I talked to the Lord about something He has asked me to do. I simply stated that I didn’t want to do it. I heard my inner man, the Holy Spirit, rise and plainly question: “Do you think Jesus wanted to go to the cross? He was sinless? Do you think he really wanted to take every sin? No!” In
Luke 22:42: “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done.”
Nevertheless, not my will, but yours. Those are challenging words when you really do not want to do something that he has called you to do.
However, obedience beckons. I hear my Lord echoing the words of David to Solomon, his son in 1 Chronicles 28:20 (KJV):
“Be strong and of good courage, and DO IT: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, [even] my God, [will be] with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.”
When David told Solomon to do it. It was if he was telling Solomon to, “Make it happen! Deal with it! Get to work, boy!”
I enCOURAGE you to join me and JUST DO IT! I enCOURAGE you to boldly proclaim, “Father not my will but yours!” Whatever He has called you to do, He will empower you to walk through.
JUST DO IT.
