Prayer (5)

Prayer (5)

“And he went a little further.” Mt 26:39

Jesus left the crowd. He left the twelve disciples. In Gethsemane He even left the three who were closest to Him, went “a little further” and fell on His face and prayed, ”Not as I will, but as thou wilt.” It was here, face-to-face with His Father, that He found strength to embrace the will of God for His life. Today God is saying to you, “The strength to handle this crisis and the wisdom to know what to do will be yours if you’ll just go a little further, stay in My presence a little longer, and dig a little deeper in My Word. If only you knew how close you are to the answer!” Jesus was only a few hours away from the cross, a few days away from the resurrection, and on the threshold of launching the church. Are you in Gethsemane? Sometimes surrendering your will to God is hard, isn’t it? Look at Jesus. Before heaven accepted the sacrifice of a broken body, it demanded the sacrifice of a broken will. Have you surrendered to God? Why do we trust others so easily while God longs for us to trust Him? You go to a doctor whose name you can’t pronounce, get a prescription you can’t read, take it to a pharmacist you don’t know, get medicine you don’t understand, and take it with confidence. Why is it so much easier to have confidence in these “unknowns” than in God, Who is faithful in every way? The answer lies in where you place your trust. Trust comes from knowing someone intimately, listening to them, and spending time with them. It doesn’t happen overnight; it takes time.
