Surrender All

November 4, 2015

Mark 14:36

And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.”

Jesus is praying to God, His Father, our heavenly Father right before being betrayed and taken captive, leading up to the cross.

The burden Jesus was carrying was nearly unbearable for Him in those moments of fleshly weakness. There is so much here, but I want to share two very important truths I have learned from this verse.

1. There is complete peace when we surrender to God.

  • In verse 34 it says “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful even to death…” Not sure about you but I have never been that sorrowful, but it sounds pretty heavy.
  • Then look in verse 42, very shortly after Jesus tells His disciples; “Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.”
  • That is a radical turnaround. Remember brothers, all things are possible WITH God.

2. When we pray, it is okay to pray for what we want, but we have to know how to surrender to God’s Will.

  • This is the key that unlocks the door. Without this act of surrender in our hearts, we will be unable to see God move in our prayers. Even if at times it seems our prayers may have been answered, the most powerful prayer is a prayer unrestricted my selfish desires.

These lyrics were in a song I just so happened to be listening to this morning, by Kristian Stanfill titled My Reward:

‘You are my Reward,

All I’m living for,

I surrender all my life to You.’

Men, I pray this will be the song of your heart.

 

Blessings
