In this picture, of Jesus sending them to get a colt, I see a picture of obedience even when it may have not made sense. We are called to obey whether we understand or not. Nothing can silence our God. He speaks, the one of many distinctions between him and false gods.
Nothing should shake us, this side of heaven. Why? Because we have a blessed hope, that the Lord will return one day. He is the grace of God who has appeared before all men. He gave himself. Why? That we might be redeemed from every lawless deed and be purified for himself, his own special people, zealous for good works.
It is wise to seek the counsel of a multitude of sound Christians. Words spoken in due season are very good. The heart of the righteous studies how to answer.
In Esther, we see the favor of God upon an orphan, having neither father or mother.
Oh Lord, help us to always obey whether we understand what you are telling us to do or not. Guard us from our sin ever silencing what you want to speak to us. Thank you for the blessed hope we have in Jesus. May we serve him always. In Jesus name…amen.
