Once you believe the signs are everywhere

God knows what works for you and it's the results that matter. If something makes you think it's a sign from Him, He's happy that you're thinking of Him.”

We share the Earth with millions of different creatures. Before the fall of man-kind God said to all the animals of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground, everything that has the breath of life in it, He gives every green plant for food.” Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons, and the dove, the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration. But His people do not know the requirements of their Father who is in Heaven. Consider the ravens, they do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn, yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. Go to the ant, and consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you, or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Almighty has done this?  In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

Horses and Sheep in scripture

Horses were such a symbol of army strength in Bible times that God charged the Israelite kings not to keep many horses. The Lord did not want the Israelites to trust in their resources of strength, but He wanted them to rely on Himself for deliverance and victory from their enemies.

The prominence of sheep in the Bible symbolically refer to God's people. The very first shepherd was Abel. What Jesus said about sheep? When he comes home, he calls together his friends, his family and his neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' I tell you that even so there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents, than over ninety-nine righteous people who need no repentance."
