Dealing with the stuff that’s dealing with you-4/18/21

Scripture: Matthew 26:36-46

  1. We must deal with the pains of the past. Jesus understands what I am dealing with. He has gone through what I am going through. Everybody goes through some pain. We must deal with the pain that is dealing with us. We cannot ignore it. Be honest and say that your heart is hurting and your soul is heavy. We need the Lord!
  2. We must deal with the faults and failures of family and friends. Jesus took 11 disciples, 8 had to stay, and he took 3 to pray with him. But closer he was to his purpose, the inner circle got smaller. He goes off to pray, but when he comes back, the three (Peter, James, and John) were asleep. The spirit was willing but the flesh was weak and goes and prays again. Jesus makes a decision that he cannot be held up because someone who wanted to didn’t know how to. This doesn’t paralyze Jesus. Your friends may want to help…their spirit is willing, but they are flesh. Flesh can have a willing spirit but also be weak. God will pull you through! Put your faith in God
  3. Surrender to the sovereign will of God. Sometimes the plan and will of God is not what we want. There’s something I don’t want to do that God wants me to do. But nevertheless, not my will but Your will be done.
