Not as I will, But as thou Will





As the end came near for our Lord Jesus he became heavy hearted. He knew what was in store for him.


Matthew 26:38

My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

He asked the disciples to “watch with him”- to stay awake with him. Instead the disciples slept while our Lord went through torment and spoke to the God the Father.

Matthew 26:39

And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou [wilt].

Jesus knew what was coming and asked if there was any other way. His soul purpose was to do the will of the Father and knew that He would do exactly what the Father asked of Him.

Our loving, powerful Savior could have skipped, side stepped or ignored the Cross, but He understood what would happen to our souls and knew that he desired a communion with us for eternity!

We struggle with doing the will of the Father in Heaven. We have commands in scripture that directly speak of the will of the Father and we try so hard to side step them,change them to fit our flesh or even just ignore they are there.

Do you think eternally?

Do you realize that each decision you make towards the world affects your soul tomorrow?

Dear Saints as you begin your day consider this, what does _____________      (fill in the blank)  do for my eternal future?


May we all do the Will of the Father and pray for wisdom and strength to face the world with the love of Christ in our hearts and the Word of the Father on our lips.
