What if God told you to stay at a job that you detest so that you can minister the Gospel to your co-workers? Would you put God’s agenda above your own? What if God told you to stay in a rocky marriage in the hopes that your spouse sees the love of Christ coming through you? Would you stay or would you put your personal feelings above the plan of God?

There will be times where God keeps us in places that we really don’t prefer so that His will can be accomplished. During those times, we need to push past our emotions, ask God for strength to endure, and be glad that God’s will is being accomplished.

Jesus, our example, had to get past His emotions and accomplish God’s will by sacrificing Himself on the cross for us.

Living this Christian life is not always going to be fun where everything goes the way we want it to all the time. But, we can be sure that everything will work out for our good (Rom. 8:28).

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