Scripture:   John (NIV) 12:13  They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!”  “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”  “Blessed is the king of Israel!”  

14  Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written:
15  “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion; see, your king is coming seated on a donkey’s colt.”
16  At first his disciples did not understand all this.  Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him. 

Observation:   After the resurrection of Jesus, the disciples discovered that they had actually been a part of fulfilling some prophecies concerning Jesus.  At the time Jesus was on the young colt, and coats were spread on the road as a walkway for the colt, they had no idea that this had been written by the prophet Isaiah many years before. 

Application:  I need to be walking close to God at all times because I never know when the Holy Spirit will use me, even when I might not realize it.  

Prayer:   Holy Spirit, I want it to be easy for you to lead me to say and do what will be a blessing to you and useful to others.  Amen
