Proverbs of 39 yr old man
I see a race horse right off the bat struggling to keep pace. Yes, from the start not hearing the gun go off sharply and not paying attention to its rider. Feeling the pressure of the crowd becoming disoriented from the task at hand. While mud is being thrown at its face from other prideful and daring horses. The horse has to regroup itself. Get its thinking focused back to the rider remembering all its training. The goal is to win the race for its rider. So it takes a new grip with its tired legs and strengthens its weak knees. It hears the rider's call to cut through and make smooth straight paths for your feet. So that the leg which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather may be healed. It stirs up righteous passion in the wild horse as it remembers the carrot laid before him. Oh that tasty treat that tastes so good in its entirety at the finish line. Amazing how the gift of faith within renews passion and power to live the Christian life. Spectators and commentators from the sidelines were booing you and kicking you will you were down and out in last place. Saying, "If racing against mere men makes you tired, how will you race against horses? If you stumble and fall on open ground, what will you do in the thickets near the Jordan? The Rider knows his horse and has prepared it for adversity. It comes at any time and at any moment, you have to be ready to hear the voice of your Rider. No horse is greater than its rider. The Rider hones down his horse and trains it for the day of adversity. And so does the race of life keep going for the believer in Christ. You got hit in the mouth right off the bat, and you stumbled at the gate. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hear Jesus say, "Today is a new day for the races! His mercy and goodness renew everyday." Now stand up straight! Stop your knees from shaking. Move forward in faith and don't fret in fear. We are certainly not those who are held back by fear and perish; we are among those who have faith and experience true life! Wow Look! At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both horse and rider lie stunned. The enemy, the crowd are stunned by the comeback kid, the reborn life of the believer. Oh child of God see the vision Jesus has for you at the Victory Circle: Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. But You, O LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts my head.
