Your Will Be Done
All through our lives we have based our decisions about life on the information we have received from the world. Mostly through our five senses, and our mind. Some through experience. And others by association with others. The most critical to our choices has always been "self-preservation". For if we couldn't keep ourselves alive, then the rest is immaterial.
The ability to give ourselves to the will of some-one else can only be done one way. In love. Love is the only thing stronger than survival. Where there is love there is self-sacrifice, to the object of that love. This love comes from the knowing of the person who is loved. Not in a theory, but in a fact. By introduction and experience. With understanding and full acceptance of the worthiness of the person.
This is to be our walk. So that as we come to know God, we are changed into willing vessels of His love. To be so secure in His love that we no longer count our lives dear to us. But rather to be spent on the will of God. We are called to "die to self", and live for the glory of God. Such was the walk of Jesus. This is done by the love of God shed abroad in our hearts. As Jesus said; "that the world may know that I love the Father, and always do what pleases Him." Even unto death, and that on a cross.
This is totally different from the natural man. A whole different mind set. To spend our live for the will of another. Even to be willing to die, if it's expedient to the will of God. This is the fruit of the Spirit, the supernatural endowement of love. It is not in man, but in God. That one would lay down his life for "his enemies". Neither is this a trial after the flesh, but a high calling, to "share in Christ's suffering." To glorify the Son of God, by following in his example.
This is not a work of happenstance or the wiles of the devil, but of the love of God. Ask Peter; three times Jesus asked, Peter do you love me? Then after commissioning Peter, Jesus told him how he would bring glory to God in his death. This after the love was confirmed in Peter. This is a work in the mature, those who have gone to great heights in their walk with God. Those who by experience have come to grasp the love that God has, and the perfection of His will. Counting anything else rubbish, to abtain to the high calling of God for their life. To be counted worthy to suffer for Christ's sake.
