YOU ARE NEEDED
“…say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.”
(Mark 11: 3)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
The colt that Jesus needed in His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, was tied. Apparently, the owners had no need for it; they probably underestimated the colt; they had a colt but found no assignment for it. The colt was in an awkward position where it was useful but no one had need for it.
When it was time for Jesus to march into Jerusalem, He sent two of His disciples to untie the colt. The owners of the colt thought it was useless, but Jesus thought it was useful. They had no need for the colt, but Jesus gave the colt the miracle of being needed and being put to use.
Friend, you may be surrounded by men who think you are useless and can’t serve any purpose, but God will send you men who see and need the value in you. God will send you men who will give you a chance to excel and show your worth;
God will send you men who celebrate the champion in you even when no one believes in you; God will send you men who will call your potentials and potentialities into action on the big stage of life.
Your destiny is not defined by those who think you are useless and should remain tied at a spot; you are not a product of those who don’t treat you well. Don’t judge yourself harshly because of those who don’t believe you are worth anything. Some may sneer at you, jeer at you, or even try to de-market you, but you are useful and you are needed.
Pay less attention to haters and those who don’t treat you well. You deserve to be celebrated, you are loaded with value, you have what it takes to fulfill purpose, and you are definitely needed.
2 Corinthians 4: 7 says: “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”
Pray With Me: Lord, I am loaded with value; send me men who need me, in Jesus’ name!
