Thy Will Be Done

We must learn to trust in God’s will, so that we can accept God’s no! Jesus prayed to God 3 times saying, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.”(Matthew 26:42). Jesus’ cry for relief wasn’t greater than God’s plan. You see, Jesus knew His Father well enough to understand that it might not be His will to remove the cup. So the story does not end with the words, “And the Father repented of the evil He had planned, removed the cup, and Jesus lived happily ever after.” The “cup” aka God’s will was non-negotiable! With sweat like blood Jesus earnestly sought to understand The Father’s will. Though the text is not explicit, it is clear that Jesus left the garden with the Father’s answer to His plea and it was Jesus’ response that led Him to the cross on Calvary!
