Thy Will Be Done

What does it really mean when we pray,” Your will be done” as we are instructed in Matthew 6? This morning I was working on homework and as I was reading about Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego and their trial by fire. If you have never heard or read this testimony of the power of God it is found in Daniel 3 and I recommend you read it for yourself. A quick explanation; the ruler that they served has created a statue that all people are to bow down and worship, they refuse because they worship the one true God Jehovah. The King is outraged and throws them into a furnace. God delivers them through this and the ruler changes his mind about Jehovah the God of the Hebrews. But before they are cast into this furnace we read these verses that are found in Daniel 3:16-18:



16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you.17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty.18 But even if he does not, we want to make it clear to you; Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”



Dan 3:16-18 (NLT)



When you read that you need to understand they were all about being obedient to the will of God. They knew what was required of them and were willing to give all they had to be obedient to God. That is what it really looks like when we as Christians today pray, “Thy will be done.” Have you ever prayed that prayer I have and it can come at a very heavy cost. The only thing I can tell you is that living the other way is not any cheaper or easier. I can promise you God will have His way in your life if you call on the name of Jesus as Lord and Savior. The choice is yours about how you will travel that road. Living in obedience and walking under His authority are always going to reap His blessings. The road is not an easy one that is why not many travel it; but those who do, find a great reward in the end. The next time you find yourself praying for the Will of God be sure you are prepared to go where he leds it might be a fiery furnace but were ever he leds; he goes before you and will bring you through it. Have a Blessed day as you walk in the light of God’s Word.
