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!

Rejoice

“And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.”

Luke 1:47

Our LORD really has done magnificent things for us. He has given us salvation! Walking through this life is the worst it’s gonna get and for the non-believer it’s the best it’s gonna be!

So let’s rejoice in His salvation today!

“My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.”

Psalm 34:2

When we, as believers, just wrap ourselves up in the LORD, looking at every problem or situation, knowing the LORD is in it and has it covered, we can rejoice and be glad!

“And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD; It shall rejoice in His salvation.”

Psalm 35:9

Salvation is forever; this life is temporary, so just look to the LORD and rejoice in everything, knowing He’s got you and your situation! Have a blessed day rejoicing in the LORD, remember He’s got this!

The LORD is the answer!

“But the angel said to him, Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.”

Luke 1:13

The same goes for us. Don’t be afraid. God hears are prayers too, and answers really our on the way!

“But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The LORD will hear when I call to Him.”

Psalm 4:3

The key is to set ourselves apart to Him, not looking at the situations, but looking to the LORD! Also, not looking to the world, which has no real answers.

“My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.”

Psalm 5:3

Look to the LORD first thing in the morning and first in any situation! Also just remember the LORD hears you and is answering in His perfect time! Have a blessed day!

Shabbat Shalom.

Step out of the boat!

“Therefore they took two chariots with horses; and the king sent them in the direction of the Syrian army, saying, Go and see.”

2 Kings 7:14

The LORD always provides everything we need, when we need it, we just need to step out!

“And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Jesus.”

Philippians 4:19

So no matter how bad things may look or how rough the sea of life seems, we need to realize God has it all covered!

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11

So we may get into tough situations , where it seems there is no possible way out. Know this, the LORD knows and has it covered. He has a plan and it’s going to be all right! All we need to do is step out, just like Peter. Jesus called him out of the boat and then he walked on water, but not before he stepped out! Today, get out of the boat and have a blessed day stepping out with the LORD!

Share the good news

“Then they said to one another, We are not doing right. This is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”

2 Kings 7:9

Same goes for us, everyday is a good day when you know you have salvation. So why are we quiet? Let’s not wait until tomorrow, let’s get out and share the good news of salvation now!

“This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalm 118:24

Today is the day to share about the LORD and now is the time. Don’t put off sharing the good news of salvation. Time is short and people around you are in desperate need of salvation!

“Sing to the LORD, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.”

Psalm 96:2

So let’s get out there and share the good news of salvation! Pray and look for opportunities to share and have a blessed day doing it!
