Proverbs 21

The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
but victory rests with the Lord.

Proverbs 21:31

Recently my daughter started taking horse riding lessons. She’s learning a lot and so am I. Horses can be stubborn. They want to be the boss in any situation. If the rider has not gotten confidence in handling the horse, the horse will know it and control the rider.

These horses are not battle horses, but the horses referenced in this passage would have been put through rigorous training to not only listen to their rider’s directions, but also not fear the noises of battle.

The verse reassures us that even through all this battle training, the victory rests in the Lord. You can train and prepare a horse (or a rider) as much as you want, but the victory belongs to God.
