“Thy will…” – Part 2

“Thy Will”
by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family

This song is my letter to God. As I ask some really hard questions, I hold onto the truth that there is so much to the story of my life that I can’t see, but that I still choose to trust Him. I can feel God telling me that He has work to do on the hearts of people who hear this song. It has been amazing to see the feedback of what people have gone through and what this song means to them. It’s been overwhelming and humbling.

I’ve been given an opportunity to talk with God more. The Lord’s Prayer was all I could pray in that time. I had divine appointments with God, and I came across The Message translation in Matthew 6. Where it says “Thy will be done,” The Message says “Do what’s best.” That was a huge moment for me. God’s will is what’s best. Even when it hurts, and even when I don’t understand, God’s will is what’s best. The way that that came together for me, I trusted God. Sometimes we don’t understand God’s promises until eternity. His ways are so much bigger than our ways. He sees the whole picture.

Which Bible verses connect to the message of the song?

2 Corinthians 1:20 (NIV): “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through Him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.”

Psalm 23 (NKJV): “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Matthew 6:7-13 (MSG): “The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and He knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this: Our Father in heaven, Reveal who You are. Set the world right; Do what’s best–as above, so below. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us forgiven with You and forgiving others. Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. You’re in charge! You can do anything you want! You’re ablaze in beauty! Yes. Yes. Yes.”

Romans 8:28 (NIV): “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

Isaiah 41:13 (VOICE): After all, it is I, the Eternal One your God, who has hold of your right hand, Who whispers in your ear, “Don’t be afraid. I will help you.”
