Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. 
(Jer. 1:5 AMP)
We are important to God and God not only wants to do good for us, but it is in His plan that we do good for Him. God choosing us to do His work is an awesome privilege, and evidence that we are important to Him.  

Relationships are not one sided; we cannot expect God to do good for us, without us doing good for Him. God is on a mission: and that is that not one of His children should perish. When we live the plan God has for us, we are partaking in His mission for His children to know His truth. No matter what part God has for you to do, it is important and it will be a demonstration of His love.
But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things [taken together will be given you besides.
(Matt. 6:33 AMP)
The fundamentals of us doing His greater works, and another part of our re-creation is to learn His way of living. When we learn to put God and His ways first we will live well in His Kingdom, we will be noted as His, and attract others to Him.

Ultimately living life His way is having our focus on His heart's desires, and thus we will be in the process of our re-creation to be a living example of Him, and for Him. That is the basics of our assignment and that is living the importance of life Jesus talked about in Matthew 6:25. Life has a greater meaning than just living to survive. If we spend our whole life just taking care of ourselves, we have missed the purpose of life, and the blessing of God.

God’s Kingdom way is one of giving; therefore we need to learn to give as well—imitating Him. Isn't that what a real relationship is about? We can't expect God to do good for us when we are not willing to do good for Him.  

Many times I have asked God why a good thing I have asked for hadn’t come to pass yet. He reminds me each time with the same answer, “As you take care of My requests, I will take care of yours." He was referring to my assignment. His concern is for His children to know Him and that He is good. My assignment is to prove His will is good and perfect by living my life His way, representing Him, and doing the assignment He gave me to do.
If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him!
(Matt. 7:11 AMP)
God already has good in mind for us and when we keep asking for good, He will give good to us. Sometimes the good we need at the moment isn't a thing, but to know His heart—to have the revelation of knowing He wants you and me to be a part of what He is doing. God recreating us to be like Him to show His love to those who don’t know Him is a revelation we need.

When we know the heart of God, we will also gain a surety, a trust in Him we didn't have before.
Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams] —
(Eph. 3:20 AMP)
God is our source and all we need; when we have Him at work in us, we have everything we need, and we will know that. When His power is at work in us, we will be blessed superabundantly, even more than we can ask or think, and we will experience that.

God shared this with me one day. He said if He took all of our requests and put them in a box, shook them up and dumped them on us all at once, like we might think He should, our lives would be a mess. He said He has a strategic plan for each of our lives and knows exactly when each good thing should happen, not at random, not always when we ask, but at the perfect time.

God not only wants to bless us superabundantly just because He loves us, but He wants to bring glory to His name as He does it. Therefore He plans the perfect time for our blessing, for our advantage and for the advantage of others to see Him at work.
As you live the plan God has for you, you will be His witness for others see His favor in your life. Our part is to be transparent and share with others our experience of how to get on the good path God has for us and encourage others to know that God has a good plan for them. Many think God is a wish, but He is really the way, a new way of life we need to learn.

God wants to show His faithfulness, His love and compassion to you; in fact He is calling out to you today, asking you, will you go for Me? Will you live the good life I planned for you, will you let me give you all the good I have in mind for you? Will you let Me love you?
