Thy will be done

Jesus came to this world not only to give us our daily bread but He came to be the bread Himself. He said, “I am the bread of life.” (John 6:35). He continues to say that “Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” He left for us a legacy through which we inherit eternal life just by believing in Him. Believing in Him is to believe in all He taught mankind while He was on earth; believe in His divine sacrifice and His victorious resurrection. The price that He paid for all our sins, sickness and infirmities was completed on the cross on which He was nailed to. He gave Himself as ransom for our sins. How marvellous is our Lord! Bible says, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.” (John 15:13). Though we were sinners, Jesus called us His friends.   
In Gethsemane, Jesus was in the peak of agony. There was none in this world who could understand Him. Though He was God, He was fully man too when He walked on this earth. He understood what was going to happen to Him. His heart was full of burden. Even at that time He was steadfast to enlighten us as to how we can be called the children of God. He worked constantly to enlighten us to know who God is and how to approach Him.  We see Jesus submitting Himself to God’s will. When the time came for its fulfilment, He even prayed for the cup to be removed from Him. He said,“Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” (Luke 22:42) But, after He prayed, an angel came and strengthened Him. At last, salvation for mankind was fulfilled perfectly.
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 will of God? The cup of discouragements and frustrations may dishearten you to the extent of saying, “Enough Lord. I can’t bear this anymore.” At such times, offer this prayer like Jesus – “Father, Thy will be done.” Then, you will receive special strength and revelation from heaven. You will rise with wings like an eagle and fly high. ‘His will’ will be fulfilled in your life perfectly. As Jesus was resurrected from the dead, He will resurrect you as a new person, to be born again with godly attributes.  All your anxieties will come to an end. Your cup of agony will turn into a cup of joy. Be of good cheer.
Loving Father, I am blessed perfectly through Jesus’ work 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 Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.”
