GOD's WILL be DONE

 

Matthew 6:9-10

King James Version

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: 

Our Father which art in heaven, 

Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, 

Thy will be done in earth, 

as it is in heaven.


Still going about it, your way?

Struggling with something?

A decision?

A matter of timing?

There is a better way.

A sure way.

SURRENDER to the WILL of GOD.

That was the prayer JESUS taught us to pray.

That GOD's will "be done in earth, as it is in heaven".

COMPLETE obedience to GOD.

AS JESUS did, when He died on the CROSS, to save us.

We are to give our hearts to the LORD, and step out of the way.

Because only the LORD knows what is good for us.

Jeremiah 29:11-12

King James Version

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, 

saith the Lord, 

thoughts of peace, 

and not of evil, 

to give you an expected end.

12 Then shall ye call upon me, 

and ye shall go and pray unto me, 

and I will hearken unto you.


We do not have His vision.

We don't have the ability to see the WHOLE picture.

We do not have His heart.

Unless we have His SPIRIT in us, unless we're born again, unless we love Him, we can' really comprehend His ways.

1 John 5:3

King James Version

3 For this is the love of God, 

that we keep his commandments: 

and his commandments are not grievous.


If we rely on our wisdom, we shall fail.

If we rely on our pride, all the more we fall.

Proverbs 16:18

King James Version

18 Pride goeth before destruction, 

and an haughty spirit before a fall.


And the fall will be hard.

As JESUS witnessed the fall of Lucifer.

Luke 10:18

King James Version

18 And he said unto them, 

I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.


By ourselves, we can do nothing.

Only THROUGH JESUS can we be useful.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.


In JESUS is everything.

John 1:3

King James Version

3 All things were made by him; 

and without him was not any thing made that was made.


Colossians 1:16-20

King James Version

16 For by him were all things created, 

that are in heaven, 

and that are in earth, 

visible and invisible, 

whether they be thrones, 

or dominions, 

or principalities, 

or powers: 

all things were created by him, 

and for him:

17 And he is before all things, 

and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, 

the church: 

who is the beginning, 

the firstborn from the dead; 

that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, 

having made peace through the blood of his cross, 

by him to reconcile all things unto himself; 

by him, I say, 

whether they be things in earth, 

or things in heaven.


Who are we, to get in the LORD's way?

ALL resistance is futile.

GOD's will be done.

THROUGH His SON, JESUS.

SURRENDER to the WILL of GOD.

It is the only choice.

Proverbs 16:9

King James Version

9 A man's heart deviseth his way: 

but the Lord directeth his steps.


Relax.

Let go.

And LET GOD.

Watch what happens.
