Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

Jesus had a choice. He could do the will of God and sacrifice Himself for mankind or not suffer or be separated from the Father. Praise God He chose to do the will of God for our benefit.

There’s a lesson in this for us. Although it was uncomfortable, Jesus put His feelings aside to do the will of God. Everything God calls us to do may not be easy or comfortable, but as we put our feelings aside and choose His will above our own, we’re putting God first.

Since Jesus put God first in His sacrifice for us, God awarded Him with the greatest reward ever. God made His name higher than any other name. If we would push past our discomfort to do the will of God, there’s a reward in it for us. It may be a breakthrough, wisdom, or favor, but God promises us a blessing for our obedience.

Do the will of God. We may be tired, it may be uncomfortable, and it may be intimidating, but choose to do the will of God over the will of self.
