How to walk with authority: Verse of the Day


‭Matthew 21:2-5 NLT‬
[2] “Go into the village over there,” he said. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a donkey tied there, with its colt beside it. Untie them and bring them to me. [3] If anyone asks what you are doing, just say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will immediately let you take them.” [4] This took place to fulfill the prophecy that said, [5] “Tell the people of Jerusalem, ‘Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey— riding on a donkey’s colt.’”

Jesus taught us how to carry ourselves when we have authority. He taught us that the more authority we have, the more effort we must make to be humble. To be humble is a choice. This story of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey’s colt shows how a true servant of God will be recognized. Through humility

“Look, your King is coming to you. He is humble, riding on a donkey – riding on a donkey’s colt”. Christ didn’t ride into Jerusalem with a brass band and a load of popular musicians and well known figures. He didn’t even come riding majestically on a beautifully decorated horse. Why? He chose to!

How would you walk on this earth if you could raise the dead, heal all kinds of sicknesses, multiply a few loaves of bread and a few fish to feed thousands, and walk on water? How would you talk to people and treat people when you could speak to storms to become calm?

Authority if not handled properly can destroy lives. Some use their authority to abuse, intimidate, disrespect, dictate, and eliminate all they didn’t like and those who oppose them. Jesus was never like that. He was so humble that when they wanted to arrest Him, they needed someone to identify Him!

Friends, if we want to be triumphant and fulfill our assignments on earth, we must learn to be humble. Authority, like knowledge, can puff you up. So the more you get, the more you must learn to control yourself. Those who learn to humble themselves before God will be lifted up in honor (James 4:10).
