The Miraculous & Supernatural Are More Common Than You Realize

‘And Jesus, when he had found a young donkey, sat thereon; as it is written, Fear not, daughter of Zion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on a donkey’s colt.’ John 12:14-15

I can imagine you’re wondering how this scripture ties in with the title of this article. Well, I’m going to do my best to show you. This is something the Lord has been teaching me over the past decade or so. In these verses, notice that not only was it a miracle that Jesus knew about the donkey and its colt, but also where they would be found. God also worked some kind of miracle in the owner of these animals so that he would be willing to release them. It is possible that the Lord also revealed to this man that Jesus would need his animals.

It’s possible also that he was just a devoted follower of Jesus who gladly surrendered them when he knew Jesus was the one wanting them. Either way, it was just as much a miracle that the owner was willing to surrender them as it was that Jesus knew exactly where they would be. This happening spoken of in John 12:14-15 is the fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy in Zechariah 9:9. In reading this, you notice how specific Zechariah’s prophecy is and how exactly it was fulfilled. Zechariah prophesied Jesus not only riding a donkey, but also a colt (unbroken), the foal of a donkey.

Zechariah also mentioned the people rejoicing greatly and shouting which certainly came to pass on this day. All four gospels include a triumphal entry, but only Matthew records a donkey with a colt. There appears to be a possible contradiction here but there is an explanation. And it is that Jesus rode the colt while the other donkey went along beside its mother. No doubt, He rode each animal part of the way. There is no indication that He made previous arrangements with anyone there to obtain this donkey and its colt. This was nothing less than supernatural knowledge imparted to Jesus through the Holy Spirit.

As Jesus did, we need to know and let God work in all areas of our lives at all times. Around fifteen years ago the Lord began to show me how he was working miraculously in my life nearly all the time, doing things behind the scenes that would reveal His touch at a later time. God showed me that He was sending people into my life to impart something to me and also for me to impart something into their lives as well. If you’re truly living your life for God and have made Jesus the LORD of your life, then you can be sure that there are supernatural things happening at all times for specific purposes regarding you.

There are areas that God is working in that you wouldn’t think He would or even need to. But He is arranging things that touch your life so they will bring about His perfect will in your life and bring bountiful blessings to you but also enable you to carry out the CALL upon your life. Always, every day, know that God is not afar off but that He is actively involved in you to produce extraordinary happenings in your life continually. Glory to God.
