War horses are incredible creatures. They are big, powerful, and beautiful. And they are extensively trained.
I’ve had the pleasure of being #horse #crazy since I first laid eyes on one of God’s most beautiful creations. And I was always drawn to 3 day eventing.
It’s interesting that the sport was actually originally intended for testing warhorses. They are tested in suppleness, obedience, stamina, courage, and power.
But it’s deeper than that. Warhorses are specifically trained to ignore their natural #instincts. They run TOWARD loud noises instead of away; they lie perfectly still on the ground as #danger approaches; they jump hurdles at high speeds without knowing what’s on the other #side.
All because they #trust their rider.
We are the warhorses of the Lord in the spiritual battle that’s raging. He says stop, go, left, right, and does the fighting. All we have to do is #run with Him, and trust our Rider.
Easy, right? 😉 “They look like horses; they charge forward like warhorses. Look at them as they leap along the mountaintops. Listen to the noise they make-like the rumbling of chariots, like the roar of fire sweeping across a field of stubble, or like a mighty army moving into battle.”-Joel 2:4-5
I’m reminded of an old song: “They rush on the city, they run on the walls! Great is the army that carries out His word!” #allin #laiddownlover #forthegospel #spiritualwarfare #warriorbride
