That’s Not Your Donkey

Mark 11:2-3 “Go into that village over there,” he told them. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.  If anyone asks, ‘What are you doing?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs it and will return it soon.’”

Don’t touch my car!  I remember when I was a young man looking into someone’s parked car.  Man it was cool.  It was a Ferrari.

All of a sudden, I heard  someone behind me say, “Don’t touch my car.” I backed away. Then I complimented the gentleman about his vehicle.

People can be quite protective about their pride and joy. Since early in man’s history, transportation has been a matter of privilege. So when Jesus told his disciples to go grab somebody’s donkey, it was kind of like asking them to go grab someone’s car!

The Lord could have just simply commanded a donkey to appear and saved all the trouble. So, why in the world would he have gone to this extent to get a donkey?

The Lord may have given them the instruction to go fetch the donkey to help them develop their faith. He may have been working in the lives of the person who owned the donkey. He may have even been doing both.

The important point for us is to realize is that there are dynamics going on, not only with us, but with the people around us. That which God does around us is for our benefit but it may also be for the benefit of someone that we are walking with at the moment in life.

I’m sure the disciples wondered Why in the world are we going to fetch a donkey?  Can’t we just call Uber?

For believers, God has a wonderful and perfect plan for each of us.  God executes each of those plans at the same time.  It may sound impossible, but it is true.

Today, rejoice and be amazed at how great your God is.  He orchestrates your life and walk with precision and perfection.  Feel confident in your course today.

Have a blessed day!
