Loose Your Donkey

"Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, ..." (Matthew 21:2,3).

A donkey was an animal of commerce in the days of Jesus. It was used to carry great burdens of goods from place to place. He was known as the "beast of the burden." This donkey was no doubt owned by a village business person. But, Jesus told His disciples to fetch the donkey for "He had need of it." This donkey played an important part in Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. It was a day that was the culmination of three years of ministry. Jesus chose to use a vehicle of commerce to bring Him into His most important public display.

We are entering a time in our own history in which God is saying to business people, "loose your donkey for my purposes. I have need of it." God is preparing His church to be a vessel for ushering in a great harvest of souls. He is preparing His remnant of business people, who are like a tribe within the church, to be a major force in this great harvest.

"He will tether his donkey to a vine, his colt to the choicest branch; he will wash his garments in wine, his robes in the blood of grapes. His eyes will be darker than wine, his teeth whiter than milk" (Genesis 49:11-12). Friend, is your donkey tied to the living vine, the choicest branch of Jesus Himself? When we are tied to the living vine designed for His use, we will be useful in the Kingdom of God. Jesus wants to free us from the bondage of business slavery to walking in freedom so that others may see God's grace flowing through us and our place in the business world. Is your donkey available for His use?

Today, ask Jesus to allow the vine to flow through you in every area of your life.
