I must continually cling on to the promises of God and choose to love him daily because He First loved me

Abiding by His Will

When you pray “May Your will be done Oh Lord.” This has got to be one of the hardest prayers, because God’s will requires one to submit to Him even when circumstances mean pain in the flesh.

When Jesus went to pray at the Mount of Olives, Luke 22:42 “Saying, Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless not My will, but Thine, be done.” (KJV) He was submitting to God’s will, He too, prayed that the burden of pain, suffering, rejection and death be removed from Him.

I remember one day listening to Joyce Meyer, she said, “Don’t pray to God, that His will be done if you are not ready to be obedient to it.” God’s instructions defy the human and earthly norms and they always require us to walk in trust and faith.

Personally, I do struggle with this prayer, because it means that I have to prepare myself to be in uncomfortable circumstances for the sake of His great purpose and will in my life. So whenever you pray such a prayer remember to ask God to grant you many graces to labor through the hard times.
