He (Jesus) was humiliated, smitten of men and ridiculed. He didn’t try to escape, he didn’t call for angelic help, because it was all part of the plan.
They hired guards to secure the tomb. Why worry after killing him? They were playing into the plan.
Unawares, they thought they were killing him. Little did they know they were making it possible for everyone to receive of this priceless gift of eternal life.
This eternal life which I already have.
1 John 5:13 KJV These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Ashamed? Scorned? Are you labelled a failure? Trust God, it’s all part of the plan.
Joseph summed it up perfectly.
Genesis 50:19-20 KJV And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?  But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
The disciples didn’t understand: Peter was distracted. Mary was inconsolable. Magdalene couldn’t accept he was dead; she continued to anoint him.
They didn’t know it was all part of the plan. Amidst the joy, remember that whatever you are going through, God has it all figured out.
You may not see the whole picture, but it will turn out for your good; Just believe. I believe, and I know it’s all part of the plan.
It’s not dead. Your dream is not shattered, your heart is not broken. Hand the pieces over to God, He has it all figured out. It’s all part of the plan.
You will come out victorious and only then will you realise that…It’s all part of the plan.
Don’t be moved by temporal defeat. FRIDAY was a sad day, and Saturday, all hope was lost but Friday and Saturday need to come before Sunday.
Go through it, grow through it, don’t give up yet; it’s not over yet. Whatever it is…God has it all figured out.
It’s part of the plan.
