Let your will be done

“Father, let your will be done.” Jesus said this prayer when he was going to be persecuted by Roman soldiers. Jesus chose God’s way and was faithful even on the cross. Phill 2-8, “Who being in the very nature as God did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbles himself by becoming obedient to death-even death on a cross!

Not everyone chooses God’s way as the way of the Lord is “narrow”. Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” 

Apostle Paul chose God’s way and God used him mightily to spread the gospel. Fourteen out of twenty-seven books in the new testament have been attributed to Paul. A persecutor turned disciple of Jesus, Paul submitted himself fully to God’s divine will and purpose and gave himself to be served as God’s instrument. His letters still speak with the same power of conviction as it did centuries ago for Paul never relied on his own wisdom and understanding but on the mighty power of Christ that worked in him and through him to benefit others.

Centuries have passed since Jesus spoke those words but in every generation there will always be God’s children who cry out to the father “My father let your will be done in my life.” Following God’s will is looking at the father in every situation and imitating Jesus’ way. There is no better way to know the will of the Lord than spending time in his presence and learning from his word.

Are you wondering about God’s will in your life. Know for sure that if you have submitted your life to the Lord, you are at the right place and the Lord will bring new blessings into your life at the right time that will benefit everyone around you.
