What is it like, submitting to God’s will?
Recently, I was having a discussion with a relative about something they wanted for themselves. We were talking about praying to God about this goal that my relative wanted to achieve. She wanted to know that God would grant her what she wanted to achieve. I think this is where many of us, including believers, have difficulty with trusting God. Submitting to God’s will is not what we set out to do; instead, we want God to submit to our will.
I pointed out to her that she should pray about this goal, but when she prayed about it, she must show humility to God. I told her to pray the words, ‘If it is Your will…if it is not Your will, help me to receive Your answer and accept whatever that answer is.’
