How can I be a horse?

These are some verses that I have read in the past few days and they have really brought me some, much needed encouragement. The Lord is good and greatly to be praised!

Proverbs 16:3,9; 20:24; 21:30

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. ... In his heart a man plans his course but the Lord determines his steps. ... A mans steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand his own way? ... There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord. The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord."

Acts 29:13,18-20

"When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. ... Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, "Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God's sight to obey you rather than God. For we CANNOT HELP speaking about what we have seen and heard."
