Hence, when He [Christ] entered into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but instead You have made ready a body for Me [to offer]; In burnt offerings and sin offerings You have taken no delight. Then I said, Behold, here I am, coming to do Your will, O God–[to fulfill] what is written of Me in the volume of the Book. [Ps. 40:6-8.] When He said just before, You have neither desired, nor have You taken delight in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings–all of which are offered according to the Law– He then went on to say, Behold, [here] I am, coming to do Your will. Thus He does away with and annuls the first (former) order [as a means of expiating sin] so that He might inaugurate and establish the second (latter) order. [Ps. 40:6-8.] And in accordance with this will [of God], we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One).” ‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:5-10‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

In order for Jesus Christ to fulfill his call, irrespective of the trials and persecution that befell Him, He made up His mind to do so. His mind was already set for task. Hence even the threat of dead could not stop Him. It was because of the will of God that He came to redeem mankind from the power of Satan.

Therefore, for Jesus to accomplish this assignment, He had to surrender His own will as an act of choice and embrace God’s will through the power of the Holy Spirit.

But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:7-8‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

He, Jesus, never acted as self-appointed, but He was under authority.

This is because I have never spoken on My own authority or of My own accord or as self-appointed, but the Father Who sent Me has Himself given Me orders [concerning] what to say and what to tell. [Deut. 18:18, 19.]” John‬ ‭12:49‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Jesus Christ functioned this way as human being to destroy the work of Satan. And also to teach us as human being that we can also experience total victory over the wiles of Satan as we lay down our will and
embrace God’s will for us.

I will love to call our attention to the fact that we can not overcome the enemy with our human mind. Just as Jesus embraced the mind of God which is the will of God to defeat the enemy we too must surrender our
mind to Christ and embrace the mind of Christ to walk in victory.

This is a decision that only us can make. Remember Christ has already done all He can do and has given us the power and authority over all the power of the enemy. Now is up to us to use what we have.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your word. I embrace Your will for my life as I lay down my will. I bind the power of the God of this world system and I loose the mind of Christ to rule and dominate my every move in Jesus name. Amen
