Say to the Daughter of Zion [inhabitants of Jerusalem], Behold, your KING is coming to you, lowly and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey [a beast of burden]. Matthew 21:5 AMP
At one point in Jesus journey, HE is riding on a beast of burden. A draught animal created or one could say purposed to carry or pull heavy loads. Said to be a hardy animal in that they can survive much: extreme temperatures, poor diet, lack of water and neglect would be the shortlist.
The one purposed to carry heavy loads carrying ONE purposed to do the same. The one purposed to survive much carrying ONE who survived it all.
Our KING came in riding on a beast of burden with the weight of the world on HIS shoulders.
A humble ONE from birth walking out HIS call
Totally qualified to handle it all
Born in a manger with no flash or glam
Jesus. Redeemer. Sacrificial LAMB
HIS fabric of life, peculiar? You bet
KING of Kings yet
God’s love for us caused HIM to give
The birth of our Savior that we might live
Jesus lived so humbly and full of grace
Come, HE calls, to our resting place
Oh, how could it be? The wonder of HIS birth
ONE born to rule heaven and earth
God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways
Beyond our understanding. Never ceases to amaze.
Be Strengthened and Encouraged in HIM,
God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; HE does great things beyond our understanding. Job 37:5 NIV
For to us a CHILD is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on HIS shoulders. And HE will be called wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace… Isaiah 9:6 NIV
