Not as I will, but as you will.
Jesus is King of an unending kingdom, but his earthly life was not unending. And its ending was brutal. Whips. Nails. Thorns. Spit. Scorn. The Cross.
“He prayed with loud cries and tears to the One who could save him from death” (Heb. 5:7). In the garden he fell face down and prayed for deliverance from the ghastly ordeal: “Abba, Father … Take this cup from me.”
“Yet not what I will, but what you will,” he said.
Let your pains be made plain, your frustrations be made clear, your wishes be made known. Tell him where you hurt and what you want.
But don’t forget the PS: Yet not what I will, but what you will.
When God says “My grace is sufficient”
what he means is “My grace is sufficient.”
