Psalm 32:8-9 NKJV

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will guide you with My eye. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you.

The psalmist David prophesies in the 8th and 9th verses of Psalm 32. Speaking on behalf of God, he says that the Lord will instruct, teach and guide us. In response, we should not be uncooperative like a horse or mule that must be forced to obey. He said these animals are like that because they have no understanding. That tells us that when we are stubborn it is due to a lack of understanding. In this case he is referring to spiritual understanding. If we understood who God was and how He cares for us, we would not hesitate to obey Him thoroughly, immediately and without having to be persuaded to do so. May God grant us understanding that we may become easy to instruct, teach and guide.
