Leave Them Behind-2
Genesis 22:4 “Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.”
Genesis 22:5 “And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you.”
Mark 5:40 “And they laughed him to scorn BUT WHEN HE HAD PUT THEM ALL OUT he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying”
Jesus went to raise this dead girl back to life. He wanted God to intervene in the matter, but he also knew that not everybody matters at the place of miracle.
At the place of miracle or destiny, we have different kinds of people. We have faith boosters, destiny helpers, miracle and vision killers; we have doubters as well as distractors.
Jesus knew his crowd as well as his assignment, so he picked the people relevant to the fulfilment of the vision.
Jesus dropped the mockers, doubters and scorners, but picked the faith boosters and those who understood what he wanted to do and were ready to stand with him.
Abraham also knew this for a fact. He dropped his young men and the ass. If these guys had followed him, they would have definitely prevented him from carrying out the sacrifice.
They would have said, “Our Master has gone mad. How can he wait for twenty five years for a child and now slaughter him when he has several sheep, cows and other animals for sacrifice at home.” They might even have suggested to him to use the ass instead. These guys would have negated his faith and truncated his mission.
The ass was also dropped. What does the ass represent? The ass is a beast of burden and it is synonymous with load.
Beloved, it is high time you dropped every load that has been keeping you down. There are some loads that will never allow your miracle to materialize until you drop them. For example:
