Example of a Servant - He was submissive



He went a little farther and fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him. 
He said, Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.” Mark 14.35,36
Many are those who want to do the work of God, but according to their will. It’s not them who submit to the will of God, but God has to submit his desires and whims.
Many perform many prayers only asking and demanding, “I want this and this only, I want this responsibility, I want to do the work in such country, I want my husband to take care of such church, and I want it because I want to!”
See that you did not read “I want to do His will and let it be fulfilled in my life.”
The Lord Jesus would go through distressing and terrible moments. Moreover, by taking the sins of mankind He would be separated from the Father and that would be the worst time. He asked that if it was possible God did not allow him to pass through that moment, but then He said, Yet not what I will, but what You will.”
And here's the big difference between the servant of God and the one who serves herself.
Consider whether your behavior has been of a true servant of God and what has been your reaction when:
- You are contradicted in the work of God
- Things do not go exactly as you want
- You want one thing and God determines another completely different
- You prayed for a purpose and did not happen, because God's will for your life was not that
- You're counting on something and doesn’t happen.
Do you have faith to do the same prayer that Jesus did? Or you are not willing to give up your will? Think well, for what God wants or plans is sometimes quite different from what you might think or want!
Are you willing to submit?

This is what God,has shown me in this campaign. God let your will be done in my life not my will. Keeping obeying even when you don't understand. God is Justice for sure and I trust that.

it is important to always submit for when you submit you are doing exactly as Jesus did he was submissive to God to the point of death
