 RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL

SATURDAY, 14TH JANUARY.

THEME: SUBMIT TO HIS WILL.

OPENING
SCRIPTURE
: And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and
kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove
this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done (Luke
22:41-42).

In the opening scripture, we observe how the Lord
Jesus agonized earnestly in prayer to the Father. The forty-fourth verse
of Luke chapter twenty-two actually says, “And being in an agony he
prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood
falling down to the ground.” It was a moment of decision for Jesus. In
His prayer, He said, “…Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup
from me….”

He was referring to His imminent spiritual death,
and the fact that, by that death, the Father would turn His back on Him,
because the sins of the world would be laid on Him. This was the cause
of His indescribable anguish. He knew what was ahead at the cross, a
separation from His Father. However, from the beginning, He had
prophetically declared, “…Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is
written of me,) to do thy will, O God” (Hebrews 10:7).

He knew
what the Father’s will was, and He came to fulfil it, as clearly spelt
out in the Word. So, irrespective of the terrible experience, the
painful separation from the Father, which He loathed, He submitted
Himself to the Father’s will. He was the expression and fulfilment of
the will of the Father. This is what your life must be about: the
fulfilment of the will of the Father.

If you ever find yourself
at the crossroads of life, choose the Father’s will. You might ask,
“What if I don’t know His will concerning the issue?” That’s one of the
reasons you have the Holy Spirit; ask Him, and He’ll reveal it to your
spirit. In addition, as you study the Word and meditate, the will of God
is unveiled to your spirit. God’s Word is His will expressed; His
wisdom is in His Word. Therefore, when you act on the Word, you’re
living out the will of God.

Don’t try to look for a “new” will of
God; stay in the Word! In the moment of physical weakness and pain,
hold on to the Word, and you’ll receive strength. The Bible says
concerning Jesus in His moment of anguish: “And there appeared an angel
unto him from heaven, strengthening him” (Luke 22:43). Who was that
angel? The Holy Ghost! When you come to a crisis moment, pray earnestly,
affirming the Word, and you’d receive strength to do the will of the
Father.

PRAYER
Dear Father, thank you for strengthening me by
your Spirit to do your will always. You’re the one working in me, both
to will and to do your good pleasure. My life is a daily expression of
your will, and I fulfil your purpose and destiny for me with glory and
joy, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
