Question Answer Series [17]: When the Lord needs ,, ?


Question: When the Lord needs ,, ?


If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away Mat 21:3

Lord needed a donkey, and the donkey and colt were let go when the disciples said the Lord needed them. Do we realize our savior needs us? The donkey had a glorious walk to Jerusalem on olive branches and cloaks because Jesus was on the donkey. The donkey did not become a horse to walk in glory, the only difference was, that the untied donkey had Jesus on top. Once Jesus has come down, it is the old unnoticed donkey.

Jesus needed only the donkey, but the colt was also untied. It does not matter who you are, all that matters; that the world see Jesus who you are carrying. Is the spotlight on Jesus? People sang for Jesus, not for the donkey, and never take the glory. Jesus is looking for an available donkey not the ability of the donkey. We need to be His donkey.

Jesus and his disciples approached Jerusalem, they came to Bethphage at the Mount of Olives. There Jesus sent two of the disciples on ahead with these instructions: “Go to the village there ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied up with her colt beside her. Untie them and bring them to me. And if anyone says anything, tell him, ‘The Master needs them’; and then he will let them go at once.” This happened in order to make come true what the prophet had said:

So the disciples went and did what Jesus had told them to do: They brought the donkey and the colt, threw their cloaks over them, and Jesus got on. A large crowd of people spread their cloaks on the road while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds walking in front of Jesus and those walking behind began to shout, “Praise to David’s Son! God bless him who comes in the name of the Lord! Praise be to God!”

Jesus knew where the donkey was, what the state was, who is with the donkey, and who would stop the deliverance. The donkey had no clue of any of these things. Why are we worrying, when our Lord knows every minute detail about us?
