Have you ever been betrayed? One day or another you will be betrayed or maybe you will betray. Betrayal is painful....and usually occurs by someone you were supposed to be able to trust. Betrayal stems back into biblical times when Jesus was betrayed by Judas. When Judas realized that Jesus' kingdom was "spiritual" and not based on physical or political security Judas betrayed Jesus. Judas believed he would be a man of status standing by Christ's kingdom. When he became aware of this truth Judas was unable to process the value of trusting Jesus. Judas believed political status and wealth was the security he needed. Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 silver coins. Life with Jesus is eternal. 30 silver coins can be spent in one day. The relationship that Christ had put his time into with Judas was thrown away because of greed. A.... "What is in it for me?" attitude. Trust is built and earned and can be torn down instantly. Mathew 26:14 "What are you willing to give me if I turn Him over to you?" States Judas. A moment of greed can cause a betrayal.
Do not be surprised if these people and situations are wiped from your life. "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. he cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it can be even more fruitful." John 15:1-2

Betrayal stays with both the individual betrayed and the one who has betrayed forever. The only remedy for this pain is forgiveness. This does not mean you need to continue to associate. You are setting yourself free in the grace of the gifts that Jesus has died for.

The one Betrayed: may feel as though they can not trust, is afraid to allow people into your life, goes into a defense mode, and demands they will never let anyone in who could ever hurt them again.

The Betrayer: may feel successful, proud of their destruction and lies, maybe they are in denial of their own truth in their own lives so they may not be aware of their betrayal (This may sound strange and unforgivable but in the word it says "Forgive them for they know not what they do."), but for sure they have destroyed a relationship that it is unlikely to ever repair.

The only freedom for the betrayed or the betrayer is truth, forgiveness, and let go and let God. Remember it as a learning experience and apply it to your life as wisdom.  A gift.

Most likely, if you have been betrayed, do not hold your breath that the betrayer will ever admit they have wronged you; pray!  It is easier for these individuals who have a pattern of betrayal in their lives to justify it. I guess it is easier than looking themselves in the mirror and admitting to themselves they need to change but this is not our job to figure it out.  God already knows the beginning and the end.  You can only really succeed in true change with the grace of God in your life. You can forgive these people in your life through God's grace so you can move on whether they ever apologize or not. Then leave the betrayal at the cross with the baggage that has weighed your mind down and the baggage that has kept you from living the beautiful life you have been given. Enjoy your knew freedom and do not turn around and pick up the past ever again. Let go! Enjoy all the new and fresh experiences you are about to endure. All that you love in your life will be there one way or another. When you think you have lost everything you just gained more than what you could have ever imagined. Have a wonderful day!! God bless.
