Taking Credit


“Thy will be done.” We pray this all the time, yet we rarely mean it. What we really mean is, “May Your will be the same as mine” don’t we? It is just so tempting to take our plans and put God’s name on them.

I’ve just had a chance to look back over the last several months and see God’s plan in action in my life. My plan would never have been what has happened, but it is all coming together to be exactly what needed to happen to get me ready for this point.

If we really mean, “Thy will be done,” then we need to trust that when a door closes, it is because we aren’t supposed to go that way. We need to trust that when things don’t seem to be going our way, God may be getting us ready for something we don’t even see coming. We can trust that the doors that are opened are meant for us to enter.

It’s when we truly let go and allow God to be ruler of our lives that we can see His work. It doesn’t mean that we don’t do any of the work. It just means that our work will be the most effective.

    Completely spot on. It’s hard to lt go! It is so completely frustrating almost all of the time. Faith and trust are the two qualities I pray to increase daily. Thanx for the inspiration. It came at the perfect time.
