If You Are Willing.

This finals season, I’ve just been meditating more and more on Luke 22:42, which reads: “saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” (ESV)  The more I think about it, the more, “if you are willing,” begins popping up and being bolded, italicized, and underlined – sorry, I’ve been working on papers. This short post is just a reminder to me, and all my brothers and sisters out there dealing with finals, or even something else, that Jesus’s will was purely centered on God’s will.  He had a request for the cup to be removed from Him, but ultimately, He acquiesced to the Father’s will.  We can request all the straight A’s we want, and if it brings glory to God, then we may see those results; however, let us continue to remember and reflect on how often we ask God about His will and keep God in the conversation in our daily lives.
