nd it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him. (Luke 19:29-31 KJV)

The colt in our scriptural text was tied which means it was denied its freedom. It's movement was restricted. No one paid attention to it. No one has ever seen any usefulness for it even though it was strategically positioned at the entering in of the gate. People going in and out of the gate saw the colt but that was not enough to change its story. Also consider that the colt was located in a village and usually a village is not as prosperous like the city, the infrastructures in this village could not be compared with what is found in Jerusalem. The colt might have thought to itself, "well, there is nothing good about me, no one is looking at me rather they poke fun and amuse themselves by beating me with sticks, I know one day when my owner is tired, he will get rid of me."

Now, the colt was tied, no one found any usefulness for it (not even the owner) and was positioned in a disadvantaged location yet Jesus saw the colt with the eye of the Spirit and amongst all the colts in that village and even the city of Jerusalem, The Lord desired that one.

Dear friend, I do not know how you lived out your 2022 probably like the colt, you were tied, found yourself at a disadvantaged location/job/business or probably you were even at a place where people could see you (like the colt at the entrance), yet nobody took notice rather you were the object of ridicule and shame. I have good news for you this 2023, Jesus has seen you. He has shown interest to turn your story around this year. Amongst everyone in the village/city/at your job/family, wherever you are, it is YOU that He has chosen to honor.

Now listen, Jesus did not search out the colt Himself, He saw it and sent two(not one) of His Disciples to locate, loose and bring Him the colt. Dear Friend, the colt could not untie itself, The Lord has to send His disciples to do the job. There are situations in life you cannot go through without The Lord sending people to you and I pray specially for you that the Lord will instruct people to honor you. You will enjoy all The Lord has for you this year and beyond. You know what, if The Lord has said it, no one can stop it. He will take you from obscurity (like he did for the colt) and project you to the world. Get ready because it is your season for liftings. Welcome on board.
