When God's Will Is Not Your Will

Luke 22 verse 42 "Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done."
As a Christian, we are to seek God's will for our life, and for our situations. If we truly trust and have faith in God, He will do what is best, because His plans for us are right. I am sure that Jesus, as a man, did not want to face the cross, but He knew that it was the Father's plan. Other people, including some of His closest friends, family, and disciples, did not understand this simple fact...Jesus came to do the will of the Father.
Many times, the Lord places us in situations that we as human beings, do not want, do not desire, do not understand. Yet, we need to be submissive to the Father's will. Are you in a job where you know the Lord wants you, yet you are seeking a change? Are you living in an area where the Lord placed you, yet you are seeking to move? Are there some obnoxious people in your life, and you can't get rid of them? I could go on and on with the questions, and I am sure your answers would be yes. Just relax, give it to the Lord, and He will give you grace under pressure to endure until His divine purposes are accomplished.
Joseph was sold into slavery by his own kinfolk, yet he came to realize that God had placed him there for a time, a season, and a purpose. That story in the book of Genesis is one full of injustices, disappointments, heartache, and grief. In the end, however, it is a story of great victory and triumph...all because it was God's will.
Sometimes people you love and care for leave you, and are no longer a part of your life. God placed them there for a season and a reason. I have seen many people come and go in my lifetime, yet one always remains. He is my best friend, Jesus. I know I can trust Him in all things, even when I don't understand. After all, He was willing to follow the Father's will and give His life for me.
We should all be able to pray, "Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy will be done as in heaven, so in earth".
