“And He sent Peter and John, saying, ‘Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat.’ So they said to Him, ‘Where do You want us to prepare?'” – Luke 22:8-9
After they asked this question Jesus gave them specific instructions. When they left and did what they were told, they found it was exactly as Jesus had said. This is the same thing that happened before His triumphal entry described to us in Matthew chapter 21. Jesus did the same thing in that chapter. He sent two disciples ahead with instructions. They asked a question and He gave them specific instructions to follow. As they followed them, they found it to be exactly as He said. That is interesting, is it not? I believe Jesus is trying to teach them something. I believe He is trying to teach us something here too. Think about it for a moment!
Do you ever sense a tug on your heart and you think it may be Jesus speaking to you? Maybe He is trying to give you instructions about the direction you should be going? Do you find yourself listening to that or do you just brush it off and think, “no, that is just me thinking crazy thoughts?” Unfortunately, many of us do that and way too often and the conversation just ends there.
The disciples heard Jesus’ instructions and they did not end the conversation there. They responded! Also, they did not turn to Jesus and tell Him what they wanted, they turned and asked Him what He wanted from them. And look at what happened as a result. What Jesus said came true!
Today, what is Jesus speaking to you? Is it a move He wants you to make? Is it something He wants you to give up or start doing? Is it Him telling you to accept Him into your life if you have not done it already? What is it for you? Will you leave the conversation there or will you turn towards Him, give Him your plans and ask Him what He wants? Ask Him today…He will answer! The question then becomes…will you listen and do?
“But you shall seek the place where the Lord your God chooses out of all your tribes to put His name for His dwelling place; and there you shall go.” – Deuteronomy 12:5
