Don’t Forget the Horses!

Finally, I looked up and saw four chariots coming from between two bronze mountains.  The first chariot was pulled by red horses, and the second by black horses;  the third chariot was pulled by white horses, and the fourth by spotted gray horses.

“Sir,” I asked the angel. “What do these stand for?”

Then he explained, “These are the four winds of heaven, and now they are going out, after presenting themselves to the Lord of all the earth. The chariot with black horses goes toward the north, the chariot with white horses goes toward the west, and the one with spotted horses goes toward the south.”

The horses came out eager to patrol the earth, and the angel told them, “Start patrolling the earth.”

When they had gone on their way, he shouted to me, “Those that have gone to the country in the north will do what the Lord's Spirit wants them to do there.”

Zechariah 6:1-8

When I was a child I learned that God works in the world through His servants!  Men are moved by God's Spirit to say and do the things that He wants said and done.  But wait!  Human beings are not the only tools God has hanging on the wall of His workshop.  God also uses angels, the forces of nature, droughts, floods, and don't forget horses to accomplish His purposes on earth along with anyone or anything else He chooses to use!

If God wants something done on earth, it will be done.  The only choice we, as His children have is whether or not we will allow Him to use us to accomplish it.  What a blessing it is to be held by the Hand of God to craft the Will of God in lives of other men and women. 

So there is no reason for human pride as we see the things that God has done through us.  But there are lots of reasons for rejoicing in Jesus as we see right before our eyes His work continue on earth up until the very Day He returns in Glory!

It is a spectacular sight to view the Power of the Holy Spirit convict and change men into the image of our Savior.  Watch for the return of Jesus, but also watch to see what He is accomplishing all around you every day! 

"Lord Jesus, thank You for allowing me to be one of the tools You use to do Your will on earth today.  May I see Your Glory in all that You do.  And may Your Name be praised forever. Amen."
