Jesus said go get the colt which no one has ever sat on. Do you notice the disciples reaction to the instruction? The disciples didn’t complain or say why, how…
They followed instructions. They had no doubt in their hearts that Jesus was sure of what He was saying. They immediately picked up their feet and moved. Like He had said the met the owners and told him the Master has need for it.
The owners did not object.
Bible Reading: Luke 19: 29-35
God clearly had gone ahead of them.
Remember, Abraham, Lot’s Uncle? When God said follow me and I will show a Land. Abraham didn’t engage unnecessary negotiations. He trusted God.
Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: Genesis 12:1
Do you see why it is dangerous to hesitate and doubt when God gives you an instruction?
Lot was meant to get to that Mountain and escape for his life. Were it not for the intercession of Abraham he would have been destroyed along with Sodom! God hearkened to Abraham’s prayer. Mercy spoke on Lot’s behalf.

Compromises short change you.
Compromises take you out of God’s agenda
A compromised heart sees excuses and impossibilities.
Lot didn’t see how God could get him to the Mountain. He thought it was up to him to reach the mountain on his own. To trust the Lord and Obey were the keys to the Mountain. All we need is to follow with the Keys to the Mountain.

When God gives an instruction, He already knows the way.
The mountain was waiting for Lot. If it were not so the angels would not have told him to go there.
If God has not made provision for your journey, He won’t send you there.
You have to pack your bags and follow His instructions.
When God gives you an instruction, everything works to favor that cause.
All you need do is obey.
From one wrong decision borne out of distrust for God to another. The girls walked in the ways of their father.
Quick Prayer: Dear Jesus may my children learn to trust you. Let my life point my children to you, dear Jesus in Jesus name. Amen.
And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
Who told them God was able to sustain their lineage?
Look at Job… Can you see he is perfect example? He went from a man who lost all in a day to a man with a seven-fold increase. Holding on when everything falls apart. That’s called trust.
You want to get to the mountain, don’t you?
I certainly want to be on the Mount of Holiness, the Mount Zion of Old.
It is not a journey for the easily distracted, feeble minded, faint-hearted. It is for those who would rely absolutely on the Lord.
Many have wandered off the chosen path like Lot and his family
They have turned their backs on the Lord.
They have sought their own gains
They have bought into lies and deceit.
But it not about them but you…
Have you lost your way?
Come let’s go up the Mountain. Let us find our way back to the Holy Hills.
Let us return to the Lord.
The Mountain awaits us.
Jesus waits for us.
Time is running out.
The Mountain calls us to arise and take our journey
Awake from slumber and seek the Lord Jesus
Do you have ears?
Do you hear Jesus calling?
Lord Jesus surround me with your presence and fill me up Holy Spirit. Fill the hunger of this desperate soul. I long for you to satiate the unfathomable corners of my heart. Lord Jesus fill my heart today. Holy Spirit come as of old as a mighty rushing wind and overtake me right where I am in Jesus name. Amen.
