Luke 22:42 says “Father, he said, “if you will take this cup if suffering away from me. Not my will, however, but YOUR WILL BE DONE.”
Don’t we often feel this way? I don’t know about you but I’ve gone thru and still going through some stuff, tough stuff and sometimes it seems forever and no end in sight. Some times we give up on people or situations to soon.
Often we go thru something really really hard and we get weary. We ask God, can You remove this situation or can you deliver or change it now? But sometimes its the GOING THROUGH that we get freedom and victory.
We always want to be comfortable and not suffer but God didn’t call us to be comfortable!
Sometimes God calls us to go through hard things or situtaions for our benefit and refining. It could also be for someone else, for their benefit, or to change them or help them.
I have found more often than not the only way is to GO THROUGH the suffering or trial, and if we let Him, he will take whats hard and painful and use it for our good and for the good of others.
UNTO YOU O LORD DO I BRING MY LIFE.
Your will be done Lord and not mine. Give us the grace, strength, and mercy to keep pressing in into Your plans and purposes for us, in Jesus name, AMEN!!
Love and hugs,
