2022/4/13 “Not My Will, But Yours, Be Done”

Ron Sawka Ministries

April 13, 2022; Nissan 12, 5782

Passover/Resurrection Weekend

“He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, ‘O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will’” (Matt. 26:39).

“‘Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done’” (Luke 22:42).

“Not My Will, But Yours, Be Done”

It’s really important to keep our eyes on the Lord, especially this Passover. Every Passover/Resurrection Sunday is important, but there’s been something special about the last few. Some important processes were put into motion during 2020’s Passover. In fact, the Lord began preparing us, His ekklesia, by teaching us to wear the crown in all situations. To not just worship as “priests,” but to now rule with Him as “kings.” To be confident and proud of who we are in Him. In a sense, we have been coronated. However all of that was preparation for now—this year.

It seems this Passover (April 16) is so important. God wants us to enter something beyond what we’ve known or ever experienced.

Passover/Resurrection Sunday is always a time of deliverance and leaving the old behind. It’s a time of crossing over, and this can only be done by the power of God. He parted the Red Sea and the Jordan River. Likewise, only the Lord can open the way for us to cross into the new this year.

The new, of course, is the great, great end time harvest. There will be such powerful anointing poured on God’s people for signs and wonders that comes from carrying His presence wherever we go.

But there is a requirement—there is a cost. Jesus already showed us what and how. It’s why we have Resurrection Sunday. He gave his life. He said, “Not my will, but Yours, be done” (Luke 22:42).

He gave the ultimate sacrifice—His life so that we can have eternal life.

As we approach Passover/Resurrection Sunday, we must make sure we’re totally submitted to Him. We present ourselves to Him as a “living sacrifice” (Rom. 12:1). Let’s be sure we are totally given to Him.

But don’t stop at the “sacrifice.” Great breakthrough, deliverance, blessing, and miracles are waiting for each one of us.

So please keep your eyes on Him this week. Go through Passover and Resurrection Sunday with mindfulness, but also with great rejoicing and expectation.

Thanks for praying,

Ron and Teddy
