Prayer for God’s Will: Are you at a crossroad of confusion
over what decisions to make? Do you feel confused about a
dilemma you're already plunged into?
On another note, are you passionate to know the mind of God
for your life? Are you interested in identifying God's choice of
a marriage partner, business partner, or other areas of your
life? This prayer is for you.
What God's Will Is: The will of God is His intention and
design over a matter or person. Whenever there is conflict
between our desire and His, life gets tougher for us than
necessary, so we will have to bend ours to His own. The Lord
Jesus Christ was in straits within Himself as He prepared for
the cross because His flesh was warring against His Spirit.
Matthew 26:38,41-42 says,
“Then saith He unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful,
even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with Me…Watch
and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is
willing, but the flesh is weak. He went away again the second
time, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if this cup may not
pass away from Me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.”
What the Will of God Will Give You: Even Jesus did not just
pay the ultimate price ordinarily but also because He looked at
the reward He stood to gain afterwards.
“Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who
for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the
throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).
Surrendering to the will of God, and paying attention to know
and follow His will are not too easy to do as they may sound.
But it worth commendating.
