And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. Mark 14:36
This truth right here is probably the one of the hardest things that I deal with in my Christian life. How many times have I been able to say, “not my will but Yours” to God? The worst part about it is that many times I simple do not even think about what God wants and do my own thing. I don’t ask God what His will is. There are other times where I can see God’s will clearly but decide that my way is better. In both of these cases I am setting myself up for failure. Only by following Jesus’ example and obeying God will will I find victory over sin and direction in my life. Am I willing to let go of my will in exchange for what God wants?
