The Lord Challenges Job

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

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.

I have not seen the movie yet, but have heard that it is a wonderful one. Glad you got to go and see it. Have a wonderful weekend.

Lisa, I loved this movie too. I thought it was interesting to watch the video bonuses and learn that when Secretariat died, they did an autopsy and discovered his heart was anatomically twice the size of a normal racehorse. Have a wonderful weekend.

We loved that movie and I was so inspired!!!! There was so much that God spoke to me through that movie...and this scripture just speaks so loudly this morning...Oh, God is good!
I am going to buy a copy of that movie for future inspiration.

Hi Lisa,

I actually own a copy of this movie, yet I confess, I haven't watched it. I remember watching a recent video of Secretariat and I was moved by the majestic beauty of this race horse.

Thank you for sharing this scripture and your impressions of the movie.

Blessings and peace.
