Good morning.


Our picture of Jesus is that He had it all together; always on the front foot. We read that He was tempted on every way, yet was without out sin.


When Jesus walked on earth He had to deal with His emotions. We read of when Jesus was with Peter and the 2 sons of Zebedee in Gethsemane, that He began to be sorrowful and troubled.


Jesus prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will." (Matthew 26:39) He prayed a second time, "My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done." (Matthew 26:42)


Wow! What a challenge! When we are in a predicament our prayers are usually focused on ourselves and the outcome for ourselves (or us it only me?) Seldom do we pray "May Your will be done." When we do it is almost out of a sense of resignation and hopelessness.


We can pray that His will be done in every situation because God's will for us is for our good.


Today, as you draw bear to God, ask Him to draw near to you as His will for you is carried out.


Enjoy living in His will today.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
