Not My Will

On the Mount of Olives, Jesus prayed one of the toughest prayers He had ever prayed. Though He knew what was ahead of Him, His prayer was, if there is another way, please don’t let it happen this way. Though He didn’t want to go through the pain, His prayer was that the Father’s will be done and not His.
Scripture Reference
Luke 22:42
saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”
Action Point
Like Jesus, we need to seek and to do the will of the Father. We need to go to Him in prayer, and say nevertheless not my will, but Yours, be done.
