The LORD has need!

“As He approached Beit- Pagei and Beit-Anyah, by the mount of Olives, he sent two talmudic (disciples), instructing them, Go into the village ahead; on entering it, you will find a colt tied up that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks why you are untying it, tell him, The LORD needs it.”

Luke 19:29-31 CJB

Often times the LORD will ask us to do things that make no sense to us like: Noah build a ark, Abraham sacrifice your son, Moses wave your staff, Joshua walk around the city seven times or Jesus telling the disciples sit the folks down so I can bless a couple fish and some bread to feed them! This account is no different: go get a donkey that no one has ridden on and bring him to me! There really is so much to unpack here, but let’s keep it simple. When the LORD calls, we need to do! Move there, talk to them or start this!

“But God chose what the world considers nonsense in order to shame the wise; God chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the strong; and God chose what the world looks down on as common or regards as nothing in order to bring to nothing what the world considers important; so that no one should boast before God.”

1 Corinthians 1:27-29 CJB

See, the world looks at us just like we are donkeys: not really good for anything, but the LORD looks at the donkey (us) as useful for His perfect purposes! Remember, if you’re a donkey, you can’t really boast for much!

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways, says Adonai.”

Isaiah 55:8 CJB

Today, you may feel like a donkey (jack ass), but remember it was this donkey that Yeshua (Jesus) rode on into Jerusalem The same goes for us as donkeys: it is us who get to proclaim the good news of salvation to the world! So your situation may seem crazy, but remember THE LORD HAS NEED! Have a blessed day knowing the LORD loves you and has need of you!
