Luke 19:35-36 CEV: Then they led the donkey to Jesus. They put some of their clothes on its back and helped Jesus get on. And as he rode along, the people spread clothes on the road in front of him.
My dear friend in Christ, today we see Jesus as He rode on a donkey and people spread their clothes on the road in front of Him. What comes to the mind is, where the people actually spreading their clothes because of the donkey? Certainly no. They were doing it because Jesus was on that donkey. No body in His right mind will spread his cloth for a donkey. But because it’s being used by the Lord Jesus, they had no problem spreading their clothes.
This is the same with us. When we allow Jesus to use us, people will see His glory in our lives and favor us in measures we may never understand. We will only be beneficiaries of His glory. It’s a mistake to work without Him thinking we can gain men’s favor or God’s favor without Jesus Christ. I encourage you to stop struggling with life and allow Him use you. Just as that donkey enjoyed the benefits that came from being used by the master, you will certainly enjoy the even greater benefits because His glory will not only be on you but He Himself will dwell in you.
Declare to yourself loud: I am available, use me oh Lord.
- Lord Jesus, take over my life and use me for your glory.
- Precious Holy Spirit, strengthen my resolve to serve God. In Jesus Name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
