3. Align yourself with His view of the circumstances around you.
I must use the story of Jesus in the garden during His passion as the example of aligning ourselves to God's will.
Most of us are familiar with the prayer that Jesus prayed during His darkest trial in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Luke 22:41-42 says, "He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 'Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done'" (NIV). After agonizing and pouring out His soul unto death, Jesus resigned Himself to the will of the Father, praying, "Not my will, but Yours be done."
But something else happened to Jesus in the garden after He prayed. Notice the next verse: "An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him" (v. 43). My friend, this is so powerful. Always remember that after Jesus resigned Himself to God's will, the angels strengthened Him.
And so it is with you. It's after you resign yourself to God's will that the angels will come and strengthen you!
