Jesus is talking about the Holy Spirit and I love this because we see full surrender and devotion. God sent His one and only Son so we can have eternal life through Him and Jesus sent the Holy Spirit so we will know the worlds sins and of Gods righteousness. Look what Jesus says in John chapter 16 verse 7 "But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, the Advocate won’t come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you." It is amazing what we have been given to understand, yet we struggle because we think we know better or our fleshly desires become what drive us. When we are born again we are new creations, the old is gone. We need to think of our lives as one led by Jesus and forgetting what we think feels good. If we were in prayer and studied His word all the time we would hear the Holy Spirit who is guiding us into all truths. But we think of ways to fit God in and use Him as a brick not the foundation.
Can we say, not my will be done? We can when we are doing what it says in Ephesians chapter 6 verse 11, "Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil." When we leave one part unprotected our feelings get in and so does our will. Then we say; well I was born this way or it feels right. Those are strategies of the devil and will always keep us making excuses of why we (ok) our actions even when His word shows us it is our flesh. WE ARE BORN AGAIN! the excuse of we were born that way is garbage or rubbish. Put on the full armor, pray and ask God for what you need and He will show you what that is. Jesus did only what the Father said, the Holy Spirit only does what Jesus shows Him and we need to do the same by asking, seeking, and knocking. We can't let our minds be our worse enemy, we need to renew them ALL the time. Amen
