A paradigm shift is an important change that happens when the usual way of thinking about or doing something is replaced by a new and different way. We must shift our thinking, change our beliefs, and direct our actions to reflect and to agree with our eternity and our eternalness. While our horizontal and earthly heritage is significant and good information to know, we are eternal. There is a transcendent component and eternal value that is greater and more important than this brief period of our eternity while we are presently, in-time. We are not confined to, nor are we limited to our earthly heritage. The source of who we are is eternal. Our talents, our gifts, our abilities, our call and our anointing come from who we are eternally.
So, who are we? We are an eternal spirit, created and designed by an eternal God whose purpose is success. We live in a body and we are managed by our mind that we have the privilege and the charge of programming and reprogramming our minds to be a databank of information that agrees with our Creator and our Designer, our Father and our God. Our forever success comes from developing and building our lives presently, in-time based on who we are eternally.
