Your Will Be Done

Not what I will, but what you will.
                  —Mark 14:36

Is your will ever at odds with the will of your Father?

If so, Jesus understands, for he faced that disparity of wills: in Gethsemane his will and the Father’s were not in sync.

He prayed that he not be forced to face the dreadful hour and drink the bitter cup. But when God’s silence made clear that the hour had to be faced and the cup had to be drunk, he yielded to the ghastly mission with submission: “Yet not what I will, but what you will.”

May God give you strength to face your difficult hour and drink the bitter cup with the same prayer on your lips.

We see little and know little.
He sees all and knows all.
