Thy Will Be Done
Tuesday, November 19, 2019
Spiritually, we live in a very intense hour. We must watch and pray. In Jesus' Gethsemane hour, he even cried out saying, "My soul (mind, will, emotions) is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me" (Matthew 26:38).
The Scripture that jolts me awake at times and sobers me is "Who [Jesus] in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears...though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things he suffered (Hebrews 5:7-8).
It bears repeating, "with strong crying and tears." He walked in obedience to the rhema Word of God even though He suffered because of it.
Paul reminds Timothy, "Be thou a partaker of the afflictions of the gospel... Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good [valuable] soldier of Jesus Christ....but watch thou in all things, endure afflictions..." (2 Timothy 1:8; 2:3; 4:5).
"Yea, and all that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution" (2 Timothy 3:12).
Remember, "we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22).
Let's continue to pray for one another: Colossians 1:9-14. "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth" (Luke 11:2).
