As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”
They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, some people standing there asked, “What are you doing, untying that colt?” They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go. When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Mark 11:1-7
While listening to the book of Mark, Father revealed something which happens within the Body of Christ more often than we talk about or even realize. There are many of the Lord’s anointed who have not been able to operate and fully flow in the things of God because of mental, physical and spiritual ties which have been placed upon them by others.
In the above scripture passage the two disciples were given the directive to first untie, then loose and finally to bring the colt back to Jesus. In the event someone asked what they were doing, they were to simply reply; “The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.” The question that I am directed to pose to you on today is, How many times have you stood in the way of those whom the Lord had called aside for His use? The colt which was needed was actually going to be returned to its place of origination, but only after Jesus was able to sit upon him. Jesus knew in advance that there would be some people in close proximity to the colt that would be unaware of his true purpose so He had to prepare the disciples with a response to use as they needed.
How many of you know that when we seek to humble ourselves and then untie and loose our brothers and sisters to the Lord, that the anointing placed upon their very lives by the Holy Spirit will someday come back to bless us? By allowing others to be free in Jesus we are loosing them from our own personal expectations of who we think they are.
The colt up until the time he was used by the Lord, had not done much other than stand outside tied to a post. Now pause for a moment and ask yourself how many people connected to you have been left hanging in limbo because you still have them standing outside tied up to a mental, physical or spiritual post? Thanks be unto God for His longsuffering towards us because He is now extending His mercy and grace by giving us and those held hostage by our thoughts a way of escape.
Know that in this you are not alone because as the first partaker of this revelation, I had to immediately reflect to see if there was anyone whom I had been holding back from the Lord’s use. And when the Holy Spirit brought several faces to mind; I quickly repented, prayed and then released each individual into the Lord’s care so they could fully be used for God’s glory and honor. Now that you have taken the time to read this word, I pray that your heart has been receptive to hearing the Father’s heart on this issue within the Body of Christ. My prayer for you is that you continue to hear the Father’s voice and obey Him by releasing anyone including those who are family or friends into His total and complete care. May you also be strengthened and restored in the Lord as you go through this release process.

Prayer of Salvation
I repent of all of my sins and right now I do confess that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for the remission of my sins. I believe that Jesus died and was buried and rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven. I receive Him now as Lord of my life and I now commit to serve him for the rest of my days.
It’s in Jesus’ name I do pray, Amen.
