Three choices? The horse


Hello, all Royal Prayer Guards and those who join us!!

It is a great thing to know that God’s children are sensitive about the importance of prayer.

Sensitivity will cause us to perceive the true spirit and emotions of those around us and pray for them. By maintaining a rich vibrant prayer life, we will be less callous.

Sensitivity vs. Callousness
“Exercising my senses so I can perceive the true spirit and emotions of those around me.” *(IBLP)

Our great God lives in us and nothing is too hard for Him. (Jeremiah 32:27) Believe God for His greatness to be manifested in us to advance His kingdom. Click here.  More of God's Greatness!

Stay Spiritually Fit and Prevent Burnout!

This prayer focus is directed to those in Christ Jesus. The reason why is to stay spiritual fit and prevent burnout. A healthy believer will be an effective witness, fervent in prayer and so on.

Burnout can happen by either reminding people repeatedly or being reminded repeatedly.

The person who is reminded can get frustrated. (Drip, drip. drip or henpecked)

Those who are getting henpecked should ask the question why?

Every time a person is reminded about something repeatedly is experiencing the bit and bridle.

The term bit and bridle come from the following verse.

"Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will not keep with you." Psalms 32:9

As humans, we have three choices.

(1) Bridle only?

(2) Bit and bridle? (Bit cannot be on by itself)

(3) Neither bit nor bridle? (Super obedient people, ideal goal)

Our goal is in Psalm 32:8.

If we obey Psalm 32:8, verse nine will not be needed.

8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye."

9 Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you.” Psalms 32:8-9

Three suggestions for prayer:

(1) Make the decision to be instructed, taught and guided.

(2) Choose to be obedient without the bit and bridle.

(3) Thank God for understanding.
