how could He?

"He could because He slept in the calm assurance that His Father was in control.

His was a quiet heart.

We see Him move through all the events of His life - when He was reviled, He did not revile in return. When He knew that He would suffer many things and be killed in Jerusalem, He never deviated from His course.

He had set His face like a flint.

He sat at supper with one who would deny Him and another who would betray Him, yet He was able to eat with them, willing even to wash their feet.

Jesus in the unbroken intimacy of His Father's love, kept a quiet heart."

=====

Oh, to have a determination like flint. To follow and trust and rest and love with a heart like His. Oh, keep a quiet heart. Know that the Father's will -will be. No matter what ♥
