Saturday, February 9th: Exodus 28:1-43; Matthew 25:31-26:13; Psalm 31:9-18; Proverbs 8:12-13 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Exodus 29:1-30:10, Matthew 26:14-46, Psalm 31:19-24, Proverbs 8:14-26

Matthew 26:39 He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, "My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me.  Yet I want your will to be done, not mine."

Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.

That must be one of the hardest prayers we will ever pray.  I'm sure it was for Jesus, too!  He knew the awful road of torture and death He was about to go down, and He begged God to find another way.  But this was the way.  And ultimately, Jesus wanted to fulfill God's purpose and plan more than anything else.

We, too, need to be willing to surrender what we want, to what God wants.

The prayer in my devotional ends with this line....
Help me to truly believe that they joy of surrendering to your will - whatever it may be - will be worth whatever it may cost.

May that be our prayer today.
