Setting Your Face
Isaiah shows Messiah setting his face like flint (Isa.50:7) as He heads toward Jerusalem. He could not be dissuaded from His purpose. “Steadfastly set His face…”(Lk.9:51) means “courage, firmness, resolution”. There are goals yet to reach, purpose yet to fulfill and mature sons of God will accomplish what they are purposed for and will not shrink back or change their minds just because circumstances threaten.
