Thy Will Be Done

(Matthew 6:10) Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven (KJV).
(Matthew 6:10) Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

The Lord’s Prayer is often referred to as The Model Prayer. It was given to the disciples as well as to us as a pattern, model, or guide for us when it comes to prayer. While it is often quoted in church or various occasions when prayer is needed or requested. It is in fact a model or a guide for us to use when it comes to Prayer. It teaches us how to address God when we pray as well as what concerns we should have when we pray. Before Jesus gave the disciples this prayer note what he says to them. (Matthew 6:7) But when you pray, do not babble vain words, as the nations. For they think that in their much speaking they shall be heard. (Matthew 6:8) Therefore do not be like them, for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him.

Pay close attention to the fact that God knows what we need before we ask Jeremiah 29:11 is often quoted. (Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. However do we live our lives knowing that God’s plans for us are not for evil but for good? Do we live our lives believing and realizing that God really does know what we need before we ask? (Hebrews 4:15) For we do not have a high priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted just as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:16) Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

God wants to help us and he will when we face life’s situations and problems but we must not allow them to shake our Faith. There is no situation that we face in life that catches God by surprise or off guard. Scripture reminds us (Philippians 4:6) Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:7) And the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. So maybe just maybe the most powerful Prayer that we can pray is for God’s will to be done. When we realize that his plans are not evil for us. When we focus on the fact that he knows what we need before we ask. Then just asking that his will be done not only in our lives but in the lives of others releases the super natural. God wants better for us than we want for ourselves and he knows what’s best.

Life presents us with problems, and various situations, there can be illness, emotional problems, financial issues, and just stuff. God knows and he cares there is nothing too hard for him or impossible for him to overcome. Death itself is no match for God even death must give up its hold when God says so. We must learn not to worry or fret and as the scripture said not to be anxious for anything. Why? Because God already knows, so next time you’re in a dilemma or face what seems or appears to be an impossible situation. Just ask God to let his will be done because his plans for us are for our good. He wants and he knows what’s best for us in Job the first chapter after he receives bad news and report after report. Look at Job’s response (Job 1:20) And Job arose, and tore his robe, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground and worshiped. (Job 1:21) And he said, I came naked out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. Jehovah gave, and Jehovah has taken away. Blessed be the name of Jehovah. (Job 1:22) In all this Job did not sin, nor charge God foolishly (MKJV).

It’s hard and it’s difficult but we must remember God never wanted anyone to get sick, broke, or die. We live in a sin sick world and as scripture warns us. (1Peter 5:8) Be sensible and vigilant, because your adversary the Devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone he may devour. Satan is out to get you not God but don’t fret because even satan can’t touch you once God intervenes. (Jude 1:24) Now to Him being able to keep you without stumbling, and to set you before His glory without blemish, with unspeakable joy; (Jude 1:25) to the only wise God, our Savior, be glory and majesty and might and authority, even now and forever. Amen. I pray that daily God’s will is done in our lives Be Encouraged and Blessed Minister Mike.
