4/22/14 Daily Devotion

Matthew 28:12-13 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.’

The soldiers knew what really happened. The chief priests knew from the soldiers what really happened. The truth in this case was not what they wanted released. The truth would have altered the power and influence of the chief priest, and this could not be allowed to happen. SO instead of embracing the existence of the Messiah, instead of embracing the truth of scripture as it was revealed through Christ, they chose instead to formulate a lie that would hopefully keep them in the elevated positions of self-righteous glory. So, in essence, they chose themselves over God, they chose themselves over the Messiah. Have you ever done the same? In all honesty, the answer to that question must be a resounding YES, for all have placed themselves before God at one point or another. In the weakness of flesh, we all have given in to personal desires over that of God. What we must do is come to this realization and seek the forgiveness of God before it’s to late.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see clearly where I have fallen short, where I have placed myself before You, and come to the decision to prevent this from continuing.
