Okay Lord Jesus!
You said to me in Mark 10:27 that ” With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
I have left everything to follow you. I am asking you, “Teacher,” I want you to do for me whatever I ask.”
My request is ” Let me sit at your right in your glory.”
Jesus said to me, ” that I don’t know what I am asking”! Can I drink the cup Jesus drank and be baptized with the baptism He was baptized with?
Even then, that is, If I am able to drink the cup and be baptized with the baptism He was baptized with, to sit at Christ right hand is not for Christ to grant.
I have not even been bold enough to stand for truth, justice, fairness as He want me too, so what cup am I really drinking? What cup are you drinking?
The position, status, eminence, …. Is preordained!!!!
These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.” Mark 10:40
What am I getting at here, there are “things” many of us are striving for, and against, that are already set in stone.
Many things have been prepared in advance of us that we cannot change, bend, override, or overrule. Ephesians 2:10
The rulers of this dark age can tinker with it but they cannot change it. We must stay tuned up and turned on by heaven though!
Regardless of human maneuvering, what is ordained is ordained! Ask for mercy where you have erred and grace to stay on The Path!
Whatever you are asking for that is not ordained for you, heaven will never release no matter how many mountains you climb and the many sacrifices you are willing to give! You cannot buy your way out, or pay your way in!!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
