On Earth As It Is In Heaven

   In the model prayer, that is sometimes called, “The Lord’s Prayer,” there is that line, “Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” As I understood the Bible, God’s will is absolutely going to be done on earth, because He works all things after the counsel of His own will. However, the prayer is that it be done, as it is done in heaven. How is that? It is instantaneously, without any hesitation. On earth, God’s will is often done after we have drug our feet, and sometimes, with us kicking and screaming while we do it. What a liberating day it will be for us, when we realize that the happiest times of our life are the times that we are joyfully carrying out the will of God.
