[The Glory Unveiled]
While Pilate was sitting on the judge’s seat, his wife sent him this message: “Don’t have anything to do with that innocent man [Jesus], for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.” ( Matthew 27:19 )
The wife of Pilate had a strong impression from God in a dream, concerning a very delicate matter her husband was involved in, thus, the judgment of Jesus, whether He was deserving of death or not. She was wise and sensible enough not to just brush off the dream. She is a kind of wife—like Abigail who prevented David from killing Nabal, her husband—who helps prevent evil from entering their home. In marriage and any human relationships, we must be discerning enough to keep trouble far from our home or sphere of interaction. If she had just brushed off that dream or better still decided not to tell her husband about it, she would have been partly responsible for the death of Jesus.__On the part of Pilate, we can see that, sometimes it’s not just enough to make decisions because you are sitting on a positional throne; a judges’ seat. Decisions should be informed by discernment and revelation. Any life altering, history writing decisions we make must rest on the shoulders of understanding sponsored by discernment. Without discernment, many destinies have been aborted and lives dashed to ineffectiveness. In our position and capacity as whoever we may be, we must still listen to good counsel, which is able to save us a lot of future catastrophes. Let us allow ourselves to be led by the will of God.
Prayer_Bead : Father in Heaven, the discerner of thoughts and intentions, open the eyes of my heart to hidden realities as I walk with you. Teach me to choose with an understanding of motives. In Jesus’ name.
