And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.” (Mark 14:36 NKJV)
The Almighty God is our Father in heaven. The bond between Him and us is Agape love. It is a three-fold bond that cannot be broken, making us intimately close to Him as described by the title “Abba”. We are one with Father in Spirit. He dwells in us and we in Him. There is never a time when He is not with us. He is always present in our lives. Even in times of trials, He is always there to help and guide us. Trials come in measured amount as symbolized by the cup of wine. Wine tastes sweet and sour. We should be glad to know that trials will come to pass. Even if the cup is filled to the brim and overflowing, still it will be emptied in time. Sweetness is the aftertaste of wine. Victory is sweet and gladdens the heart. God wants us to go through trials to prepare us for the next sweet blessings that come after them. Including the fact that we are being made stronger and mature after each batch of tests that came our way. Perfection is achieved after we have been tried so many times. Christ suffered and so will we. If we participate in the sufferings of the lamb, we become His image and will partake in His glory in heaven. Since He is our Father, He gives us trials that we can take and not more than we can endure. So take that cup of sorrows. Accept what you go through and believe that it will come to pass. Believe also that God is with you. In the end, enjoy victory over your problems, sufferings, and hardships. Abba, Father, not my will but your will.
