Suffering and Surrender

From Mark 8:31-33 / Suffering and Surrender – “Satan” (vs. 33) means – adversary. All it takes to be God’s adversary, is to set our agenda above His. And so I pray today: Heavenly Father, keep your plan and purposes ever before me. Let me live my life so as to be fully invested in your agenda, what you are about in this world. Let me leave my self-willed and self-constructed goals behind. Let me be immersed in your will, surrendering my own completely. If nothing gets done the way I want, let it be, as long as your will is done.

Note too the connection between 33, and 34-38. This is what it means to take up our cross. To abandon our agendas for His.
