Sandy's Devotional

Sep 25, 2019 • By Sandy Shoshani

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 5:7-10)


“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. (Luke 22:42-44)


The Lord did not pray to escape the will of God but to accept it. Yeshua experienced pain and suffering, yet submitted Himself in obedience. Because of this, we are able to turn to Him for help when we suffer. He knows our grief because He was a man of grief. He cares for each one who struggles and is ALWAYS available to listen. Psalm 116:1-2 says: “I love the Lord because he hears my prayers and answers them. Because he bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I breathe!” And Psalm 27:13-14 says: “I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord.”
