God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
”Now my soul is troubled and what shall I say? ‘Father save me from this h our’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. Father glorify Your Name.“ John 12:27-28a (NKJV)
Here Jesus speaks to God from His humanity. His soul is troubled. He knows what lays ahead for Him, yet He fears the separation from His Father that He has to endure.
Jesus Christ knew God had led Him to this point in His ministry. He asks the question if he should ask God to save Him from that hour.
However, Jesus realized and stated that what He was about to go through was God’s plan and purpose.
Our God has plans and purposes for each of us. In researching God’s purpose for our lives, we begin to see His plan unfold for each of us.
1. Keep in touch with God through prayer.
2. Study His Word (Read the Bible)
3. Apply what you read to our hearts.
4. Reach out to ones who are searching.
