Satan knows that the greats thing he can attack is our mind and thoughts so we must always guard them at all times at all cost. Judas failed to do just that which cost him and it all started with a thought that led to four other things he had to do in order to betray Jesus.
Five things had to happen before Judas could betray Jesus.
Luke 22:3-6 (NIV)
1. He had to have a thought (ungodly one)
3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
2. He had to SEARCH for the chief priests and officers.
4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.
3. They had to AGREE to his plan
5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
4. He had to CONSENT to their offer.
Luke 6 He consented,
5. He WATCHED for an opportunity so there had to be an AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITY.
Luke 6. and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
Judas had time to change his thought, to turn around while in search of them, to decide not to go along or consent to the plan, and when that opportunity came he there was an opportunity not to go along with his plan but he did anyway and it cost him his life. Don’t let Satan put you in a position that may cost you like he did Judas. I PRAY THAT WE SURRENDER ALL TO HIM INCLUDING OUR THOUGHTS OUR HEARTS WITH HOLDING NOTHING!!
