‘Thy will be done…’
We say these words week after week as part of the Lords prayer. I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that, sometimes, I just say them mindlessly without a second thought as to what they actually mean for me.
We’re saying that we want to be living within God’s will.
It occurred to me earlier…even if we don’t get the result WE want next, is it the result that GOD wants?
As a family, I’d like to think that we are after God’s heart.
Then why would we be so upset if it wasn’t God’s will? Surely we should be thanking the BAP advisors for steering us clear of a life outside of the will of God.
You’ve read about Jonah right?? He tried to live outside of God’s will and he was thrown off a boat! I don’t want to be thrown off a boat! (Metaphorically speaking!!) Even if living inside of the will of God was as equally appealing!!
How do you know if you’ve heard right?? This is my husbands 2nd BAP…and last time we were 100% sure, we were so excited and couldn’t wait to start training etc etc etc….Now, we are still 100% sure…well maybe 99.9% sure…the doom and gloom of last time hangs over us still and there’s a part of us that finds it hard to trust again. I know you have to take into account the fact that people are human and can hear things wrong, in any situation. We could have heard wrong. The BAP advisors could have heard wrong.
Where does faith come in?…I guess we need to have faith that God has blessed these humans (BAP advisors) with the ability to really hear from Him, clearly.
Maybe having faith is the key to living in God’s will? Prayerfully, we try to discern what the will of God is, then we have faith that we are there.
My prayer this week is that we stay in the will of God.
Whether that’s with a recommendation.
Or a non recommendation.
