The Lord Hath Need of You June 30
Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never a man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.
And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
In a directive from Jesus, I noticed that the disciples didn’t ask any questions or doubt that the colt would be there. They just did it, and they followed his instructions saying nothing more, nothing less, and the owners let them take it.
A directive, yesterday I was praying for a man, and the Holy Spirit said, “Protect him in his night runs.” When I prayed, I added three more words by saying, “on his bike.” The Holy Spirit quickly corrected me, “I said, Protect him in his night runs.”
I asked the man if that meant anything to him and he was very excited and said yes it did. Three more words, and it would have meant nothing to him. The meaning would have been changed and worthless. It’s important to be obedient to the word given. We can see that the disciples followed His instructions and have learned obedience.
Here’s the order of sequence in Luke chapters 18:19-20
Jesus spoke in parables, comparing life to heaven, the kingdom of God. He gave a directive, loosed a bound colt, cleaned house, and was tested.
That’s how it goes for most of us bound by our circumstances tied to our bondage, the Lord sends the Holy Spirit to witness to you, His words set you free, most of the time the spiritual enemy has bound you with sin, taken ownership over your life. Jesus releases you from your bondage and cleans away your past. In the beginning, it’s a joyful ride, and everything seems new and wonderful, then the cleaning process, followed by testing.
This little donkey teaches us how to be led to our destiny, and suddenly your life is changed.
He is: Adonai
Sovereign, Lord, Master, Owner
