Pause

Every morning is an opportunity to choose joy!

Listen

Those who had been sent found it exactly as he had said.

As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?”

They replied, “Its master needs it.” They brought it to Jesus, threw their clothes on the colt, and lifted Jesus onto it.

Luke 19:32-35

Think

It happened just as Jesus said it would happen! The two disciples Jesus sent to get the colt that Jesus needed found it just the way Jesus said it would be. The owners of the colt even asked the question Jesus predicted would be asked, “Why are you untying the colt?,” and the disciples were already prepared with an answer, “Its master needs it.”

It’s only human to have some hesitancy when we feel God is making some request of us, especially if the request seems a little odd or at first thought seems beyond what we feel we are capable of doing. But something tells me you’ve experienced God requesting something odd of you before, and with faith, hope, and courage you answered the call and it turned out just as God said it would!

The question now is, can you trust God to do it again? Remember the joy you felt when it turned out the last time just as God said it would. That same joy is waiting on you again!

Pray

God, I trust you! And I believe if I trust you with the outcome like I trusted you before, it will all turn out just as you said it would. Amen.

Go

As you go forth today remember this about God:

“Keep on making a way
Over and over again
You're always bringing me out
Over and over again
Lord, You've done so much
All to You I owe...
I will ever sing Your praise
Glory to Your name
Keep on making a way for me”

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, “Keep On Making A Way,” (2003)
