Read Luke 22:37-42
42 "Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine." - Luke 22:42 NLT
Hello family, What if the cup did pass? What if our heavenly father said “ok you don't have to do this.” For one, i would not be here. Every person ever born wound be doomed with no chance of hope. But we know that the cup did not pass and Chris token our place and made the ultimate sacrifice. for us.
One thing that my pastor mentioned in his message on Sunday was that there are certain things we must endure in order for us to become what God destined us to be. How can we show mercy if we have not be given mercy. How can we be wise if we haven't made a few mistakes. When solomon asked for wisdom I'm sure God did not just drop it in his lap. Im sure there were some tough decisions to be made. I bet he made some mistakes but leaned from them.
This is also not just about you. Its about the lives you will affect. The people watch silently in the background seeing you go through the mess. So if you push away the situation that God designed to strengthen you to be a blessing to others, how will you make an impact?
Family, God knows all that we are going to do in this life. He sees all the choices (good and bad) that we will make. So he tweaks the bad ones so that they will benefit us. But if we run from the storm, if we run from pain we wont grow. we wont Get the benefit of learning from the pain.
Much Love & God Bless
