The Mule and The Horse

The Mule and The Horse..

Psalms 32:8-9 warns us not to be like the horse or the mule. The horse has to be pulled back with a bridle or it will run off on its own. The mule tends not to move forward without a great tug from its master. Both animals obey only because they’re bridled and are forced to comply.

Believers often show this same behavior. There are those who jump ahead of God and have to be reined in like the headstrong horse. Then there are those believers who hear God’s call but refuse to listen and drag behind like the stubborn mule. Their obedience does not come willingly from the heart.

God wants you to obey Him because you want to; not because you have to. Doing what’s right needs to come from a desire to please Him. Do you want to truly walk in the will of God? Then listen and obey with a willing heart.

A walk that strives to please God will lead to knowing God more, loving Him more, being with Him more, and being like Him more. Seek God, seek Him from the heart, walk after His heart. You can leave the bridle to the horse and the mule.

So that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, Colossians 1:10

Obey God with a joyful heart. Find God’s heart today and seek His will for you. Let Him lead you and guide you. Be mindful not to rush ahead but walk with Him side by side.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
