Thy Will be Done (Matthew 6:10)

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. -Matthew 6:10

As I mentioned in one of my podcast recordings, it is hard and somewhat uncomfortable for humans to permit God to do his will. 

When this prayer point was dropped on my spirit as the first on the list for the prayers we had to do for 2021, I was a bit displeased. 

Even if I had this prayer point written down as something I would share, I found myself changing the prayer point to Lord, let your kingdom come. 

The unexplainable happened when I was recording on the 2nd of December. Even if I had all five prayer points written, I used Lord, let your will be done instead of what I wanted to say.

I realized I shot myself in the foot when I started the explanation. Even if it was against my will to use this prayer point dropped on my spirit, God let his will prevail.

I am one who has always endeavored to give Jesus the wheel. Why was I taken aback to ask for his will to be done? Regardless, Jesus took the will of my hands and let the will of the father be done.

Putting this in writing makes me realize or see this whole encounter as an experience. I wanted something, but what was needed was placed on my lips.

Perhaps the memory of my Bible story still makes me feel like the will of God involves someone getting hurt. Do you remember Matthew 26:39? It is the story about when Jesus was being taken to the persecution ground.

"And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt." - Matthew 26:39

Ultimately, he was hung on the cross, which was God's will for him. I remember the first time I heard this story in primary school. My heart was broken. I saw Jesus as a superhero, and I expected that something should have happened that could take him out of that situation.

Although it may have seemed unfortunate to my limited understanding at the time, he died but for something bigger than death, the reconciliation of the world to God. 

Jesus lost his life for the will of God to have the world saved to be actualized.

Moses lost his place in the palace for God's will to deliver Israel to be realized.

Joseph lost his family for God's will to rule Egypt and save the Israelites in the time of famine.

Isaiah was saved for the will of God to protect interested people to be established.

I lost the opportunity of school in Canada for the will of God to connect me with my husband and save my life.

We might not agree with his will, or sometimes we grumble about what he wants for us. But he is the master strategist. He specializes in making impossibilities possible. He knows the end before the beginning.

To further help you learn of God's will, I have linked some helpful posts at the end of this post.

I call on you to join me in this season as my team, and I pray for 2021.
