Grace for you today !
God watches over you !!
“Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”
And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”
Luke 22:42, 44 NKJV
The Lord Jesus was in agony as He prayed, whether to take upon Himself the doom of the world or else to allow the doom to come to the whole world as they deserved.
The struggle was between God the Father’s will to save the world at the huge cost of allowing His only Son to suffer in the place of sinful man vs Jesus’ will to avoid this only not to be tainted in His Holiness which is the very essence of His being, resulting in losing His fellowship with the Father by taking the sin of the entire world.
My beloved, many times we are confronted with challenges , unable to do what we are supposed to do or unable to refrain from doing what we ought not to do . Our will is enslaved.
Look at the verse again. Jesus sweat blood so that we could be delivered from this enslavement. His blood empowers our will to do God’s will !
Praise Jesus 🙏🏽
