THE 14TH OF SEPTEMBER
JESUS TOTALLY FULFILLED HIS FATHER’S WILL
Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things. And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” – John 8:28-29
The Lord warns us about things to come in our lives, but we do not truly hear what He tells us. Because we do not truly hear, then when it happens, we despair instead of trusting Him to accomplish what He already told us He would do. Jesus came to earth and endured the limitations of living in a human body, into a sinful and evil world, to be lifted up on the cross dying in our place and paying for our sins.
The Lord Jesus did nothing out of His Father’s will. Every step of His earthly walk was led by His Father. Jesus knew that His Father was with Him all the time, because He always pleased God. We should want to please God too and know that He is always with us. Only our will and sin can separate us from God. Our Lord would never leave us, but if we want to leave Him, He will not force us to be His against our will.
Heavenly Father, I am so very blessed to know that You are always with me and hold me in the palm of Your hand. Please help me to always please You and never desire to leave You. Lord please help me to pay attention to Your warnings and counsel. Help me to hear You and do what You tell me to do, because You know what is best for me. I thank and praise You Lord. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
