It Had to Happen

text size A A A

It had to happen. Jesus knew Judas would betray Him. However, the betrayal was one event that led to the arrest, trial, crucifixion, and RESURRECTION of our Lord and Savior, and the world was granted an amazing opportunity - eternal life.

Too often we complain about the evil others have done to us, and we fail to focus on the bigger picture. We must understand that some things must occur in order for a particular blessing to spring forth.

Consider Joseph. Joseph had to be thrown into the pit. His own flesh and blood betrayed him because his brothers were consumed by envy and hate. Yet, they did not know that tossing him into the pit and then selling him into slavery was only positioning him for something greater.

Begin viewing the evil things that people do to you as stepping stones to something better. God is priming and preparing you so you may elevate to a higher altitude. With every attack, say “thank you”. With each act of betrayal, say “thank you”. Don’t become bitter. Don’t seek revenge. Don’t take the situation into your own hands. Sit back and trust that what others intended to work against you, Christ can make it work for you.

Be confident in God's method and know that there is a reason. When we listen to the Lord, then He will align things in our favor. So don’t fear the resistance. The opposition serves a purpose. Let things run their course, and in the end you will see that it was all a part of God’s perfect plan!
