Look at the way that Jesus handled His impending mission. Jesus talked to His Father about His calling to die. He spent significant time telling His Father how He felt about what was about to happen. He took His best friends with Him but He didn't allow His friends to dissuade Him due to their inability to be supportive.
The day of His crucifixion, He spent time with His followers and let them know what was going to happen. His death was to happen during Passover. During Passover, a tradition is to sing the Hallel Psalms, chapters 113-118. They are to be sung as a prayer. What is interesting is chapter 118, the last scripture that Jesus and the His disciples sang. Jesus knew what He was going to go thru. Look at some of the key words that Jesus sang:
What can man do to me?
I will look in triumph over my enemies.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.
They surrounded me on every side but in the name of the LORD I cut them off.
The LORD is my strength and my song, He has become my salvation.
I will not die, but live. I will proclaim what the LORD has done.
This is the day the LORD has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.
Give thanks to the LORD for He is good.
His love endures forever.
So, the conclusion... When you know that you are going to face a severe trial, face it like a man. Be like Jesus. Spend time with your LORD and have confidence that you will emerge victorious because HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER.
BE A MAN.
