So the disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them.
They find the donkey, untie it, and bring it to Jesus.
But here’s something that Jesus says that is quite fascinating. He says – “….tell him that the Lord needs them.”
The Lord needed the donkey.
He NEEDED the donkey.
He needed the DONKEY.
Did he really? Well, I don’t think so. But I believe He CHOSE to need that donkey.
He said, “The Lord needs them.”
“Well, what’s your point?”, you say.
In His sovereignty, and His power, and His might, and His love, He has ordained this world and dialed into our lives in a way that He has chosen to somehow partner with us to carry out His plans, to somehow call us co-heirs in all that He has in store.
It sounds almost blasphemous until you read Romans 8:17.
But it’s the truth, isn’t it?
He used the donkey, and He wants to use you.
Oh and here’s another truth. That donkey? It was chosen to carry Jesus way before it was born.
Centuries before even Jesus was born, it was prophecied (Zechariah 9:9-13) that Jesus would ride on THIS donkey.
Jesus says the same thing about you.
He chooses to say He needs you.
And it doesn’t matter what you’re tied to right now, it doesn’t matter what’s holding you back or what’s restricting you.
Like the donkey, He’s going to untie you, He’s going to set you free, and He’s going to carry out the amazingly beautiful plans for you.
He used the donkey. He can definitely use you.
