”…chosen…predestined according to the plan…in conformity with the purpose of his will”       [Ephesians 1:11]

Have you ever received a phone call and the voice on the other end says…you have been chosen…you have won…you have been appointed?  It’s a breathtaking experience usually saved for a few.  Maybe you’ve been among those so blessed or maybe you haven’t but when you read the words of Paul—‘chosen’! you have just received God’s call!  You have been ‘chosen’— chosen for a purpose, a purpose that carries with it a predestined plan.

I write, speak and minister the release of God’s calling because the best definition of a life that glorifies the Father is one that knows and is fulfilling His plan.  Through the unique by design experience we continually celebrate as God unveils the uniqueness of every individual and unfolds the plan He has for their individual lives.

Activating His plan shifts the gears of kingdom living into high gear and releases the creative power of abundant living.  Paul said the purpose is revealed when God  ”…works out everything in conformity to the purpose of his will”  Everything…that means everything…God is working out every situation and every circumstance for one reason…to reveal His Will. The purpose and plan is the ministry already predestined in Christ and waiting for you to fulfill.  You were born of the Spirit to minister.

You were created for ministry [Ephesians 2:10] Saved for ministry [2 Timothy 1:9] Called into ministry [1 Peter 2:9-10] Gifted for ministry [1 Peter 4:10] Authorized for ministry [Matt. 28:18-20] Commanded to minister [Matt. 20-26-28] To be prepared for ministry [Ephesians 4:11] Needed for ministry [1 Corinthians 12:27]
