SPIRITUAL ALIGNMENT: Standing Perfect in God’s Will
Psalms 85:8 TPT
“Now I’ll listen carefully for your voice and wait to hear whatever you say. Let me hear your promise of peace— the message every one of your godly lovers longs to hear. Don’t let us in our ignorance turn back from following you.”
Several objects and even parts of the human body can function in place of another even though it wasn’t originally designed for such. Many times, because they work individuals tend to continue the practice rather than seek the correct method of application. Regardless of how beautiful this seems, it is both a disservice to the manufacturer and the user.
To the manufacturer because it limits his creative plan and purpose, and to the user because he’s constantly struggling over challenge already solved. This gives credence to the popular quote from leadership expert, Dr Myles Munroe; “when the purpose of a thing is unknown, abuse is inevitable”. It further goes to show that to know the purpose of a thing, instructions must and should be gotten from the producer.
God who is our manufacturer had a grand plan for every individual and this plan is designed to custom fit for each. His grand plan is for every of His son to come into the knowledge of this plan and to live accordingly. Colossians 1:9-11 is filled shows us the importance of being aligned to this will.
“9. Since we first heard about you, we’ve kept you always in our prayers that you would receive the perfect knowledge of God’s pleasure over your lives, making you reservoirs of every kind of wisdom and spiritual understanding.
10. We pray that you would walk in the ways of true righteousness, pleasing God in every good thing you do. Then you’ll become fruit-bearing branches, yielding to his life, and maturing in the rich experience of knowing God in his fullness!
11. And we pray that you would be energized with all his explosive power from the realm of his magnificent glory, filling you with great hope.”
It takes a man who understands the will of God for his life to live fulfilled. The pleasure of God for your life is that you dominate in righteousness over all the earth. But to step into that reality requires knowledge translated into tangible results. It is His will that we have live out His plan for us, the very one He designed before we were formed. Yet, it takes a praying man to align his physical experience to His spiritual reality.
Hence, necessity is laid upon you to travail till you you are standing in His perfect will. This is the only reality acceptable for you. Regardless of what the circumstances around you are, you must as a matter of urgency call forth those things that be not as though they were. From Colossians 1:9-11;4:12, all of the spiritual inheritance for believers were preceded by PRAYER! So, we must stay prayed up.
In this quarter, your driving force must be the need to see the perfect will stand in your lives, chapters, zones, homes and environment. Only one goal – to come into spiritual alignment as anything short of that is a disservice to you. You must choose to stand in His perfect will, nothing less, nothing more as the safest place in the whole wide world is in His will.
