“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” (John 6:38)
We must know what we want, but, clearly, our will needs to be subject to His will. If we are indecisive or in doubt, His will must always win. How do we know this? We must say NO to everything that contradicts His Will. To know His will we must be connected to Him. How? By reading the Bible, paying attention to what we learn in church, and also through prayer. Remember what you learned last month about prayer? It is not a beautified or rehearsed speech, but a sincere and direct conversation with God, always using the Name of Jesus, which gives us access to God. It is only through prayer that we can tell Him what we need, and that we want to do only His Will. We can trust that what we asked for will happen if it is the will of God. Our heart does not think. Has it happened to you before that you want a toy or something that you saw on TV, and then you insist for your parents to get it for you and when you do, you use it a bit and then forget about it? You thought you really wanted it, but once you had it, you got bored with it easily. That serves as proof that we don’t always know what is best for us.
Activity: This idea of the cubes is to learn that each part of our body has it’s function, just as each one has something special for God.
Can the head walk?
Can your feet think?
Can the nose see?
The eyes smell?
No, no, no !! We need the feet to walk and the head to think … of course the eye sees and the nose smells. We also need each other, nobody is better than anyone else. Each has a gift, but we are all part of the body of Christ. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Tiago 4.6
