David Jeremiah Daily Devotional 9 July 2022 MESSAGE
The one hour our Lord spent praying in the Garden of Gethsemane leaves us speechless. We’ll never fully enter into His anguish or understand His struggle. Luke says, “Being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground” (Luke 22:44). The next day, His physical blood would fall to the ground, but on this night it was His emotional blood, as it were.
We can learn four lessons from this passage: (1) It’s all right to long for a certain outcome. Everyone has problems, and we long for the desired outcome with all our hearts. (2) It’s all right to pray for a certain outcome. (3) It’s all right to pray repeatedly and earnestly for a certain outcome. (4) But it’s always best to trust the Lord for His ordained outcome.
That takes faith, but faith is the victory (1 John 5:4). Take your burden to the Lord, let Him know your needs, and then trust Him for what is best.
Trust perfected is prayer perfected.
