39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You [will].” – Matthew 26:39 NKJV
Hello family, Here we truly see that Jesus dealt with the issues of being in human form. He knows what lies ahead. He knew all that he would have to endure. Here is our savior crying out to the heavenly father to provide a way out. But nevertheless he submits to the fathers will.
We all have thought and ideas of how we want our life to go and that is good, we should make plans but also remember that God has full right to totally rearrange them. And He wont force you to do His plans. He will let you run your self out until you finally come to Him. Why run when you will end up submitting anyway?
We should live our life with a nevertheless at the end instead of a period. In every plan you make don’t put a period on it but put a nevertheless. Why because we are not the captain of our lives God is. We are simply the first officer we can chart a course but the Captain can come in and totally redirect it because there are treacherous waterers to navigate. And He has all the updated maps and charts with the proper depth measurements.
