Your legacy is on The LORD’s mind!
The counsel of The LORD has been preparing you for the purpose of His own legacy.
Is this being selfish on His part? No, because His purpose has always been for His children to be saved from the wrath that is to come.
For the Word of God states:
“it is appointed unto men, once to die, then after this the judgement.” Hebrew 9:27.
“A thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but Jesus came that we might have life, and to have that life in its fullness, more abundantly.” John 10:10.
“Jesus came to save us from sin, and from the lies of your adversary, the devil” John 8:44; 1 John 3:8.
Scripture also states:
“There are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless, the counsel of The LORD; that will stand.” Proverbs 10:21.
Your testimony is your legacy.
A man of God, or woman of God’s testimony speaks of the Presence and Power of God in their lives.
The Word That Is Sent, the Rhema Word of God, (Romans 10: 17), that is manifest in their own obedience, will meet those who see what God has been doing in their own lives, confirming what The LORD has been showing them.
Obedience brings the Power, The Power is in the Word That is Sent, And this event of obedience is what the Spirit of The LORD is using to manifest His intent.
Being the Spirit of Prophecy that He is, He is carrying you along like a river carries a boat having no oars. Obedience means total dependence upon His Voice.
The more you obey His Voice, the more you will see and experience the reward for your obedience. He is your reward. More of Himself.
Even though you might fall at times, you will not be cast down, for The LORD upholds you, (Psalm 37:24). Humble yourself in the sight of The LORD, and He will lift you up. (James 4:10).
The LORD will not forget your labor of Love (Hebrews 6:10). He has been shining His Love upon you since the day you asked Him to be your Lord and Savior.
He has been preparing you every day for the purpose of the manifestation of His Grace through your life. He has been filling you with more of Himself every time you seek His Face.
Every time that you obey Him, He has been setting you up for the outpouring of the Spirit of The LORD. He has been showing you, oh man, what is good. Now what does The LORD require of you?
But to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly before your God.(Micah 6:8).
This will be your legacy.
