Conflict Resolution

June Encouragement 2024



“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.’ " [Matt. 26:39 NLT]


Conflict.


What thoughts, feelings, or images does this evoke when we read it? Many

conflicts are going on around me and in me right now!

Can we all agree that Jesus must have experienced a lot of conflict as He

walked amongst the people of his time? He was preaching the truth of the

Word of God concerning the Kingdom! The desire of Jesus’ heart was to see

their eyes and hearts open up to who He was and bring them back to the

Father.


His words in the Garden of Gethsemane still ring loud and clear as to how

we should handle conflicts:

“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.’ "

His “flesh” didn’t want to suffer, just as ours does not want to suffer, but He

surrendered His desires because He chose to do the will of His Father.

Faced with His conflict, He did the will of His Father, as should we!


Isn’t this what we want?
