Is The Horse Pushing Or Pulling? 

JULY 24 & 25, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Proverbs 24:27Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    My dad had another way of saying what verse 27 says. He would say, “Don’t get your cart before your horse.” In other words, do things in order. I guess a horse could push a cart, but not too fast, not too far, and not very often. In life, we often want to get ahead of ourselves. Before we have taken the time to get ourselves well equipped for something, grounded with knowledge and truth, we run off half-prepared. We at times can still do it, just as a horse can push a cart, but it is harder than it was meant to be.

     This happens at times in churches with new Christians who want to help. Because churches need helpers, these young believers are often allowed to fill positions they are not prepared for. This also occurs in business, when people dream today, but do not envision the hurdles of tomorrow. It happens in marriages as well. A man who is unstable in his morals, manners, money, and with his Maker wants to lead a home. However, he has not prepared himself to stand on his own two feet before he takes on the responsibility of building a home.

     I am not trying to say we need to have all the answers to all of life’s questions before we do anything. If that were true, no one would be doing anything. However, we need to have the important issues of life covered. Such as…
• Who is the real leader in your life?
• Where do you go for direction, especially when things seem to get out of whack?
• How are decisions made?
• What or who is the final authority?
• Or, when I make a mistake, where do I need to go to fix it?
• Then finally, if someone asked me these questions, can I show them where to find the answers in writing?

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    The answers to all the questions above are, “God and His Word.” God is the final authority in everything. He has written the answers to life in the Bible. Now it is up to us to study to show ourselves approved unto Him.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
