Summary: God wants His will to be done in our lives

The world we are living right now is full of a lot of confusion, worry, anxiety , doubt and fear. So many are very disturbed about what we are hearing and seeing, our world in this time is very discouraging and majority do not understand what is going on and what to do anymore.

When God created the heavens and the earth everything was good - Genesis 1 and now the earth is in chaos and groaning for a release. God is a good God - Psalm 100:5 and faithful to His word. What God says is and cannot be changed, that is how faithful our God is.

God said this to us in Jeremiah 1: 4 - 12

Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument],

And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own];

I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Then I said, “Ah, Lord God!

Behold, I do not know how to speak,

For I am [only] a young man.”

But the Lord said to me,

Do not say, ‘I am [only] a young man,

Because everywhere I send you, you shall go,

And whatever I command you, you shall speak.

Do not be afraid of them [or their hostile faces],

For I am with you [always] to protect you and deliver you,” says the Lord.

Then the Lord stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me,

“Behold (hear Me), I have put My words in your mouth.

See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms,

To uproot and break down,

To destroy and to overthrow,

To build and to plant.”

The Almond Branch and Boiling Pot

The word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see the branch of an almond tree.” Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am [actively] watching over My word to fulfill it.”

God is whom He says He is and there is no disputing that fact, He says to us that He knew us before we were formed in our mother's womb, therefore He as put His will in us to carry out here on earth. But many of us are not actually walking in His perfect will for our lives and that is where the confusion comes in. And where there is confusion the will of God cannot be done in our lives.

Jesus prayed a powerful prayer in Matthew 26: 36 - 46

The Garden of Gethsemane

Then Jesus came with them to a place called [a]Gethsemane (olive-press), and He told His disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” And taking with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee [James and John], He began to be grieved and greatly distressed. Then He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, so that I am almost dying of sorrow. Stay here and stay awake and keep watch with Me.”

And after going a little farther, He fell face down and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible [that is, consistent with Your will], let this cup [b]pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “So, you men could not stay awake and keep watch with Me for one hour? Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the [c]body is weak.”

He went away a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.” Again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. So, leaving them again, He went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words once more. Then He returned to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Listen, [d]the hour [of My sacrifice] is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners [whose way and nature is to oppose God]. Get up, let us go. Look, My betrayer is near!”

Jesus said the same prayer three times in the following verses

Verse 39

And after going a little farther, He fell face down and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible [that is, consistent with Your will], let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.”

Verse 42

He went away a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done
