Tag: Your Will Be Done

On Earth As It Is On Earth

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

The Lord told us to pray “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” That’s not only a prayer, it’s a secret to living victoriously in God. The key is to live your life on earth as it is in heaven. Most believers live on earth as it is on earth. If we’re having troubles on earth, we live troubled. If we’re having setbacks on earth, we live discouraged. If we’re having people trespassing against us on earth, we live in anger or bitterness, or unforgiveness. We let our peace, our well-being, and our joy go up and down – all because we’re living on earth as it is on earth. Don’t live in your situation as it is in your situation, or in your emotions as it is in your emotions. That’s all on earth as it is on earth What matters is how it is in heaven. Stop living “on earth as it is on earth” life, and start living “on earth as it is in heaven life.” In heaven, it’s blessed. And your life will be just as this when you start living on earth as it is in heaven.

Today’s Mission – In what ways are you living your life “from earth,” from your problems, from your circumstances, from yourself? Start changing that. Start seeking to live your life in every way – from above.

“The Secret of the Lord”

Oswald Chambersby Oswald Chambers

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him… —Psalm 25:14

What is the sign of a friend? Is it that he tells you his secret sorrows? No, it is that he tells you his secret joys. Many people will confide their secret sorrows to you, but the final mark of intimacy is when they share their secret joys with you. Have we ever let God tell us any of His joys? Or are we continually telling God our secrets, leaving Him no time to talk to us? At the beginning of our Christian life we are full of requests to God. But then we find that God wants to get us into an intimate relationship with Himself— to get us in touch with His purposes. Are we so intimately united to Jesus Christ’s idea of prayer— “Your will be done” (Matthew 6:10)— that we catch the secrets of God? What makes God so dear to us is not so much His big blessings to us, but the tiny things, because they show His amazing intimacy with us— He knows every detail of each of our individual lives.

Him shall He teach in the way He chooses” (Psalm 25:12). At first, we want the awareness of being guided by God. But then as we grow spiritually, we live so fully aware of God that we do not even need to ask what His will is, because the thought of choosing another way will never occur to us. If we are saved and sanctified, God guides us by our everyday choices. And if we are about to choose what He does not want, He will give us a sense of doubt or restraint, which we must heed. Whenever there is doubt, stop at once. Never try to reason it out, saying, “I wonder why I shouldn’t do this?” God instructs us in what we choose; that is, He actually guides our common sense. And when we yield to His teachings and guidance, we no longer hinder His Spirit by continually asking, “Now, Lord, what is Your will?
