"Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust,striking terror with his proud snorting?" Job 39:19-20

Chapters 38 through 41 of the Book of Job in the Holy Bible are full of questions - questions asked by God Almighty to Job. Chapter 38 starts with: The Lord spoke out of the storm and said, "Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me." Job 38:3

There are well over 70 questions across these chapters and not even one can be answered by any person - living or dead! Anybody who questions the existence of God should read these chapters; which without fail would give them the answer!

Today's Scripture makes us look at the horses from a new perspective - comparing it to the locusts! Horses leap the same as locusts, irrespective of their huge sizes. It comes so naturally for the horse to leap without fear. It is effortlessly strong.

However, King David writes in Psalm 33:17, A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. In Psalm 3:8 we read, From the LORD comes deliverance.

Prophet Isaiah goes a step further and writes: Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the LORD. Isaiah 31:1

Of course we all know the all too familiar statement by King Solomon in Proverbs 21:31, The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD.

Amen! Our victory rests with the Lord; not with the fearless leaping horses!

    Psalm 20:6-8
    New International Version (NIV)

    6 Now this I know:
    The LORD gives victory to his anointed.
    He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
    with the victorious power of his right hand.
    7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
    8 They are brought to their knees and fall,
    but we rise up and stand firm.
