The Lord Has Need of Them


Devotion:  Matthew 21:1-11

Picture with me; the Savior of the world needing a donkey and a colt.  These two animals were owned by a fellow believer.  How do I know this?  First of all, He created them and He knew the two disciples would be questioned as to why they were taking these two beasts.  He also knew when the disciples told the owner, “The Lord has need of them;” immediately he would send them.

Jesus came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, and a colt, sitting upon the coats given to Him.  He did not have a saddle so the King of Kings needed something to sit upon.  Don’t you love that people offered their coverings or coats; to the One whose blood would cover their sin?  Some were throwing their coats down before Him as an act of worship and honor to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Jesus’ entrance  into Jerusalem caused quite the stir among the people.  Anytime a crowd gathers; it makes others enquire, “What’s going on?

For what does the Lord have need of in your life?  Is it a physical thing for which you cannot bear to part?  Is it a habit; a secret sin, a person whom you are desperately trying to control?  Can you begin to release that habit, that sin, that person, to the Lord your God?  He stands with open arms; ready to bear those burdens and forgive those sins you were not meant to carry.

Prayer in Motion:

Oh Lord, You are my burden bearer.  You not only take my sins but You you bear the sins of the whole world.  What a Savior!  What a covering!  I just love You so!  I untie those things that have held me captive and give them to You Jesus.  It’s in Your Name I pray.  Amen
