Psalm 32:9 thumped me on the head this morning, Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. I should not be so stubborn about listening to God that He has to put a bit in my mouth and force me in the right direction. If I concentrate on building my relationship with Him, It will be much less painful and forced to go where God wants me to go. In the end, God’s plan is perfect; I just need to fight Him less on it.
