Trust & Pancake Breakfast Bake

Matthew 26:39 (easy)

Jesus went a short way beyond them. He went down with his face on the ground. He prayed, ‘Father, if it is possible, please save me from this time of great pain. But Father, I do not ask you to do what I want. Do what you want for me.’

Read

When I read the scripture above, it immediately makes me think of a verse in the book of Psalms; Psalm 33:4. “The word of the Lord is correct, and everything he does is trustworthy (GW).” Other versions of this verse read, “The Lord always does what is right and fair.”

The scripture above, for me, is probably the best example of this truth in the entire Bible. In all of His humanness, Jesus was afraid. He didn’t want to die. But as God, He did it anyway, because it was right thing to do. Because He made a promise to save us for eternity.

When I’m struggling with trusting God, in big and small things, I often think back to this verse – to this story in the Bible. I think about how there doesn’t seem to be a harder circumstance to make the right choice, yet Jesus does. Which brings me to the very simple question I often ask myself: Is there anything He can’t be trusted with?

Jesus didn’t suffer so that we would just trust Him with our forevers, but also with our todays and tomorrows. He’s always here, doing what’s right. This scripture does an amazing job of reminding us of that.

Write

What do you struggle to trust the Lord with? Does reading through and digesting this truth today change your perspective?

Pray

For a heart that trusts the Lord with everything.
