THE LORD NEEDS IT Luke 19:29-35
“If any one asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this, ‘The Lord has need of it.'” (v31)
God created everything for a purpose. In Genesis 1:26 when man was to be created, God first declared his purpose before creating him saying: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the see, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping things that creepeth upon the earth.” God will not create what He does not need. Whatever you find on earth has a reason for existing. In today’s Bible reading, even the Owner of the donkey did not know the eternal purpose God had for his donkey until the Lord’s message got to him, asking him to release it to fulfill the prophecy concerning it. (Zechariah 8:9) This donkey looked ordinary to its owner, but to its Maker it was a unique donkey. You therefore need to look at things through the eyes of the Creator to understand their purpose. These days, there is a tendency for an architect to drop his or her skill set when going into ministry. such people fail to realize that church needs architects to design her buildings. In Exhodus 36:1-2 God purposely raised Besalee and Aholiab for the purpose of the building of His tabernacle. Beloved, the Lord needs that skill, that gift, that money and that position you have. I appeal to you to use your talents primarily for God, and secondarily as your meal ticket.
PRAYER LINE: Father, please open my eyes to see the divine purpose for my existence. Grant me grace to use the gifts, skills, position and wealth You have endowed me with for Your glory and pleasure.
Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father of lights (James 1:17)
