Zechariah 9:9 (NIV)
9 Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Father your ancient promise became a glorious event on the streets of Jerusalem when Jesus rode in triumph and humility on a donkey. It was an unprecedented opportunity, unequalled in Jewish history, with unimagined consequences. Before them was their long awaited King and Savior. It was a time to rejoice, to dance, to celebrate with overflowing joy. And yet tragically it turned into the sorrow of the ages. The King rejected, the Savior denied, the day of salvation thwarted. How could such a day of triumph turn into such soul numbing grief?
But Father we know that through the failure and rejection of the human race you still achieve your sovereign purpose of salvation for all who will believe. Thus we have the greatest event in history, the resurrection of your Son Jesus the Messiah. In those fateful days all of the events were used in your divine will to fulfill your plan motivated by your great and eternal love.
Yes Father, we will rejoice because our King has come and he is coming again!
