The scripture for today, July 30, is John 7:30 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come.”
Even though during the last year of his life, many people wanted to kill Jesus out of jealousy or fear or pure meanness, he was never afraid to keep teaching. Why? Because he knew his life was ultimately in the hands of the heavenly Father.
Do we feel fear sometimes because of things going on around us? Do we fear failure, or ruin, or false rumors, or even imprisonment or our life? Remember, each life is in the heavenly Father’s hands.
