I have had horses and been around those who ride, been to many rodeos and watched bronc and bull riders ride and the one thing that is a common phrase around is JUST STAY CALM. No matter what happens on the ride you can not panic. The more you panic the worse the situation becomes.
I have sit in the stands watching those bull riders when they have gotten hung up and were being slammed around and having the fire beat out of them and have watched how they can remain calm and the one thing is they know is that the Bull Fighter has their back and is out there to rescue them and that he is on his way.
That is alot like our life, we are in for a ride in this life but when things go wrong and we get hung up and life is trying to beat the fire out of us THE LORD HIMSELF WILL FIGHT FOR YOU! JUST STAY CALM!!
Life can feel so unpredictable just like being on the back of a bucking bronc or bull. God is always predictable because
JESUS is the same yesterday, today and FOREVER! Hebrews 13:8
One thing we should always remember is survival mode is reactive; prayer is proactive. Remember when we start reacting to our situation we are just kicking into survival mode, but when we began to pray and allow God to come to our rescue we are being PROACTIVE!
So I challenge you to be PROACTIVE and STAY CALM!!!
