John 18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
Jesus tells Peter to put up his sword. Jesus will not try to escape the Father’s will. He simply submits to what He knows that God wants.
I read this and think of how many times I want to escape God’s will. I want an easier road. I want God to make things happen that please me more. I seem to always look for the easier road.
I read this verse this morning and want to say to the Lord that I want to serve Him like He would have me to do. I want Him to be Lord. I want to honor Him. I want to do whatever He would have me do.
I surrender all! I know that I do this and then it seems in minutes I am back to wanting to run my own life but to the best of my ability I want God to lead me.
