Thy Will Be Done




Thy Will Be Done by Andrew Murray PREFACE In the will of God Creation has its origin, its existence, its happiness, its power, its glory. In the will of God Redemption, too, has its origin, its maintenance, its blessedness, its power, its glory. To the will of God even so the life of grace in the heart owes its origin, its maintenance, its blessedness, its power, and its glory. In knowing and loving, in doing and bearing, in fulfilling all that will, the spiritual life finds its growth, its rest, its joy, its strength, its fruitfulness, its everlasting blessedness. The one thing needful for a Christian is that he live in the will of God. Whether it be Godís will in His Providence in time, or His Purpose in eternity, Godís will in His Precepts or His Promises, he that lives in the will of God will there find God Himself and all His salvation. May God teach us that as His will is the one cause and the power of all that He does in the showing forth of His glory, and of all that His Son did and does for our redemption, so the one thing His child needs is to prove that his whole life is the manifestation of the power and glory of Godís blessed will. With the prayer that God, by His Holy Spirit, may reveal this to each reader of this little book Yours in Christ Jesus, ANDREW MURRAY
