Not My Will, But What You Will

Jesus said in Mark 14:36 "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will." This is the night that Jesus was betrayed and He was taken away to be tortured and crucified. Jesus knew this day was coming, yet He came willingly. God the Father did not force Him to come, Jesus came willingly. The Father gave His only Son, and Jesus chose to come and fulfill the Father's will. He knew what He was going to face. He knew the extreme torture that He would have to endure, and then be nailed to a cross; all so we could have a choice. You see, love makes a choice, and that choice was us. That night in the garden, Jesus felt the weight and the pressure of what was coming. Remember, He was in the flesh and this is why He prayed 'Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.' First off, He said 'Abba.' It's Greek for 'Father', and the closest word we have in English is 'Daddy.' Can you feel the heart of the Lord? I will never be able to put into words the anguish that was in His heart. One of the reasons He was crying out is because, for the very first time, Jesus was going to be separated from His Father. Just for a moment, but He was separated. Why do you think He cried out on the cross 'My God, My God; why hast thou forsaken Me?' (Mark 15:34). Jesus Christ took on every sin that had been and that would ever be committed. By taking on the sin, He was separated from His Father, and that had never happened before. Do we face things that make us think that the Lord is not there? Do we feel like we have been forsaken? God is not sitting in heaven, and seeing just how miserable He can make you! Hebrews 13:5 (AMPC), the Word says 'for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!].' Do you feel that what the Lord has assigned you to do is impossible? God will lead you right on through it. Jesus endured the most heinous and torturous acts a human body could endure. He released His will, and fulfilled the Father's will. Release your will, and let's allow the Father's will to be done.
