Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10
Every person has many thoughts as to what should or should not happen. Most often these thoughts are dealing with their own personal lives. Others have thoughts about situations that they know about and often don’t have any control over.
The common factor in choosing or desiring what should occur is how much the action effects the individual with the thoughts. The more it affects the individual, the more he wants it done his way, rather than some other way.
During His teaching on how to pray, Jesus told the disciples to pray that God’s will be done here on this earth in the same way it is done in heaven.
One of the most important things that occur when someone chooses to follow Jesus, is that he allows God to be in total control. In order for one to follow Jesus he must be willing to deny self and allow Him to lead the way. It becomes all about Jesus and His kingdom, not self.
Having it all about God is best because God knows what is best for every person involved. An individual may think he knows what is best for a situation, but it is God’s way that is truly best. When the believer realizes this, he will pray as Jesus taught, that God’s will be done, not his own personal desires.
The believer must be willing to ask God for anything, but at the same time, be willing to let God make the final call. Too many people get upset when God does not do it their way. They must remember that it is not all about them and their desires, but about God and His kingdom. God works in ways that is best for everyone.
You may be praying to God about some situation in your life and have a desire for a certain outcome. There is nothing wrong with that desire, but be willing to let God be in control and have His way be done. God will work the situation in a way that will be the perfect way for you and everyone else.
This action of God’s may or may not appear good right now, but you must know in your heart that it is the best. Seek and pray that it is always God’s desire that occurs in every situation in your life and on this earth.
Today I pray that you will seek God in prayer every day; that you will seek God’s desire in your life; that you will allow God to be in total control; and that you will do what God wants of you in every situation.
