Mark 14:38 (NKJV)
“ Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Watch and pray is what Jesus told the disciples to do. Do we see everything God is trying to show us? So many times God is trying to show us His plan and purpose yet we miss out on His best when we try to do His call on our own.
We are willing so many times to please God and want to serve, yet too many times the temptation is to do it on our terms. We try to short cut the plan; do the plan in our timing, show a lack of preparing, or following the pride of “I” instead of following and doing all we do for the Great I Am. God knows what needs to be done and He wants to show us and grow us in His love.
The need for prayer gives you the answer and comfort in first knowing that God would not ask you to do anything He would not prepare you or equip you for in giving Him the glory. Second, it is all about Him when we do His will and we are to know it is never about us only Him through us.
So pray and watch to see what He has in store for you. Follow through with the call and give thanks to Him for all He did through you. To God be all the praise and the glory!
