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]. (Ephesians 2:10, AMP)
We pray for direction from the beginning of anything right through to its conclusion. In the process, we learn to trust the Lord, gaining understanding from the experience. He has plans we are yet to know, including huge downloads of His love to move us into those plans, in sync with His leading.
In the process of learning to trust Him, we train our soul to agree with His leading. Humanly speaking, we are triune beings—spirit, soul and body; to successfully follow Him the human spirit must be willing, the soul (mind, will and emotions) must agree with the direction He gives, and the flesh is disciplined to choose His way over its own.
The goal is demonstration of his dominion in our lives. In every place of His dominion, treasures await the one who willingly, purposefully connects to His works. His dominion is like the river Ezekiel was shown, a river teaming with His presence. The river forms around us and we become one with it.
Bless the Lord—everyone! In all places of His dominion, bless Him!
