Positive Daily Inspiration – April 10, 2022 - PALM SUNDAY

“And many spread their garments on the road, and others cut down palms from the trees and spread them on the road. Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:

“Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
Mark 11:8, 9, 10

Palm Sunday is an important day in Christianity, and it’s important for us to look at for the lessons it contains.

Palm Sunday is the day that Jesus made his triumphant entry into Jerusalem on the back of an unridden donkey. People along the way waved palm branches in welcome shouting “Hosanna – blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord”. They laid those palm branches as a sort of “red carpet” for his animal to walk on. Our desire to follow Jesus must contain more than following the physical man of Jesus Christ. We must honor him by living his teachings in our own daily lives.

What teachings does Palm Sunday contain for us? Jesus taught by example on Palm Sunday.

First – Riding a donkey into Jerusalem instead of a magnificent white horse, or golden chariot, shows confidence. This was confidence beyond human confidence. He rode the path in humility. There was no self-need to build himself up through an outer show of flash or force. He was confident because he was one with God. There is no greater confidence than oneness with God. No matter what you face in life, if you are one with God, you can face it without a need to prove yourself to others, or uplift yourself through outer things. You do not need outer proof because inside of you is the unshakable, unbreakable, undeniable confidence in an unfailing God.

Second – A miracle happened that day when Jesus successfully sat on the unridden donkey and, third, that he could guide and ride on that unridden donkey through shouting crowds, pressing-in crowds, and crowds waving palm branches. If you want to startle and spook an untamed animal this would be a classic way to do this.

This clearly shows the power of the Christ over a lower animal nature that would ordinarily buck, and try to throw off its rider. in fear

We follow Jesus by allowing the Christ in us to ride over our own lower animal natures. The Christ within us can tame and bring peace to our wildest lower animal natures. Christ power can override, and successfully ride, that lower self through any harmful environment or negative peer group pressures that, before, would have swayed us back to a way of life that the lower self wallows in.

Do you have a bad habit that needs to be overridden? Then allow the Christ within you to override it. The Christ will successfully ride and tame addictions of the lower animal self to alcohol or drugs. The Christ will ride and tame angers or unforgiveness. No matter how the lower self in you defines itself, the Christ within you can override and tame its destructive ways.

No matter where you go, the Christ power goes with you, protecting you from future temptations. You will be blessed inside of yourself and by people all around you because you come in the name (which means nature) of the Lord.

I bless you on this Palm Sunday in the hope that you will follow Jesus in this way.



Dear God, I thank You for being with me at all times.
Hold me close today, this moment, tomorrow, and in the days to come, loving Presence of God.

Be with me through the night hours and be with me through the day.
Hold Thou my hand.
Guide Thou my feet.
Comfort Thou my heart.
I trust my future in Your care.

In Jesus Christ’s name, Amen

POSITIVE DAILY QUOTE: “It may well be that the world is denied miracle after miracle and triumph after triumph because we will not bring to Christ what we have and what we are. If, just as we are, we would lay ourselves on the altar of service of Jesus Christ, there is no saying what Christ could do with us and through us.” William Barclay
