ĶEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 12:27 KJV “Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.”

We continue with our discussions on the walk with Jesus through the gospels. The Lord had been talking to his disciples concerning His impending death, that would bring glory to the Father. His human sentiments immediately went into action. He felt the great burden of the pains and the shame that would be coming on Him. The scripture said, He was troubled in His soul. The flesh of man would always cave in under pressure. If anyone allows the flesh to lead him, he will not please God. Rom 8:7 KJV” Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” The troubles of His soul led Him to ask the father to take away that cup of suffering.

The Lord did not hold to that position, but quickly added that He was alive to fulfill the will of the Father. That was to die for all humanity. The cries of His flesh to succumb and forsake His divine mission was very strong. He did not yield at all to the fears and worries of the flesh. What made Jesus not to yield?

The Lord had a great reverence for the father and placed His will first above all. Matt 26:42 KJV “He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.”  The next reason why he stuck to obeying God, was the glory He will enjoy after the pain Heb 12:2 KJV” Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

The third reason why He overcame was His deep love for all men. John 15:13 KJV” Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” The above were some of the reasons why Jesus decided to accept the pain and shame of dying on the cross.

We are to learn a lot from the master concerning how He subjected His flesh from dictating to Him. Place the will of God above everything, for God is the essence of life, and everything must be done to please Him, for our own good and peace. Every man’s satisfaction, success, peace, and liberation is dependent on him pleasing the Father.

There is always glory from the Father when we overcome the desires to sin.


Thank you, heavenly father, for your ways are always higher than ours. I give no place to my flesh to dictate to me. I learn from the master concerning how He also overcame the demands of His flesh, and so I overcome.


Mat 4:4 KJV” But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

Isaiah 53:11 KJV” He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.”
