God Wants To use Your Donkey 02-18-19

Good morning everyone. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. Every time I sit down in my secret place I’m reminded of things God has inspired me to do and today is no different. So you know I’m about to share don’t you?

Today’s Prayer

Father, Thank you for your promises! Thank you for opening your arms and welcoming us to come to you, to find rest in you, to find freedom in you, to have abundant life in you. I cry out to you now for those who are heavy on my heart, for those who are going through the fire and those who are going through the valleys; for those who face difficulties and those who have come through trials and are triumphant because of you. I pray for your grace and mercy, your peace and love, your hand upon their lives. I pray for miracles and ministries. I pray that all who are weary will cry out to you and trust you. And I thank you so much for all that you have done and all that you will do. May your works and miracles in our lives be witness to the world that you are God. May you be glorified and souls be saved. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

God Wants To Use Your Donkey

“Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them” (Matt 21:2-3).

In Bible times, donkeys were a primary means for distributing goods and services. They represented commerce in the scriptures. Jesus told the disciples He had need of someone’s donkey to ride into Jerusalem, the religious and spiritual center of their society. It would become known as Jesus’ triumphal entry.

I was attending a Christian business conference a little while back. It was the night before I was to speak a second time when I was prompted in the spirit to add teaching segment on the above passage of scripture to my message. I didn’t really understand but I was obedient. I called one of my buddies whom I came to the conference with and told him about what had happened.

I’m sure the disciples must have been uneasy with Jesus’ request to untie a perfect stranger’s donkey and take it. After all, He was asking them to take what was the equivalent to a man’s “truck.” And men love their trucks! Jesus was illustrating that He wanted to use that man’s donkey, or that which represented their work, to bring glory to the Father.

The next morning I went to breakfast. While we were eating, a lady named Maggie joined us. Maggie was from California and was an intercessor for the conference. She told us that she had fasted 40 days in preparation for the event. Half jokingly I said “So Maggie has the Lord spoken to you about this conference?” “Oh yes,” she said, very excitedly. On 17th of this month the Lord said that you and your business group needed to give your donkeys to the Lord.” My buddy and I looked at one another in amazement. We instantly knew that God was confirming His Word to me from the night before.

That day the focus of our conference became the need for the software business people I was a part of to “give our donkeys” to the Lord. Friends, have you ever dedicated your work life to the Lord? Today, why not commit your donkey to the Lord. He will use it to bring glory to Himself and fulfill your life more than you could ever imagine.
