“When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.” (Luke 9 - 51)
Jesus knew it was likely that he would be arrested. He also suspected that he might even die. Can you imagine the storm of emotions that must have been whirling around in Jesus’s mind and heart? Yet he decided to make the journey to Jerusalem! Throughout the Gospels we see evidence of Jesus’s faith and trust in God. Today’s verse is an example of the depth of trust Jesus had in God. Do we have such faith? I hope so. We have to nurture our faith and trust in God each and every day! This creates a foundation and a relationship with God that will support and sustain us whenever we are in need. Today and every day let’s ask Jesus to deepen our trust and faith in him!
