Jesus is the Amen. Revelations 3.14
He is not the Yes for the whims of the will of His followers. They can never forget their condition as servants.
As long as they are clothed in flesh, they will be servants, the same way that Jesus was a Servant in the days of His flesh. Hebrews 5.8
In other words, Christians are servants, servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.
For this reason, their will must be subject to the Lord and can never prevail over the will of their Lord.
An abundant life does not give them the right to be masters.
There is only One Lord.
Therefore, those who are servants must submit their will to the will of their Lord.
Isn’t this what Jesus did with His Father?
Who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. Hebrews 5.7-8
No matter how high or better the level of a servant may be in this world, he will never be master.
In practice, what does this mean?
It means that, despite being a prince, son and servant, when a person wants to remain a servant, he must submit his will to the will of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The prayer: “Oh God, in the Name of Jesus, do this or that…”, besides not pleasing the Lord, it does not work.
But the prayer: “Oh God, in the Name of Jesus, I ask You for this or that, but let it be done according to Your will.”
This kind of prayer will always reach the Throne, and there will be a ‘yes’ from the Amen.
It may seem like it takes a while for the answer to come, but sooner or later, it will come in the time He has determined.
