A Daily Devotion for Monday, January 15

Matthew 26:39


Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will."


This verse has always been a bit challenging for me, because I often assume the deity of Jesus would keep him from experiencing the fear and pain that goes along with being human. But clearly, that was not the case. Jesus is experiencing being fully human here, and he lives out what it means to surrender to God's will. Once again, and in the most extreme and poignant manner, Jesus showed us what it means to surrender to God. This is surrender.


Holy Lord, I want to surrender to your will. I will try to stop fighting against things I have no power to change, at the same time turning to you with confidence. Thy will be done. Amen


Becky, transforming
