GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 9
GOD’S WORD FOR JANUARY 9 ~ ~ Matthew 21:2-7, “saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. 3 And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”
4 All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
5 “Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ”
6 So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them.
7 They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them.”
When Jesus sent His disciples for the donkey colt for Him to ride into Jerusalem, (fulfilling Zechariah 9:9 ) He said to tell those that ask why they were taking it, that “the Master has need of it and by and by He will return it.”
Jesus used a thing of this world to bring Him into glory in Jerusalem. He uses things of this world to bring Him into glory in our lives, also.
Sometimes we see or hear of great manifestations of His Glory in our lives and those of others, and sometimes we see the things and events of this world just fall into place and His miracles are done through ordinary things. He uses people many times, to bring about His miraculous changes in our lives, benefiting both ourselves and the other person many times.
Sometimes, on the other hand, things don’t fall into place, and this is a miracle as much, or more, than the other, for that is when He does the inner miracles in us, if we seek Him more deeply because of it, and ask Him for the lessons He wants us to learn.
So, let’s train ourselves to always see Him in all the events of our lives…”good”, or “bad”…they’re all avenues to get closer to Our Dear Lord.
Let’s not discount any type of intervention in our lives. Those things are miracles, just as great as if it was transformed before our eyes. The lessons learned during the process are priceless!!!
