In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus wrestled with the knowledge that He would die on the cross bearing the weight of our sin and being spiritually separated from the Father.
Jesus got alone before the Father and cried out. When He left that garden, He walked out with a calm resolve. Jesus would still drink the cup of suffering and separation but He knew that at the end He would triumph. That’s why He could face the cross, the beatings and the humiliation. He had an assurance of victory.
In our times of battle, we must get alone before the Savior and cry out to Him. The more we do this, the more we come to know God’s heart and His love for us. Then as difficult decisions come, we can come out better because of our relationship with the Father. We will be better prepared to discern His will. We too can gained that assurance of victory.
