The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” – Matthew 21:6-9 NIV
Jesus was humble even when He was being exalted. To enter Jerusalem on a donkey, that must have been humbling.
It must have felt good when people acknowledged Him by setting down their cloaks before Him. It is courteous to set a clean path before someone. Many a time Jesus was not recognized for His good works, but He never sought the approval of men. He knew who He was. He would have done His Father’s works whether anyone noticed or not. He had the confidence of a king.
The Lord deserves our attention and adoration. He is worthy of praise. Amen.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. – Psalms 46:10 KJV
When we have been on the move, we welcome stillness. When we have so much to do, we sometimes forget that instead of feeling overwhelmed, we can pause, acknowledge our God, who is exalted, and take a breath.
Stopping to breathe connects us with our life force and our Heavenly Father. He is the reason we are alive, and all good things come from Him.
He can guide our choices and decisions. He knows the big picture as well as the long-term plan. He always knows what is best for us.
The Lord can provide for all our needs. Amen.
