Your Will Be Done


“He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, ‘My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.’”
Matthew 26:39

Obedience is not the absence of doubt or fear. It is an act of faith and trust. Jesus was a perfect example. He knew that His purpose was to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world. He also knew that His death would be an excruciating, painful ordeal. In His anguish He came to God His Father and asked if it was possible to let the suffering that He was to face be put off. But in the next breath, He chose to exercise the gut wrenching faith that you and I are called to follow. Against His circumstantial evidence, against His desire to be free from such terrific agony, He submitted Himself to His loving Father. His Father, our Almighty God, almighty in love, in knowledge and in power. Our Lord Jesus modeled the faith and trust that you and I need in order to live the life God has for us. He prayed, “I want Your will to be done, not mine.” That’s it, isn’t it? That says it all. Faith and obedience come together. Love and trust intersect. What is it you are struggling with? What is it that you can not understand? What difficulties have you at your wits’ end? Come to God. Follow Christ and in faith surrender yourself to your loving Father and pray what Jesus prayed, “Not my will Lord, but Your will be done.”

Father, there are so many times that I don’t know what to do. I am so perplexed, so troubled, but today I choose faith. I choose You. I choose to trust Your love and pray that “Your will” be done in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
