“But every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, than you shall break its neck. And all the firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem.”
Exodus 13:13 NKJB
Every donkey was to be redeemed by a lamb! Who’s the donkey (jackass) so to speak? We are! Remember, donkeys aren’t kosher and honestly, neither are we. We are unclean also; the only thing that cleans us is JESUS!
“Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.”
Psalm 31:5 NKJB
Even though the donkey was unclean, let’s look how mightily God has used them! Abraham used a donkey to bring Isaac to Mount Moriah, God used one to talk to Balaam and Jesus rode one into Jerusalem, to name a few! So, if God will use a donkey, He can and will use you and me!
“Rejoice with all your heart, daughter of Tziyon! Shout out loud, daughter of Yerushalayim! Your king is coming to you. He is righteous, and He is victorious. Yet He is humble – He’s riding on a donkey, yes, on a lowly donkey’s colt.”
Zechariah 9:9 CJB
Today, we all have a lot to rejoice about; we are saved! So, let’s shout out about the good news of salvation! We all may be donkeys, a bunch of jackasses, but the LORD still can and does use us mightily! Have a blessed day shouting loudly about the LORD!
