The Way of the King


Cross palms


During my quiet time this morning I thought about Jesus and his prophecy fulfilling donkey ride into Jerusalem. I imagined myself in the crowd, straining to catch a glimpse of the King, hoping that he would notice me, praying he would hear my personal cry above the crowd's. If I was Jewish, I would be shouting..."Hoshana, Hoshana" a Hebrew word meaning please save or save now. It's a good word to shout.

In the still of the morning, alone in my living room, no crowds, no donkey, no dusty streets...just me and the King. My spirit is shouting...Hoshana!

He sees me
He hears me

Here is my response to His presence...

The Way of the King

Save now!
Save now!
I lay down before you
You don't walk over me
or around me
You walk over to me
Raising me
Freeing me
Saving me
For this is the way
of the King

He hears you…He sees you…and His love is a reach-down and pick you up type of love. I pray that you can know that in a deeper way today.
