“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)
Lord, I have a lot of trouble with that concept.
Mine runs ahead of Thine.
Give me this or give me that, I pray.
Bless this plan for me, I pray.
It’s the George-centered life, not the God-centered life that I pursue.
It’s not only selfish. It’s incredibly presumptuous that I ask you to follow my lead.
So, I pray again, straining to follow Christ’s example:
Not my will, but thy will. “Thine…not mine.”
Place me on your path, in pursuit of your priorities, through the example of Jesus and the inspiration of your Spirit. Amen.
