His Will Alone

Read: Micah 7:7

Even in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night of betrayal, Christ had plenty of time and opportunity to flee. But He would not flee. Instead, He knelt to pray in that garden under the leaves of the olive trees. And in His prayer that night, Jesus gave us, for all time, the perfect pattern for the prayer of relinquishment: “Not what I want, but what You want.” Jesus deliberately set Himself to make His will and God’s will the same.
