Daily Bible Podcast Day 282 – Nehemiah 1-2, Psalm 133, Luke 22

August 9, 2013 in Podcasts


“‘Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.'” ~Luke 22:42

Jesus knows what’s coming. He’s facing a slow, painful death on a cross, after He’s tortured for hours prior. It’s His choice. He even asks for a different way, but ultimately He submits. Jesus does God’s will no matter what.

I need to make this a regular prayer in my life as a reminder of what I’m supposed to be working toward. “Not my will, but Yours be done.”

Father, as long as I’m on earth, I won’t have Jesus’ faith. Even so, I want to do Your will, not mine, so help me to be obedient as Jesus was. I’ll probably never go to a cross, but I’d like to think that I’d be willing. Increase my faith and obedience.
