DEVOTIONS – Mon. April 8, 2019

John 13:31 (NLT)

As soon as Judas left the room, Jesus said, “The time has come for the Son of Man to enter into His glory”…

The departure of Judas was a relief to Jesus because as long as Judas was there in the room Jesus could not talk freely about the important topics on His mind. “Judas had no understanding of His motives and mission. The other disciples were equally ignorant of Jesus’ real purpose, as their questions later showed, but the barrier between Judas and Jesus was unbelief. While all of Jesus’ followers showed some trace of love for Him and some interest in His teachings, as far as the Scriptures indicate, Judas exhibited neither.” So when Judas left the atmosphere changed and Jesus was able to share His heart and prepare His disciples for the approaching catastrophe. God, who knows the path just around the corner, prepares us if we will listen. We may not understand, but when life becomes clouded with unexpected trials we can turn to our journals and see just how He has given us words to strengthen, sustain, and equip us for the rough waters ahead. Maintain your daily rhythm of prayer and meditation on God’s Word. He will see you through.
