What Do We Want From the Lord?

James and John wanted to sit next to Jesus when He arrived in His kingdom. Jesus asked whether they were ready to suffer as He was about to suffer. They said yes. He then said, “You will indeed drink My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with; but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father” (Matthew 20:23).
We have to remember who is in charge. The Father in heaven has the ultimate authority. He will bless us according to the things He has prepared, but we have to be willing to experience what Jesus experienced.
Do you want the Father to bless you beyond imagination? If so, are you ready for whatever comes your way in life?
