If you have been reading the verses we have shared since Palm Sunday you realize it is not easy to figure out what happened on each particular day of the last week of Jesus’ ministry on earth. The events are strung together one after the other and it is sometimes difficult to tell where one day ends and the next begins. But, by the time we get to Wednesday, it is almost impossible to clearly identify the events of the day.
On Sunday the crowds cried
On Sunday Jesus rode into Jerusalem, not on the back of a powerful prancing white stallion, but on the embarrassingly humble and small back of a donkey. He came in to Jerusalem that day just as Zechariah promised almost 550 years earlier (Zechariah 9:9). That evening He returned to Bethany, probably to the home of Lazarus (John 12:1).
This is Holy Week, the week just prior to Easter or Resurrection Sunday. Many churches see this as a time to remember the suffering and death of Jesus through various traditions and worship services.
As a young believer a wise mentor told me “The enemy knows he can’t have your soul so he will do everything he can to keep you from doing what God has called you to do!” I’ve thought a lot about that over the years.
Your brother just cleared the beach. Hilarious!”
Fear unleashes a host of doubts. It chips away at our confidence in God’s goodness. If Jesus can sleep in the storms of the Sea of Galilee, is he asleep in our storms? Does He care? Our minds continue, “If God doesn’t care, then we must take control.” We become control freaks because we perceive a loss of control and somebody has to do something!
Are you living in fear? It’s easy to look at your circumstances and become overwhelmed with the challenges that appear impossible to handle. Daily determine who you’re going to look to, and walk with. Will it be the world’s solutions, or will you resolve to walk in the strength and power of God Almighty?

She was “awakened” out of her thoughts by her little girl’s cries “Mommy, mommy you are hurting me! Please mommy!” As her eyes came into focus she saw the little hands of both of her baby girls. They were bright red and misshapen from the tightness of her grip. The look in her little one’s eyes was all it took to confirm the fears she was bound by. She was going to make sure nothing “like that” would ever happen to them.
