In God's Hands

Mark 14.1-2, 10-11
It was now two days before the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to arrest him by stealth and kill him, for they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar from the people.” Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. And when they heard it, they were glad and promised to give him money. And he sought an opportunity to betray him.
Most Jews in Jerusalem were preparing to observe Passover, a time of solemn remembrance but also a time for families to celebrate. But some of the religious leaders had more important things to accomplish. Jesus had disrupted their security, revealed their sham, and opposed their authority. Now they would put Him away. Through an act of betrayal, Judas, one of Jesus’ own disciples, solved the chief priests’ problem by offering to lead them to Jesus. But how do you “conveniently” betray the Son of God? Is it not a costly endeavor in every way?

What we need to remember is that the world is controlled by our all-wise God, not puny politicians and faithless disciples. God would turn the religious leaders’ murder plot and Judas’ betrayal into the greatest blessing that mankind would ever know. When grief or disaster seem to be dominating, remember that your life is in God’s hands and remember what Jesus did for you.
