Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven ( Part two)
The will of God has two meanings in the Bible, in many cases it refers to God’s holy law, the way He requires us to live. In this sense we must choose God’s will approving it by our obedience (Romans. 12:2).Jesus Himself chose to do what God required, in spite of going through intense suffering. God has revealed that it is His will that all people repent, be saved and enjoy eternal life.
The other meaning of the “will of God” refers to whatever God allows or permits in history, including pain and suffering. We can be confident however, that God is working for our good.(Romans .8:28)
Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,’
The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.
