Summary: No matter one's situation God is aware.

Thank you Rev. Mark Edge

He Knows Who & Where You Are

Mar 11:1 ¶ And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,

Mar 11:2 And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring [him].

Mar 11:3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.

Mar 11:4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

Mar 11:5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?

Mar 11:6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.

Mar 11:7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.

Mar 11:8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed [them] in the way.

Mar 11:9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

I. What would be on your mind if you knew you were going to die within a week?

Spend as much time with those you love most

Settle any disputes with whomever you were at odds with

Pay any debts that you owed

Take care of unfinished business

Eat your favorite foods

See or do something you'd always wanted to see/do

There would be little time for sleep

There would be little time for trivial pursuits

There would be no time for the insignificant details of life

A. Most of us don't get that opportunity-most of us don't get a forewarning that our lives will come to end within a week

But Jesus did

This passage was the beginning of the last week of His life

As God, in His foreknowledgem He knew exactly what was going to happen in the next several days

There would be a triumphant entry

There would be a Passover meal

There would be a betrayal, a denial, a mock trial, a beating, imprisonment, excrutiating pain, humiliation, crucifixion, death

The most important event in all of human history was about to take place-the salvation of mankind

He who knew no sin would become sin for us

His time was limited-He had lots to do-He had to make sure these disciples were prepared to carry on the work He had begun

Can you imagine what was on His mind?

So many details, so many decisions, so many things to consider!

And yet - he says to his disciples - "In the neighboring village there is a unbroken colt tied; untie him and bring him to me."

A seemingly insignificant, unimportant, irrelevant animal is on His mind---even its location, its condition and its purpose!

II. Can you imagine what is on God's mind today?

Time is running out-there is much to do-Jesus is preparing to return!

There are nations to prepare-there are prophecies to fulfill-the Antichrist is getting ready to emerge

There is a world to be saved-there are prayers to be answered-there is a Church to put in order

Can you imagine what is on God's mind right now?

So many details, so many decisions, so many things to consider!

And yet, although you may seem to be insignificant, unimportant, and irrelevant in the big scheme of things, God knows exactly who you are, where you are and what He wants to do with your life!

III. Trip to NYC

I felt very small and insignificant

Some of the most famous people live here

Some of the most powerful people-most wealthy-most influential

Surrounded by tens of millions-just a face in the crowd-a nobody

God said to me, "But I know who you are! I know you by name! Be encouraged, because you are significant to me, you're filled with my Spirit! You know who I am! You have a relationship with me! You know how to pray and worship and you know my Word!"

A feeling of worth and joy swept over me!

Folks, you may not be known to the world

You may not have your name in lights

Wall Street may not be aware you exist-Hollywood may not acknowledge you are alive-Washington DC may not recognize your name


He knows your name-He knows where you live-He knows how you're feeling right now-He knows what you're going through-Jesus knows what He wants to do with your life!
