Those who work earn wages and when those wages for work are given those wages are under the will of the worker. We now have a decision to join Jesus and say not my will but yours be done or continue to exercise our will and do what we want with our wages. Many people can’t surrender their will that is why they love “working” and “earning” wages so they can do what they want with their money. People even view the stimulus money they received as their money because they pay taxes. More exercising of “my will” being done as they buy something yet again.
The greatest challenge believers have is surrendering their will, especially if they “earned” what it is God is asking them to surrender. Our will is exercised so much it is the hardest thing to surrender because it is strong. I would purpose that “our will” is what gets in the way of us experiencing the grace of God that is unlimited power to succeed in every area of our life. Our will’s strength is why we struggle to hear God let alone obey what we hear. Doing our thing, our way, is our will at work and is the reason we struggle with the words of Jesus that say, “Not my will, but Yours O God be done.”
Practice surrendering your will if you want to do God’s will and watch grace empower you to do more, love more, give more, Be more than your will ever could. Loose yourself from the power of your will, your way and you will find real life.
Matthew 10:39 “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”
