The Will to Do God’s Will
by Charles R. Swindoll

Our Father who art in heaven, 
Hallowed be thy name.
Matthew 6:9, RSV

By merely reviewing the first few lines of the Lord's Prayer, we gain a renewed respect . . . a healthy and wholesome sense of reverence for our Almighty God and Father. 

Rather than causing us to run from Him and hide in fear, I find that such an awesome respect makes me want to come close to Him, to wait quietly for Him to work. 

And so I urge you to slow your pace, to approach His "hallowed name" thoughtfully. 

Take time! 

Give Him the respect He deserves. Wait on God. 

In return, He will give you a clearer vision. Furthermore, He will soften your will and make you want to know and do His will.
