Thy Will be Done (Or the Challenge Of Surrender)
Father, if I pray that Thy will be done, I must be prepared to stay before You. I cannot hear from You by simply praying a quick prayer and jumping up in my spirit from my surrendered stance. I must take time to allow You to infiltrate my heart and mind. All of the cares, and confusion of the day have to be laid at the altar and I must direct my thoughts God-ward. I realize that it is important that I sit in Your presence and allow You the opportunity to download what it is that You want me to perceive for the day. You are Almighty God and I cannot put You on my time clock.
Life is hectic and I realize that there are things that must be done throughout the day. But it is imperative that I reserve designated time for You. If I have to, I will arise earlier than normal to assure that my day begins by giving You my allegiance. You are number One in my life Jesus. I must consciously move everything and everyone else to a distant second in my life.
