Ephesians 2:10 (KJV) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
After Ben got baptized in the Holy Spirit and started enjoying the fellowship of the Spirit, it didn’t take long for him to discover that his life was scripted [in heaven] and there were good works written for him to accomplish. He was so glad to realize that his life was not an accident after all; that God knew everything about his life and had a plan for him even before he was born.
Ben was born out of wedlock. His mother didn’t want him and his father denied him. He was reluctantly raised by his mother’s aunt who had to take his mother and him in when her sister(Ben’s grandma) died in the midst of the trauma and stress of dealing with the fact that her only child got pregnant as a teenager and contracted AIDS. Ben grew up with a sense of rejection. He believed that his birth and life were a big mistake. His mother had died of aids when he was a baby but he was lucky not to have contracted the virus. He sometimes wished he had contracted the virus and died as a baby too. But that all changed when he started fellowshipping with God through the Holy Spirit and realizing that he was God’s masterpiece created for good works. Knowing the Lord Jesus and discovering that even though his physical birth may have been unplanned, his [Spiritual] birth into God’s kingdom was well planned and orchestrated, Ben found joy and peace in his relationship with the Lord.
One of the essential things that being baptized in the Holy Spirit should do to every believer is that it will reveal God’s visions concerning us. “….[Y]our young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams”(see Acts 2:17). The outpouring of the Holy Spirit brings us into alignment with God’s visions and plans for us. The Holy Spirit is the one who energizes us to actualize and fulfill the good works God has before ordained for us to walk in.
Go into today remembering that God has a plan for you and that plan is good. Never forget that life here on earth is about finding and fulfilling God’s grand plans for you.
