Here lately I have been thinking about life. You know, how funny it can be at times. And then there are times when it can be downright baffling. I once heard a preacher preach a message on the colt that Jesus rode on. (Matthew 21:2-3) He elaborated on the colt being tied to a post next to his mom, and he used a bit of his imagination. I would like to share with you what I gleaned from his message.
If that colt could talk I’m sure he would have asked his mom why they were tied to the post. (Being the young whipper snapper that he was.) I’m sure that his mom probably answered with much wisdom. “Well son, I’m sure that God has a good reason for us to be tied to this post. Always remember that good things happen to those who wait.” In the meantime the colt was most likely growing more and more restless with each passing moment. Until finally, just when his patience was running thin, the Lord sent his disciples to untie him. Little did he know that he would be responsible for transporting the King of kings and Lord of lords on his back. Yes, the glory of God rested on that colt!
Okay, these are my thoughts, not the preachers. Often times in my life I have felt like I was tied to a post. I would do everything within my power to try and free myself. Feeling confined is completely contrary to my personality. However, God always knew who to tie next to me. Usually someone that I would least expect. (Unlike the colt.) Anyway, God would give that person the exact right words to speak so that I wouldn’t have a complete meltdown…LOL! Little did I know while I was busy trying to untie the knot that kept me confined, God had something awesome up His sleeve for me. I’m so thankful that God knows how to keep us where He wants us, so that He can use us for His glory. Weeeee, that was a mouth full.
So, if I can leave you with one thought, here it is. If you feel that life has you tied to a post, and you’re trying to get free. Wait! Don’t be hasty, God has an awesome plan for you. My dear friend, He wants His glory to rest upon you, so that He can use you to untie others that are tied to a post.
Until next time,
