"My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working." (John 5:17)
We work and partner with what he is already doing in Heaven. The father works in heaven and we work with the Holy Spirit on earth. "So Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he "sees" the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise."
Once we discern our calling in Christ, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead is into the Father's will, so we can co-labor with heaven on earth. "For the Father loves the Son, and "shows Him" all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel." - John 5:19-20
THE KEY IS IN PRAYER AND WAITING
The context of the above Scriptures is Jesus and the intimacy he had with the father. In these verses we sense a great key to doing his will and manifesting his power. As we affirm and meditate on these verses, our expectation to apprehend and perceive will grow as we ask, seek, and knock (Matthew 7:7) to understand God’s purpose for our life. Jesus knew the key was in prayer and waiting. "Jesus often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed." - Luke 5:16. "Jesus also arose along while before daylight and prayed" - Mark 1:35.
The blueprints for His calling and purpose for our life already exist in heaven. There's already a true heavenly copy. For example, Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. God told him to "make all things according to the pattern shown to him on the mountain" - Hebrews 8:5. David was given the pattern for the Temple that his son Solomon would build too. (1 Chronicles 28: 11-19).
SPEAK IT OUT
We see it and proclaim it! Once we come to understand God’s purpose for our life, we see through revelation the heavenly example of what we are implementing in the earthly realm. Now, we co-labor with the Holy Spirit to bring that about and disciple others into that vision. We learn how to speak with authority in that realm, calling it forth in prayer.
"I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the tower; and I will keep watch to see what He will say to me," -- Habakkuk 2:1
We wait, pray, look and "see" what The Lord "says to me." We must see by revelation. It is key to manifesting his power.
