“God gives peace, and he raised our Lord Jesus Christ from death. Now Jesus is like a Great Shepherd whose blood was used to make God's eternal agreement with his flock. I pray that God will make you ready to obey him and that you will always be eager to do right. May Jesus help you do what pleases God. To Jesus Christ be glory forever and ever! Amen.”
Hebrews 13: 20 - 21
My neighbors are Amish, and they drive horses not cars. A good horse is one that not only knows how to pull with all his strength, but it is one that is ready to obey at the slightest pull on the reins. Unless you are watching very carefully, you will not see the command of the driver. When the horse receives the instruction, whether it is turn right, turn left, speed up, slow down or stop he responds immediately and without question! If a horse does not do that he will not be long for this world!
As a follower of Jesus, are you ready to obey the will of Jesus? Do you look for and listen for His pull on the reins of your heart? And when you feel it, do you respond immediately or do you question the will of God for this moment?
The essence of living a successful Christian life on planet earth is being ready to obey every desire of the Father and being eager to do right in every situation of life.
“Thank You Jesus for allowing me to feel Your pull on the reins of my heart. And may I be ready to obey Your every wish for my life. Praise Your Name forever. Amen.”
