During Jesus grand entry to Jerusalem to conclude His earthly assignment, He used a donkey for the journey. When he entered the city, he was welcomed with excitement and majestic grandeur. However, possibly many people didn’t take note of the donkey. Jesus was the only focus; he was more valuable than the donkey. As expedient the role of the donkey was at the time, it was never put on the centre stage. Probably few or no people talk about the ass.
If God is using you mightily, if miracles are being wrought through you, if your voice is as a voice of angel, if God has helped you to build a mega-Church, if you have achieved great feat in the area of your discipline or career etc.deserves ., stay humble and avoid drawing attention to yourself as the one doing it.
Give God the glory He deserves.
Matt21: 1- 10, Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “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. 3 And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”,………,………………..
7 They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. 8 And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:
“Hosanna to the Son of David!
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’
Hosanna in the highest!”
10 And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?”
It is normal for people to appreciate the grace of God upon your life. But it is for you to point them to the one “behind the scene” which makes it happens which is God.
