Day 18 – Purchasing the potter’s field

Matthew 27:9-10

Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced, 10 and gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me.”

The religious leaders continually played Jesus as a fool. They thought they were a step ahead of Him. That He was no match for their combined intellect. They were trained, schooled by the best and Jesus was a son of a commoner, an uneducated man – at least according to their standards. But what they failed to recognize, is not only was He a step ahead of them, so was His Father. I mean way ahead of them…like centuries. On Jesus’ Journey to the Cross, He was never alone. His Father was way ahead of Him and as Christians, we can have confidence knowing His Father…our Father is always centuries ahead of us. The confidence which comes in knowing this, produces an unstoppable force of Victory in our Lives. Aren’t you blown away by God’s unparalleled brilliance?
