While attending the tragic funeral of a 2 year old child, I learned something I’d never considered before about "God's Will.” This really ministered to me concerning both this child’s and my husband’s death. I feel it will minister to many others who have experienced devastating circumstances in their lives as well.
We should always pray for God's will to be done on earth as His will is in Heaven. But...let's not confuse believing that God's Will on earth can be found within the sins which bring tragic and dire circumstances upon our lives here.
When we pray for God's will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven…we are praying for Jesus's return! Oh glory! What a day that will be...
Sooo… when cancer strikes, or a horrific car accident occurs or even the murder of a loved one happens…these things are not "God's Will for how His children should live...or how they were to die.
When we are in the Will of God we experience Him and His peace. We have in us “A Touch of Heaven” here on earth.
Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us today the food we need
and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. Amen (Matthew 6:9-13 NLT)
