The prayer of this study is that it will help you draw closer to Jesus Christ, to fully enjoy a relationship with Him.
I am more than delighted to respond to personal questions, challenges and criticisms. To God be the Glory, let's grow together. This has a few chapters but to get you started, I will only include one. BUILD a great relationship with Jesus and the rest of life will fall into place.
The will is the key to training the soul and the key to training the horse. Without the will engaged--without ‘want to’--no progress is possible. A willingness to ’be trained’ is the first necessity--in horse and man.
Horses do not see a need for training. Some horses crave the company of people--but that is not a craving for discipline and training. Human owners recognize a need for training and bring horses to a trainer. The first step in Horse Training is to build a desire in the horse’s heart. The horse needs to be willing to submit his power and potential to the will of the trainer.
The position of a horse’s head reveals much about their attitude. A high, swinging head proclaims power and rule from the horse’s perspective. A lowered head speaks of submission--a willingness to heed the commands of another. Motivating the horse to ‘give’ his head to the trainer takes wisdom and time. God is a wise and patient trainer of souls. He continually calls to us with love—leaving the response to us.
