“He is not impressed by the strength of a horse; He does not value the power of a man. The Lord values those who fear Him, those who put their hope in His faithful love.”

Psalms 147:10-11 HCSB

Powerful, brawny creatures, horses are able to carry up to three times their own weight. Sometimes we get to feeling like we are supposed to carry three times our own weight in burdens. The world around us tells us to “cowboy up!”

God is not impressed by our pull-ourselves-up-by-our-bootstraps mentality. He desires pure, submissive hearts bowed in humility before Him, ready to follow where He leads, leaning into His strength. When we share a yoke with Jesus, He does the heavy lifting. 🚦
