Scripture Reading: Isaiah 53:7
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
Reflections:Oppression and affliction speaks of ill treatment. Naturally, people will resist being oppressed and afflicted. It is however, amazing to read from the prophetic words of Isaiah that Jesus was going to be oppressed and afflicted. It is clear from his statement that although Jesus would have the power to protest, He would decline to do so as a result of his submissiveness to the will of God. This is confirmed in Hebrews 10:7-9. The will of God refers to what God intends that you do. Like the case of Jesus, God’s will for your response to situations may not be what you expect but it will prove to be a blessing in the end. The critical thing in life is to know and remain submissive to the will of God for your life. This is what will usher you into the realm of glory. Remain connected to His will!
Prayer: Oh Lord, Let my actions in life be influenced by your will.
Confession: My actions in life are motivated by the will of God. I will keep connecting to His will.
