“YOUR WILL BE DONE”
Matthew 6:5-15 (10) – Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. (NIV)
When teaching the people how to pray, Jesus mentioned several facts about prayer. Among other essential points, in today’s Bible reading, He said, “Your will be done”. This means that we must acknowledge God’s supremacy over our requests in prayer and submit to what He wants for us. We saw this in action when Christ was about to be crucified. As a human, Jesus wished the situation could be averted, yet He said: “Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.” (Luke 22:42). If God’s plan was not fulfilled at Calvary, what would have become of humanity?
Beloved, nothing is as good as bowing to the will of God, which is the heart of joy and obedience. When we succumb to the Father’s purpose, we will not pray selfishly but intercede according to the leading of the Holy Spirit. “Your will be done” also signifies that we have a Davidic understanding to know that before we pray, God’s word is already settled; hence we conform to it (Psalms 119:89-96). Are there ways you have been hindering heaven’s purpose for your life in prayer? Repent and pray according to God’s will always. It shall be well with you!
Hymn: Take My Life, and Let it Be – Frances R. Havergal (1874)
1. Father, please forgive my selfishness and self-satisfied attitudes.
2. Father, I surrender to Your perfect will for my life, now and forever!
1. Father, please prosper the works of my hands according to Your will.
2. Father, oppose and put to shame every unrelenting attacker of my life and glory.
3. Father, let your love flow through our hearts, families, communities, and churches.
RELAX, YOU WILL NEVER BE PUT TO SHAME!
