Not My Will, But Yours Be Done

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

We have seen through this series of Revelation that the power of God will be put on display during the tribulation period. We know power is not something that will be newly attained, but something God has always had and will always have. That same power is at work in your life today.

We see in Revelation 20:13-15, “The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”

It is as clear as day, there will come a day of judgment. Not just for Satan and his demons, but for every man and woman who has ever lived. And because of that, we should be living in accordance now. Luke 22:42 says, “yet not my will, but yours be done.”

What are you struggling with? How are you trying to live according to your own will instead of God’s will? What are you doing that you know God would not be proud of? There is a day in which you will meet your Maker and stand before him face to face. And when you do, what will He say?

You do not have to wait for this moment, and then regret what you have done. The same power that is in Christ, is available to you and I, today. You can access that power, and choose to surrender it all to Christ. Choose to submit to His will instead of your own. If you are struggling with sin that you know He would not be pleased with, pray today, “Lord, not my will, but yours be done!”
