He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.” Matthew 26:42
Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword. Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels? How then will the Scriptures be fulfilled, which say that it must happen this way?” Matthew 26:52-54 NASB
Your will be done. How many of us can truly say to God, “Your will be done”?
Many of us can say it until that will goes against our pampered lifestyle, our will, our wants, our idea of how it should be.
Jesus knew what He was about to face and was up front with the Father that if there is a way out He would take it BUT only if it was the Father’s will. At any time Jesus could have called on the Father to send help, as He told Peter and others around Him.
Jesus fulfilled the Father’s will just as the Scriptures predicted. At some point in time, the Scriptures are again going to be fulfilled when Jesus returns. In the meantime the world around us will turn more and more away from God and persecution of the saints will increase.
🌹 How are you living? God’s will be done?
Continually Seeking Him,
