God will not instruct me to do that which He will not also empower me to accomplish.

Matthew 21:1-3
“As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” 
God does not lack the resources to accomplish his plans. Though we may not see the resource presently, He does. He sent His disciples ahead to prepare, with instructions to boldly step into the resources he had prepared. If challenged they were to respond “the Lord needs this!” Their confidence came not from a greedy or self-centered motivation, but from the certainty that the Lord was coming, He had prepared the way for them, and now they were simply fulfilling their role in preparing the way for Him. 
The King is coming! One day Christ will return, and He has tasked me with preparing the way before Him-not only preparing for His return here on earth, but also preparing hearts for His arrival as the Savior. He has provided everything necessary for me to fulfill his instructions to me. I may not see every resource yet, but He has provided all that I need. He calls me to be bold in stepping forward–not for self-gain, but because “the Lord needs” all of the resources that He has instructed me to prepare for Him.
This week I choose to obey with confidence: not to timidly go donkey-shopping, but instead to boldly claim that which Christ has established and prepared in advance. 
God, thank you for the certainty of knowing that you will not instruct me to do that which you will not also empower me to accomplish. Give me wisdom to obey you boldly, so that your name would be proclaimed, and your kingdom established.
