Matthew 6:10 (KJV) “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven”.
“Does it matter what people do? Whatever God says must happen! He does what He wants and no man can change His plans, this is why he is called God; no man can change him”. This was the response Judith got from her mom when she asked if God’s plan can change. “But, God said His plans toward us are good, why then are we going through all these troubles?” Judith asked her mom again.
Can God’s plan change? Can He change His mind? Are His plans affected by the response (actions) of men? I believe these are real questions that confront us.
In heaven, God’s will is always done and whatever goes against His will is chased out. Lucifer was chased out because of this. But the will of God is not always done on earth, it is because of this that Jesus says we should pray that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
In 1 Samuel 23:9-14, David asked God two questions: “will Saul come down, as thy servant hath heard?” and “will the men of Keilah deliver me up into his hand?” To both questions, God’s response was yes. But non of the things that God said yes to happened, why? Because David left the city. Another example is Nineveh. God did not destroy the city as promised, why? Because the people repented (Jonah 3).
Go into today knowing that for the will of God to be done on earth, in your family and life, you must play your part. You must pray and act accordingly.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I want to be the reason why your will is being done in my sphere, help me Lord so to live. Amen
