Reins to My Heart
by PamFord Davis

"Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and will give you rest. This yoke is easy to bear, and this burden is light (Matthew 11:29-30 CEV)."

If I stoop under a heavy load, I am not in his assigned yoke. He desires to hold the guiding reins.

"I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons (Psalm 16:7 KJV/ The Pilgrim Study Bible-Commentary: "MY REINS. My innermost being; my heart and affections.")

Where do my affections lead?

"Lead me to your throne of mercy, O LORD."

Take over my reins.

"For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb (Psalm 139:13 KJV)."

From the womb-to-tomb, His hands hold the reins.

"I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works (Revelation 2:23b KJV)."

Forever and always, our God "reigns!"

"Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth (Revelation 19:6b KJV)."
