Daily Gospel Devotional 2013: It’s about time

Matthew 26:1-2…

Once again, Jesus is clarifying what is about to happen. He had been speaking of His return, and warning about being ready and avoiding judgment. Now He was making sure that they were informed about His departure into death and resurrection back to life. It was just a little while till the next part of the grand plan would unfold. Let’s notice three things about this.

It was not an accident. Jesus had told them before that this is what was coming (Matthew 16:21, 17:22, 20:18-19). He knew about timing.

It was not to be avoided. Jesus was to be delivered up, to pay for our sins, so that He might be raised up, for our salvation (Romans 4:25). He knew about testing.

It was a divine appointment. Jesus was playing right into the religious leaders’ scheme, but it was all in accord with God’s schedule (Acts 4:27-28). He knew about trusting.

When your timing, testing and trusting seem all out of sorts, remember, God has it all sorted out. The time has come for you to realize that God has a perfect plan, even when you seem to be messing it all up. Your life is not an accident. Your destiny is not something to be avoided. It is a divine appointment for you to travel on the way to your destination.
