WHEN YOU ARE BETRAYED
I was betrayed and how deeply I understand the pain. I knew ahead of time that I would be betrayed and I understood whose heart was not right. My Father kept nothing from Me. Even so I tell you that a servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will you too. You are called to be an overcomer as you walk in My footsteps.
One of the strongest weapon you have is overcoming evil with good. Pray for those who are not innocent and who despitefully use you. As you walk purely before Me, I hear your prayers for those whose hearts are not right. As you forgive them and pray for them, I will hear your heart’s desires that they come into My image and repent of their deeds so that My kingdom will come to pass in their lives.
Ps 41:9 NKJV
Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
Matt 26:23-25 NKJV
He answered and said, “He who dipped his hand with Me in the dish will betray Me. The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.” Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, “Rabbi, is it I?” He said to him, “You have said it.”
John 15:20-21 NKJV
Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
Matt 5:44-48 NKJV
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
