“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” - Galatians 2:20 NKJV
Only a few days before Jesus hung on the cross, He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and had people crying out “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He Who comes in the name of the Lord!' Hosanna in the highest!" Then, only a few days later He stood before Pilate hearing people scream out, “Crucify Him!” Finally, the prayer He prayed as He hung on the cross was, “Into your hands I commit my Spirit.”
I don’t think this was just a prayer Jesus prayed before He died. He had it pretty tough in the last days before His crucifixion, but I think Jesus was able to pray that prayer because He knew that God had a plan and He was saying, “Father with all that's going on, with all is about to happen, I still trust You with my life.
I wonder how easily we find it to trust God. When everything around us seems to fail, when people let us down, when things seem to not be working, never give up. God is still there for you. Stand your ground and continue to pray like Jesus, “Father, no matter what I see before me, I’m trusting you to lead me today. Into your hands I commit my Spirit.”
“I declare that faith is the foundation for my life. It is no longer all about me; it is about Christ alive in me. The life I live, I live by faith in Jesus Christ who loved me and gave Himself for me…”
