Trusting Jesus

As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. Mark 11:1-2


I don’t understand. It sounds as if Jesus is telling his disciples to steal. Yet, as the story unfolds the owner of the colt was okay with them borrowing his colt. There is much of Jesus I do not understand. The question is, “Do I trust him?” He ALWAYS knows what he is talking about and what does not make sense—will eventually. I just need to do as he says—like his two disciples. So when Jesus calls for me to bless those who curse me, I just need to do it. When he tells me seek first his kingdom in my life – I will. I believe Jesus has a plan for me. I need to do what he says to find out what that plan is. Sometimes it is unnerving, but it is always exciting.
