Thank you Lord for reducing the pain that I have been feeling in the past months. I have been praying for healing, perhaps this is it? I haven’t gone to the doctor in the past days and I am yet to know what happens. I trust the Lord has indeed granted my prayers!
Reflecting on today’s events being that it’s Holy Wednesday — this was the time that Judas decided to betray his friend, his leader, his teacher, his healer, the Messiah. Inasmuch as I want to understand how one could do that, I also know that it’s written, predetermined, and prophesied! (Ref: Matthew 26:14-16 Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
Then one of the twelve disciples—the one named Judas Iscariot—went to the chief priests and asked, “What will you give me if I betray Jesus to you?” They counted out thirty silver coins and gave them to him. From then on Judas was looking for a good chance to hand Jesus over to them.)
I just find it really hard to accept how inhuman we homo sapiens can get. I can’t believe that someone who’s done nothing but goodness can still be persecuted and crucified! How did we ever let that happen… Thank God because He is a good God. Thank God because He is a forgiving God since He still allowed for us to gain redemption. (Ephesians 1:7 “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.”)
I am in tears imagining the sufferings of Jesus Christ but then, it’s meant to happen —someone ought to betray and deny Him. He had to die.
In these days where microchips are implanted on people — can we guarantee to not ever deny Him whatever it takes?
