Your Will Be Done

Jesus speaking with His disciples in Samaria:

Jesus *said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.
John 4:34 NASB

Jesus in Jerusalem:

“I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
John 5:30 NASB

Jesus speaking to the people:

For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.”
Matthew 26:39‭, ‬42 NASB

And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.”
Mark 14:36 NASB

saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.”
Luke 22:42 NASB

The Apostle Paul:

As we were staying there for some days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. And coming to us, he took Paul’s belt and bound his own feet and hands, and said, “This is what the Holy Spirit says: ‘In this way the Jews at Jerusalem will bind the man who owns this belt and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.’ ” When we had heard this, we as well as the local residents began begging him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but even to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” And since he would not be persuaded, we fell silent, remarking, “The will of the Lord be done!”
Acts 21:10‭-‬14 NASB

Jesus sacrificed His life for the sake of  humanity.
Paul sacrificed his life for the sake of Christ. What are you willing to sacrifice for the sake of Christ?

🌹Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
Matthew 6:10 NASB

Continually Seeking Him,



Decision Maker

And they prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two You have chosen to occupy this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.”          Acts 1:24‭-‬25 NASB

Where do we go for answers? Many of us are good at seeking God for the bigger decisions of our life or in our church family. Or are we?

The disciples were seeking God’s choice for who He wanted to fill the position of disciple to replace Judas. They spent time together in prayer to ask the One who knows the hearts of men.

God knows your needs and wants. He is looking out for your best interest just as a good Father does. He desires the best for you and so He will give you instruction and direction for what’s best just by asking Him. He wants to be a part of your life and help you to navigate it. Will you let Him?

Will you seek God and His will for all the decisions in your life? Will you pray for the small as well as the big decisions? Then will you obey His decision for you?

🌹 God is the best Decision Maker!
