What do You want me to do?

“Yet not what I will, but what you will.” Mark 14:36.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Deuteronomy 5-6, Psalm 43, and Mark 14.


Total surrender.

Nothing more.  Nothing less.

God has the right plan for me.  I often think that I know best.  It’s obvious, or at least I think that it is.  BUT God knows ultimately best!

Jesus knew what was coming and He asked for another way.  God knew best: If Jesus didn’t carry my sins to death, I would still have them on my record.  I would be unacceptable to God on Judgment Day.

I must be certain that I am doing what God wants me to do.  The only way that I can get this right is to have a tight, ongoing relationship with Him.

I must give up trying to run my own life.  His Word gives me a foundation for what God would want me doing or not doing.  Sometimes the course I must take is clear from within the framework of His Word.  It’s the uncertain times.  It’s the times in which the obvious is not His Will.

How difficult it is for a mere mortal to live as God wants him to live!

“Father, I need Your help.  I beg You to direct my path.  I beg You to prick my conscience when I am going astray.  I want to be in Your Will all the time.  I cling to You now.  I love You, Lord.”

How will you know His Will?
