Scripture Reading: Isa 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.
Reflection: Oppression and affliction speaks of bad treatment. Naturally, people will resist being oppressed and afflicted. It is however amazing to read from the prophetic words of Isaiah that even though Jesus was going to be oppressed and afflicted, He was not going to protest against the process. What this implies is that although Jesus would have the power to protest, He would decline to do so. This was going to be as a result of His knowledge of the will of God (Hebrews 10:7-9). The will of God refers to what God intends that you do. Like the case of Jesus, it may not be pleasant but 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. Find out what His will is for your life and stick to it!
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.
