Have you given the horse its strength or clothed its neck with a flowing mane?
Did you give it ability to leap like a locust?
Its majestic snorting is terrifying!
It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength when it charges out to battle.
It laughs at fear and is unafraid. It does not run from the sword.
The arrows rattle against it and the spear and javelin flash.
It paws the ground fiercely and rushes forward into battle when the ram's horn blows.
It snorts at the sound of the horn.
It senses the battle in the distance.
It quivers at the captain's commands and the noise of battle.
Job 39:19-25 NLT
With all of our snow days I finally got to watch Secretariat. This scripture was quoted at the beginning and the end of the movie. It was so powerfully beautiful it gave me chills! If you haven't yet seen the movie (I may have been the last hold-out) it is a great family movie with wonderful life lessons in it.
Today I'm linking up with Charlotte and Ginger for Spiritual Sundays.
