“Your will be done”

 

 

 

 

Luke 22:41-42…  And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”  (NKJV)

Jesus was praying to His Father in heaven, just before Judas and a mob were about to grab Him and take Jesus into custody…  We know Jesus was in anguish as He was praying, because we see this in Luke 22:44…  And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.  (NKJV)

Sweating blood is known as Hematidrosis…  “Hematidrosis is a condition in which capillary blood vessels that feed the sweat glands rupture, causing them to exude blood, occurring under conditions of extreme physical or emotional stress.”  See 1. For more info…

Jesus knew what He was about to go through…being crucified on the cross, and taking on the past, present, and future sins of the world…  It was perhaps the hardest thing Jesus would ever have to do in His mortal lifetime…  But Jesus ALWAYS obeyed His Father in heaven…

This should always be the way we as believers should want to live…  All that we say and do we should want to be the will of our Father in heaven…  We see this in the first part of the Model Prayer Jesus taught us in…

Matthew 6:9-10…  In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your
will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.  (NKJV)

How about you ??  If you are a “born again” believer, God has indwelt you with the Holy Spirit the moment your lifetime of sins were forgiven, and you were graced by God with salvation…  God has given you the Holy Spirit to guide and direct your life…  And since the Holy Spirit will ALWAYS urge us to do the will of God…we should never think twice when He gives us guidance that automatically has to be what the will of God wants for our lives…

God sees the entire future of our lives…  What the Holy Spirit has urged us to do, may not be what we want to do…  Our flesh is weak, and our heart is deceitful above all things…

Jeremiah 17:9…  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?  (ESV)

When you have a choice before you…don’t let your own choice be against what the Holy Spirit is urging you to do…  Do as Jesus did when He said this, with a very hard choice to make… nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”    Since God doesn’t make any mistakes…always listen and obey the Holy Spirit that God has given you to guide and direct your life…  You WILL be blessed for your obedience !!

Gracious God and heavenly Father, I thank You and praise You for who You are…  I thank You for Your saving grace…  I thank You for the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit living within me…  I pray Father, that everyone reading these words, will be urged by You to do what is right in Your sight…  For those who don’t know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior…I pray they are urged by You to open and obey the gospel of Christ presented below…  For Your redeemed, “born again” children…I pray that they always seek Your will, by being obedient to the Holy Spirit You have indwelt them with…  May lives be changed today, to live in Your will and Your ways…  I pray for this fullness of Christ that sets believers “ON FIRE” once again…in Jesus’ most precious name, and for His sake…Amen

Blessings in Christ,  bruce
