How many times do we dare to question the Lord, and say "Why do you loose Him", that is, question our life's circumstances and doubt His providence? Or perhaps we do not openly doubt our Lord, but our own prejudices and presuppositions and spiritual blindness have not allowed us to see the hand of God in our daily lives?
This colt is not only a symbol for us of the Gentiles, but also of our own ignorance concerning the mind of God, and how the Lord carefully prepares all things in our life for our salvation, but does not explain to us in intimate detail the reasons for each thing.
Why does the Lord tarry when we ask of Him something? Why does a loved one suffer? Why (on a local and current note), is it so difficult to build a new church for His glory? For every circumstance in our lives, good and bad, we should merely say: "The Lord hath "need" of (it)", that is, in some way, the providence of God is leading us to better things, although we cannot understand how.
How powerful even the simple words of scripture are! Let us remember the next time that we are perplexed, or disheartened (and it will be today), that we cannot know why the Lord has need of the colt, only that it is part of a careful plan for our salvation.
