John 5:19 (NIV): “Jesus gave them this answer: ‘Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by Himself; He can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.'”
Isn’t it encouraging knowing that Jesus would never expect us to do anything He wouldn’t do Himself? Jesus was perfectly obedient to the will of His Father, and He openly demonstrated His obedience in everything He did and said. Here’s the nugget of truth that will revolutionise our walk of obedience to Him… Jesus made it abundantly clear that He did nothing of His own accord, but precisely followed His Father’s every move. He remained perfectly in sync with what He heard and saw His Father say and do, and He relied on His strength and wisdom to do it! When we choose to fix our full attention on what the Holy Spirit is teaching and guiding us to do, and rely on His strength and wisdom to do it, we will find ourselves being perfectly in sync with His will and purpose. Fix your eyes on the Lord, follow His every move – and you will fulfil His perfect plan for your life.
