Horses, one of God’s most magnificent creations, offer many insights into the nature of our Creator as well as our relationship to Him. This full-color, Christian devotional features a variety of stories, drawn from the author’s experiences with her horses and Sassy, a lovable but cantankerous mule. Other famous, and not-so-famous, horses help illustrate scriptural principles.
The truths of the Bible can be understood intellectually, but those truths are more fully absorbed through life experiences that shed additional light on them and drive them deeper into our hearts.
Jesus often used everyday objects or animals in His teaching, making the stories more memorable. I can’t think of a better equine illustration of the transformation described in 2 Corinthians 5:17 than a horse called Snowman.
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come!”
You’ll find Snowman’s story in chapter sixty-three.
In Matthew 7:14, Jesus made it clear that the path leading to eternal life is narrow, and there are few who find it. Following the Narrow Path’s 70 horse-themed devotions will provide encouragement for believers to find, and remain, on that path.
The book is suitable for twelve to adult or could be used as a read-aloud to younger, horse-crazy Christians.
Initially, I had planned to add journal pages to the book, but as the content grew, I realized it wouldn't work. You can interact with the devotional by using a notebook or journal. Add any thoughts, questions, or comments in the section below.
