Sometimes it can be so difficult to deny our flesh to do The Lord’s will. But that isn’t an excuse not to do it.
Jesus’ soul was troubled when he thought of the pain and suffering he would endure as he was beaten, and crucified. In His flesh he wanted no part of it. But in his spirit he knew that it was what his Father wanted from him.
Jesus knew that there was purpose in being the perfect sacrifice. And that purpose was why He came to earth.
There is purpose in the work that The Lord gives us. It isn’t just a time filler. It’s not just for our own benefit. His will being accomplished in our lives brings glory to God and draws others to Him.
So before you brush off the dealing of the Holy Spirit remember that glorifying God is why you are here. It’s your purpose too.
Allow the Father’s will to be the final say in your life.
Scripture taken from: John 12:26-28
