When you wake up each day, what is the first thing that you do? If you don't do this already, what if you were to take a few minutes each morning to spend with God. During this time, inquire about what He wants you to do today.
We want to do things our way because we think that we know best. We want to do things to be accomplished according to our plan by doing things the way that we want. If we would stop long enough to realize that we don't know best, we would be in much better shape.
When Jesus was praying the model prayer, He asked for God's will to be done "on earth as it is in heaven." Did you get that? By showing the disciples to pray this way, Jesus was in essence saying that it is not our will that needs to be done here, but God's will. Not only should we live this, but we should pray for it!
The next time our knees hit the ground, we should make it a priority to pray that God's will be done, not our own. Then, we should resolve to obey Him when He tells us what His will is. In this way, God is able to use us to accomplish His will.
