Embracing the Season

John 18

Good morning!

It's hard to believe we're already at the end of John. It's fascinating how each time we revisit this story throughout the Gospels, something new resonates with me.

Today, as I reflect on my own journey with the Lord, I find myself grappling with the question:

Why do I sometimes wish to rush through the difficult seasons or pray them away rather than embrace the lessons they offer?

Maybe instead of take this cup from me Lord I submit to the suffering that will produce fruitfulness and glory to the father?

I love what Jesus modelled today when Peter tried to save him from being arrested:

"Jesus ordered Peter, 'Put your sword away! Do you really think I will avoid the suffering which my Father has assigned to me?'" (John 18:11 TPT)

Like Jesus, I want to fully engage with where the Lord is taking me. I know whether it’s joy I'm experiencing or pain, there is purpose in it. He may be teaching me, shaping my character, revealing purpose or deepening my relationship with Him. Maybe it has nothing to do with me and is more about Him being glorified for the Kingdom?

This morning has brought a profound shift in perspective for me—ultimately, I'm reminded to surrender daily to His will, echoing the words,

'Father, not my will, but Yours be done.'"
