Take this Cup…

DAILY VERSE

And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”

Matthew 26:39


DEVOTION

We’ve all been there. Faced with seemingly insurmountable circumstances, we call out to God for an end or at least a shortcut around them. Many people have created their own shortcuts around God’s plans that sometimes include going through the fire of trials. They’re meant to strengthen our faith and increase our reliance on God. So those who bypass this opportunity miss out on something, diverting from God’s path. Though it may be like looking into the mouth of a lion, God will show you amazing things as you follow His plan and grow in your faith!
