Easter Sunday - Healer - The Miracles of Jesus - Week Six
The Illusion of CONTROL: The cognitive bias that leads us to believe we have CONTROL over OUTCOMES when in reality, we don’t.
He told them, “My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour? Matthew 26:38–40 (NLT)
Then Jesus left them a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.”
Matthew 26:42 (NLT)
So he went to pray a third time, saying the same things again. Matthew 26:44 (NLT)
WE CAN’T ALWAYS CONTROL,
BUT WE CAN ALWAYS SURRENDER.
FOLLOWING GOD’S WILL IS RARELY EASY,
BUT IT’S ALWAYS GOOD!
TRUE FAITH BEGINS BETWEEN THE IF AND THE YET.
