When we pray the Lord’s prayer, which is written in the Gospel of Matthew 6:9-13, verse 10 states…“your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Take a moment to think about that…we are asking for the will of God to be done on earth every time we pray this prayer. So, after we speak the words, what’s next? God’s will is done by people willing to seek Him and His will rather than their own wants and desires. But then we think, ‘then I won’t get what I think is right for me.’ The thing is what we do receive is so much more than we ever imagined possible on our own with our own plan. We need to learn to trust in the Lord and seek His will. Amen.
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God…”
