Your Will Be Done

How hard is it to pray, “Your will be done”? ¬†Especially when you are in times of trouble. And yet this is exactly what is required. Not that you should not ask for specific relief from God, but that you accept his will and his timing is better for you than your own.
I don’t pretend to understand all the nuances of this dilemma. As I see it, it is a matter of faith. As my dad used to say, “There are a lot of Christians to be found when trouble arrives, but not so much at other times.” What we miss is the fact that whatever faith we can muster is enough for God to reach us.
Consider Peter as he walked out on the water to Jesus. When his faith was strong he had no problem waking on the water, but when his faith faltered, he began to sink. Jesus did not abandon him as his faith faltered. Instead He reached out to Peter to save him. ¬†Peter’s weakness of faith resulted in Jesus rescuing him.
Looking closer you can see that if you have faith, even in its weakest moment, God is faithful to be there for you.

  3. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  4. It’s actually very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, so I just use world wide web for that reason, and obtain the hottest information.

  5. This is when a good DUI attorney will be able
    to come to your assistance to prove your innocence if not lessen the charges
    filed against you. To locate a private investigator, they can find listings by state at lawinfo.
    The New Hampshire DUI attorney you would like to hire will be
    authority in DUI and DWI laws of the state, how many days time you have for defense to
    the knowledge about legal loopholes and technicalities that can help defend you well.
    The Attorney Daniel Hynes has also taken the 40-hour course on Field Sobriety Testing Instructor that makes him the
    right DWI guy to defend you. Your lawyer is much more aware
    of the legal details regarding DUI cases (that is why you are hiring them) than you are.
