Daily Challenge-Yield to God’s Will

March 30th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK-In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to remember Jesus’ prayer in the Garden just before He was arrested.

Jesus understood the gravity of the moment.  Hope for the human race depended on the mission of Jesus. That time was approaching for Him to be handed over to the Gentiles for crucifixion. He was in great anguish.

In Luke 22:42, Jesus prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

The next day, Jesus hung on a cross. This request is a powerful reminder that Jesus was God’s Plan A, and there was no Plan B.

Jesus yielded to His Father’s will, even though it was the way of suffering. His example moves us to be humble before God and submit ourselves to His plan whatever the cost.

Take the daily challenge to remember Jesus’ prayer in the Garden and yield to God’s will on the journey of faith.
