Your Will Be Done

"Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
~ Luke 11:2 (NKJV)

For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
~ Romans 12:4-5 (NKJV)

"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!"
~ Luke 11:13 (NKJV)

Your Will be Done on Earth
Now that Jesus' blood has cleansed a place for His Holy Spirit to live, we are the means by which God's will is done on earth. Jesus could only be in one place at one time. We are His body—His eyes and ears, mouth and hands, arms and feet, etc—everywhere. We need only lay down will of Self and make room for the Spirit for which we ask. I ask the Father to give us His Spirit's ...
Love, to feel about others the way He does;
Understanding, to be able to think the way He does;
Wisdom, to have His perspective of situations;
Attentiveness, to not miss provided knowledge;
Discernment, between godless, goodly, and godly;
Purity, that my passions and desires are His own;
Humility, so I may serve with Jesus' personality;
Endurance, lest I quit when it gets difficult.

As It is in Heaven
If angels do the Father's will in heaven, their example is how it should be done on earth. They obey immediately, thoroughly, and with fullness of joy—singing as they go.

Father, fill us with Your Holy Spirit—our Comforter, Counselor, Keeper—that we may do Your will on earth in the same manner it is done in heaven.

  1. Anne, as a side note big congrat's on having Rachelle as your agent. I am more than thrilled for you and cannot wait to see what the Lord has planned for you!

  2. I am praying for you my friend.

  3. T. Anne, thanks. Believe me, I'm doing plenty of waiting myself! All in His perfect timing.

    Denise, thank you for praying. Mostly I need strength of spirit. Lately I need physical strength. Tendonitis in my hands from too much keyboard time is flaring up lately.

  4. What a tremendous responsibility we have to be His eyes and ears, mouth and hands, arms and feet. I think we would all do well to dwell on that more and to ask for those gifts of His Spirit.

    Prayers for your tendonitis, too. The hazards of a great writer!
