I Am Anointed to do the Will of God!
Jeremiah 1:4-54 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were bornI sanctified you;I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Before you were physically born, you were already created in the mind and heart of God to do His will. You came to earth pre-wired to do God’s will for your life.
God created you for an extraordinary life! YOU ARE ANOINTED TO DO THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOU!

· YOU NEED TO KNOW HIS WILL & DO HIS WILL
Acts 22:14, 15 NET
Then he said, 'The God of our ancestorshas already chosen you to know his will, to see the Righteous One, and to hear a command from his mouth, 15because you will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard.
12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvationwith fear and trembling;13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for Hisgood pleasure.14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
· WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION (HONOR & REVERE GOD’S AUTHORITY, NO FEAR IN LOVE!)
· DON’T COMPLAIN (secret debate or displeasure, murmuring) OR DISPUTE (argue, hesitation)
· SHINE AS LIGHTS IN THE MIDST OF DARKNESS
· HOLD FAST (give attention, observe, attend to) TO THE WORD OF LIFE
13 for it is God who worksin you both to will and to do for Hisgood pleasure.
· The Holy Spirit anoints you to do God’ will and assignment for your life!
COLOSSIANS 4:12 ISV
Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of the Messiah Jesus, sends you his greetings. He is always wrestling in his prayers for you, so that you may stand mature, completely convinced of the entire will of God.
Agōnizomai: TO ENTER A CONTEST , TO STRUGGLE, WRESTLE TO CONTEND WITH ADVERSARIES, TO FIGHT, STRIVE TO OBTAIN
· PRAYER AND INTERCESSION HELPS YOU CONNECT TO THE WILL OF GOD!
Example: Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane (Place of pressing olives tor produce pure oil)
Luke 22:40-44 NKJV
40 When He came to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” 41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed,42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 Andbeing in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground
agōnia:a struggle for victory, wrestling
An angel brought Jesus the strength He needed to be in the will of God and finish his assignment.
Jesus was wrestling not just for Himself, but he wrestled for Peter and the disciples.
Hebrews 7:25 Jesus ever lives as our High Priest interceding and praying for us. HE WANTS US TO KNOW AND DO GOD’S WILL
Luke 22:31-32 NKJV
31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift youas wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me,strengthen your brethren.”
JESUS PRAYERS AND INTERCESSION IS WHAT EVENTUALLY BROUGHT PETER BACK TO FULFILL GOD’S WILL AND THE WORD GIVEN TO PETER!
COLOSSIANS 1:9,10 NIV
9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his willthrough all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
HEBREWS 10:7 WBT/PSALM 40:7
Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written concerning me,) to do thy will, O God.
PSALM 40:8 VOICE
I am pleased to live how You want, my God.
Your law(TORAH) is etched into my heartand my soul.”
*TORAH IS WRITTEN ON MY HEART.
THE TORAH WAS ORGINALLY KNOWN AS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS GIVEN TO MOSES BY GOD AS HIS WAY FOR LIFE AND WHAT IS GOOD.
Proverbs 6:23 AMP For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching [of the law] is light, And reproofs (rebukes) for discipline are the way of life,
The law of the Lord is perfect, [a]converting the soul The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.10 More to be desired are they than gold,Yea, than much fine gold;Sweeter also than honey and the [b]honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.
(Abraham kept the Torah before it was physically given, Adam did not obey Torah and that is why He and Eve were expelled from the garden)
THE TORAH IN JESUS DAY WAS ALSO USED TO INFER TO THE THE ENTIRE OLD TESTAMENT
THESE BOOKS WERE ALSO KNOWN AS THE TANAKH IN HEBREW & THE SEPTUAGINT A GREEK TRANSLATION OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
THE TORAH ALSO MEANS GOD’S INSTRUCTION AND THE ROOT WORD FOR TORAH MEANS TO HIT THE MARK!
Oh, how I love Your law (Torah)! It is my meditation all the day.98 Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, For Your words are always with me. 99 I have better understanding and deeper insight than all my teachers [because of Your word], For Your testimonies are my meditation.100 I understand more than the aged [who have not observed Your precepts],
Because I have observed and kept Your precepts.101 I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word. 102 I have not turned aside from Your ordinances, For You Yourself have taught me. 103 How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104 From Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way.105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
GOD’S WILL FOR JESUS WAS IN A SPECIAL BOOK, THE BOOK WAS THEN INSCRIBED OR IMPRINTED IN JESUS HEART AND SOUL.
Written in heaven there is a book that has the will of God for your life in it.
When you get to heaven believers will not be judged to get into heaven. Jesus has paid for you to be there. We will be judged by what God has written about us in our book.
Psalms 139:13-18 WEB
13 For you formed my inmost being.You knit me together in my mother’s womb.14 I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. 15 My frame wasn’t hidden from you, when I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth 16 Your eyes saw my body. In your book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there were none of them.17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is their sum! 18 If I would count them, they are more in number than the sand.When I wake up, I am still with you.
REVELATION 20:12 HCSB
I also saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged according to their works by what was written in the books.
1 JOHN 2:17 ASVThe world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of Godlives forever.
Say yes to do the Will of God!
2 Corinthians 1:18-22 NKJV
18 ButasGod isfaithful, our word to you was not Yes and No. 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me, Silvanus, and Timothy—was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes. 20 For all the promises of God in Him areYesthrough us. 21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us isGod, 22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
· I am anointed by God to do His will in a way that this world is not familiar with all for the Glory of God
· I will know and do the Will of God written about me
