Thy Will be done

Dearly beloved,
In Gethsemane, Jesus was experiencing the heights of agony. Gethsemane is commonly called as the ‘Oil Press’ where the olives undergo a process of being broken down into pieces and crushed in order to obtain olive oil. Jesus was aware that He was going to undergo such a tormenting process. When He remembered this He would have felt very sad and low in spirit. But He took courage and addressed Gethsemane as a battle field where He was about defeat Satan and his powers. Jesus was aware that Gethsemane is the place where the will of God is going to be done on earth. He prayed to the Father “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will” (Matthew 26:39).

 There was none in this world who could understand Jesus. Though He was God, He was fully man as He walked on this earth. He knew what was going to happen to Him, yet His heart was full of burden. Though He submitted to God’s will, when the time came for its fulfilment, He prayed for the cup to be removed from Him. But, after he prayed, an angel came and strengthened Him. At last, salvation for mankind was fulfilled perfectly because of His submission to God’s will. 
My dear friend, is this your condition? Do you lament “Why is this happening to me though I have surrendered myself to do God’s will?” Are you bewildered, thinking whether you are in the centre of God’s will? The Psalmist says in Psalm 29:11, “The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.” The cup of discouragements and frustrations may dishearten you to the extent of saying, “Enough Lord. I can’t bear this anymore.” But my beloved children of God! Let me assure you “...those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint” (Isaiah 40:31).  When you are in times of difficulty, offer this prayer like Jesus – “Father, let Thy will be done.” Then, you will receive special strength and revelation from heaven. The word of God says “…Doing the will of God from your heart” (Ephesians 6:6). When you obey God from your heart you will rise with wings like an eagle and fly high. ‘His will’ will be fulfilled in your life perfectly. All your anxieties will come to an end. Be of good cheer. 
Loving Father, 
I am blessed perfectly through the finished work of Jesus on the cross. Father, I bring my cup of discouragements, worries and frustrations to You. Even now, send Your angels to serve me and fill me with divine strength. Let Thy will be done in my life. 
In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
