Yielding to God

“Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” Mark 14:36


Yielding to God’s will is one of the most difficult things to do and to teach. Our (sinful) nature is to think of ourselves. I don’t mean being selfish. It is just how we see life. Peter hear Jesus speak of the disciples abandoning him. His first reaction was to say he, Peter, would not do such a thing. He missed the big picture because he only thought of his own response. Jesus shows a different way. Jesus faces his own death, but then says, “Not what I will, but what you will.” We were saved by that approach. What if I were to stop worrying about my own success or failure, my own comfort or distress, and ask God make his will be done in my life? What do you think would change if that became our approach to life today? Can we stop making it about “ME?”

Father, help me to make this day about you and what you want to do through me. Amen.
