Power in death

Luke 22:42

Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

As humans it is only natural to be conscious  of our environment, to be expectant of pains, frustration, depression or even death in certain situations. However, no matter the amount of pains afflicted to your mortal body by these life issues, they are not permitted to harm the real you (your spirit).

There is a real you greater than all life issues

Jesus being God discovered the place of the spirit and the will of God over all situations. He was to go through a painful death, He understood in complete details the nature of the pain He was to pass through, but he said ” Nevertheless not my will, but thine be done”.  As a human, his will would have been to avoid the pain, but as God His will was to go through that pain for the salvation of mankind. The moment he declared, “not my will but your will” His own will died and he received Power.

Jesus’s will died and he received power

Dear friends, our human will is always a limitation to experiencing the power of God. The moment your will dies, you will begin to function in Power. Because of Jesus giving up His will, the bible says He was given a name above all name (a name nothing can stand against).

For this same reason, the Lord taught us to pray thus: “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth”. (Mathew 6:10)

When you pray about a situation and are able to give up your will about that issue, you unleash the power of God over that problem


Lord may my will be lost in yours so i can experience your divine power in all areas of my life. Amen

You receive power when your will dies and you accept the will of God in your life
