His Will Be Done

“Then Paul answered, ‘What do you mean by weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” Acts 21:13 NKJV
“So when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, ‘The will of the Lord be done.’ ”  Acts 21:24 NKJV

We would not always choose the path God does for ourselves or our loved ones.

Thank You, Lord, for the plans You have for each of us, that will bring glory to Your name.  And here is a simple poem . . .

When I think I know
where something’s headed
and none of it
looks good to me

I remember God’s will
to rejoice and give thanks
to trust Him more
and pray constantly.

God bless you as you are found ready to do His will!

Cheerful To Testify

“But the following night the Lord stood by him and said, ‘Be of good cheer, Paul; for as you have testified for me in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness at Rome’.” Acts 23:11

I love how God told Paul to be of good cheer in what didn’t appear to be a cheerful situation.

Thank You, Lord, for encouraging us as we labor within Your will. Please send a word of encouragement to those who need it today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Despairing

Be of good cheer
and do not fear
for the Lord
is right beside us.

We are still
within His will
and the Spirit’s
here to guide us.

Telling Jesus . . .what to do?

“When the day began to wear away, the twelve came and said to Him, ‘Send the multitudes away . . .'” Luke 9:12

Sometimes I do just what the disciples did . . .tell Jesus what to do. Gulp.

Thank You, Lord, for reminding me to want what You want, for Your will to be done in me and in this place today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Do What You Want

I see a problem
and just want it fixed

and without much thought
tell You to do it quick

forgetting what You taught me
about praying for Your will

resting in Your promises
trusting You more still.

Of Our Own Free Will

“If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the Lord.” Leviticus 1:3

For some reason I thought of free will as more of an A.D. term. But really it has always been a matter of choice.

Oh Lord, let me come often before You to offer up my own free will for Your will that frees me.

Offering Everything

How much shall I offer
of my own free will
to open the door just a crack
or to fling it wider still?
And what would it feel like
to give You all I have
unasked and unafraid
to live Your will for me instead?

What are some of your thoughts on free will?
