Footmen and Horses [podcast]


— “RUN, that ye may obtain” (1 Corinthians 9:24) – Learning to run the right way lest we waste our lives and be found wanting in the end. 

Why did the LORD ask this following question to His servant Jeremiah when Jeremiah had complained about the small afflictions he was suffering at the hands of rebellious people who claimed to be God’s people? – “If thou hast run with the FOOTMEN, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with HORSES? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5) In this podcast we are going to explore the answer to this question and how this applies to us.

It seems the LORD was saying to His servant, prophet Jeremiah: “In order for me to raise you upward to new heights in my will and work, you must first die downward and change, ammend your attitude.”

Like David, during a time of distress, Jeremiah sought the LORD by getting in His Word and was greatly refreshed and reestablished.

“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16

The answer to so many if not most of our problems in this life are solved and/or in the least soothed as we get lost in God’s Word. Personally I like to call the words of God on record in the Bible, His healing oil or the healing oil of Heaven!

No individual will be used of God further than he has allowed the Great Potter to mold and prepare him through a daily walk – the daily cross Jesus commanded (Luke 9:23-24). Greater battles lie just ahead and it’s only those true disciples who prepare themselves now – beginning today – who will be “prepared unto every good work” ahead (2 Timothy 2:21).

“IF (conditional) a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” 2 Timothy 2:21

Are you submitted to the LORD today? If so, He is making you to be “a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”

Are you being “prepared” of the LORD today?

For the moment, we live “in the land of peace” and yet great judgments and trials are coming on this sinful land. Those who are “at ease in Zion,” refusing to truly lay down their lives, will be destroyed in the season that lies ahead. Read Amos 6 and Revelation 3:14-21.

“And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” Joshua 3:5

It’s only as we “sanctify” ourselves today that “to morrow the LORD will do wonders” in and through our lives.

Prayerfully read Ephesians 4 for all it’s worth to learn of the LORD’s plan to mature His blessed body.

“Love Footmen and Horses brother!  Good news!  Love in Christ.” Dar

“A really interesting thing happened this a.m.. I had opened my tablet to go to a certain site, and as I was navigating to it “Footmen and Horses” popped up on the screen from the sgys site!! So, of course I had to read it. What a blessing! God is good. May the Lord bless you today in extra special and meaningful ways today. ?” Debbie Lord
