THE LORD HAS NEED OF THEM
Matthew 21:2-3 NKJV “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”
What will you do if someone came to you asking for your car, or cars, saying that “The Lord has need of them”? Will you release them immediately, or will you say, “I’ve not heard from God, let Him speak to me first, I also hear from God”?
We become too wise and funny when it comes to giving to God. That’s when, suddenly, every body wants to hear from God first, meanwhile, we didn’t need to hear God before we paid school fees, house rent, bought new clothes and shoes, travelled abroad, and even got married. And God is just “shaking His head”. We are just too funny.
Well, we all have something that the Lord needs; our time, our talents, our voices, our strength, our resources, our friends, our education, and so on. Some of us have been too busy for God, some are avoiding Him in several ways, and some others are giving Him excuses and trying to make Him see reasons why He cannot get whatever He wants from them. He still has need of them.
