and said to them, “Go to the village ahead of you. As soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. — Mark 11:2 NET
Jesus always knows what we will find on any road we may take. He knows what each and every tomorrow will be for us. We cannot map out a single day, but He knows all. Our life is not a haphazard thing. The events and incidents of our days are not accidents. They are all foreseen by our Lord, and are part of His plan for us. We meet a stranger. We say we met him by chance; but that chance meeting shapes all our future. Christ knew about it.
If we understand this it cannot but give confidence to us as we go out day by day into life’s unopened paths. We do not know what lies before us – what experiences, duties, obstacles and hindrances, what sorrows and trials; but there is One who sees and knows it all, and He is our Friend and Guide. If we are ready simply to do His will, to follow His instructions, we shall find all prepared for our coming.
