The Humble King

  • Pilate therefore said to him, 'Aren't you speaking to me? Don't you know that I have power to release you, and have power to crucify you?' Jesus answered, 'You would have no power at all against me, unless it were given to you from above. Therefore he who delivered me to you has greater sin.' John 19 WEB

    Beaten and bloody, wearing a purple robe and a crown made out of thorns, Jesus quietly listened to Pilate speak. When He did not answer Pilate's question, Pilate began to tell Jesus that he had authority to set Him free, or to crucify Him. When Pilate finished, Jesus told him that he would have no authority over Him at all unless it had been given to him from above.

    Jesus recognized where He was, and that this was no accident. No man had authority over Him unless it had been given to them from above. No one could take His life from Him, unless His Father in heaven allowed it. The Humble King of Kings submitted to His Father's will, and He endured the cross.

    When Job went through his trial, satan had to get permission from God first before he could touch him. Job was a righteous man and God had placed a hedge of protection around him, his house, and all that he had (Job 1:10). A much stronger hedge would have been around Jesus. They could only harm Him, if God allowed them to do so.

    The ones in authority over you today are allowed to be there by God. No one can touch or lay a hand on you without your Father's permission to do so. I know things happen that we do not understand, like Stephen being martyred (Acts 7:59). We have to remember that we cannot see the whole picture as He can. So until the Lord tells you otherwise, prayerfully submit to those in leadership over you, for they would not be there without His permission. Great servants, can also become great leaders.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me to see Your hand on my life. Give me a clear vision of Your will for me and the grace to accomplish it today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).
