"[Jesus] went away a second time and prayed, "My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done."
Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy will be done” (Matthew 6:10). God’s will for His children is that they know Christ, enduring (even with joy) the suffering that will come with it. Paul says in Romans 8:18 “…that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” That’s the secret. It’s Paul’s “long view.” We are citizens of a better country – a heavenly one (Hebrews 11:16). Our hope is in Jesus and in the new earth He is preparing for us. Our joy is in Christ, not in the fickle circumstances of this world.
Philippians 1:29; Hebrews 11
GOD'S WILL FOR YOU IN JESUS IS THAT YOU BE JOYFUL ALWAYS, PRAY CONTINUALLY, AND GIVE THANKS FOR EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE. (SEE 1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18)
