All the disciples scattered when Jesus was arrested… will you?

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for showing so clearly how Jesus himself confirmed that prior scriptures were not be replaced by him, but rather that he was encompassing them. The old and the new are interconnected. Today’s two scriptures show this quite well:

And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. (Mark 14:27)

Yes, it was written in Zechariah:

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. (Zechariah 13:7)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here on behalf of Lindsey, your daughter who loves you. I pray that you will make yourself known to her. Lindsey, today’s scripture refers to all the disciples scattering when Jesus was arrested. Even Peter, who was so very confident that he would stand by Jesus no matter what. If we wonder what we would have done, we have the advantage of knowing the end of the story. We know that Jesus rose from the dead victoriously, so we need not worry nor be afraid nor scatter. So, that is my prayer for you Lindsey. I pray that you would know Jesus so well, that even when things look bad, you will still cling to him… actually, especially when things look bad! I pray that the Lord would grant you the courage to stick with him wherever you go. And we will give the glory to him. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

New Testament (Mark 14:27 ESV):
And Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away, for it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’

Old Testament (Zechariah 13:7 ESV):
“Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,

    against the man who stands next to me,”
declares the Lord of hosts.
Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
 I will turn my hand against the little ones.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
