We all really do want Father to have his way, as we hope that his way will take the way that is least trying for us. There has been no one of the order of “the members of the Body of Christ” who has committed more purpose to making sure that Father has his way done on earth than the Head of the members of the Body of Christ. Jesus was quite clear when he spoke on where he stood when it came to whose Will would have its way: John 6:38, “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” Now that sounds pretty clear to me as to whose Will would have its way; however, I wouldn’t go as far to say that Jesus’ Will would not be done since the Will and the Word are the same. Jesus is making the point of who is chairing this operation, the Father: this is his great operation found in John 3:16, Jesus is letting us know. Now, there were a couple times noted in the Bible when Jesus did show some anxiousness, but it would have no power over Jesus. We were finally put in a position to have some empathy for Jesus for a rare change since we can understand the effects of being anxious having experienced it over and over again. There were a few things that came up to even push Jesus close to being anxious: one, his soul had him exceeding sorrowful, even unto death, can we pass this cup; and another one when Jesus was on the cross asking the Father why has he forsaken him. You always know when anxiousness has entered to change the man, for once one becomes anxious, it is hard to sit still with the current plan at hand. You and I feel like we could ask that question on many occasions. lol. And keep in mind that being anxious has nothing to do with the speed of time, but everything to do with your internal gauge: your nerves, your expectations, your confidence, your hope, and whatever else of yours that can put you on edge. Jesus was as cool as a cucumber with all of the crazy stuff always going on all around him; so it took a certain level of Father having his way to take Jesus to the edge. Anxious For Father To Have His Way.
We would as a whole be so far advanced, not just as members in the body of Christ; but also as productive members of society if we could be more like Jesus when it comes to putting anxiousness to rest. It has a job to do when it comes a knocking on our door: it comes to move us off our current spot just enough to get us off the plan for Father to have his way. There was no way that Jesus was going to not drink his cup because he was sent to earth to let death be. The soul of the body in which Jesus occupied to come into the earth from heaven was sorrowful unto death because it had no chance. We normally would have to process replacing our will with the Will of God so that we can do what he wants done his way. However, since the Word was made Jesus, the moment Jesus it that body, the regular will of the human soul was completely under Word control. That anxious soul caused the flesh to show sweat like drops of blood because the Word made flesh could not be changed: Jesus was going to die. Now go back to spiritual basics, when the Word is sent forth it is not sent forth to inform, but it is sent forth to preform. When God said let it be light, the Word had already been briefed on what to do, and not sent to inform you and me. Man was not even made yet until the six day. The Word with a life of it own, went to perform the thing that God said to let be; and not to inform because there was no one there to perform. When God sent Jesus to die on the cross, he came to die to show the truth of God. The soul of his flesh body had no chance to change the plan to die. Jesus’ flesh made from the Word came to let death be; and no matter how much anxiousness, sorrowfulness, or drops of blood like sweat there would be, when it is all said and done there will be death on the cross. If we do not let ourselves become anxious, there is no hope for the plan to let the Father have his way can be changed. We need to trust in the Word, and know that it came to perform, and just to inform. If we would ride that Word to full faith, we will see it be what God said to let it be. Every commandment or word of faith is not always as clear as we need it to be; however, we need to be clear on one thing, and that is to let the Word be it. Things are not going slow in the faith operation, but things are happening decently and in order. We can do whatever God wants us to do as fast as he wants us to do them decently and in order. There are too many avenues that we control in which God can do things whenever he needs to do in order to move us forward if that is his desire; however, it is never about the speed of time with God, but having time done with the right speed. We got this with God, if we will not give up on the Word, and give it time to finish at the right speed. Jesus was the Word made flesh, so he could not change any way. You and I need to follow suit, and not let anxiousness push us into changing the Word: let it be. Anxious For Father To Have His Way.
