“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”
Psalms 20:7 ESV
A sure sign of strength and might were found in the number of horses and chariots owned by a country. People were apt to trust their future to a military strength or the power of a government. David, although a military man himself, says these powerful words: “don’t trust in military or government…trust in God!”
When insecurity creeps in, we can be tempted to look to systems or powers that exude strength and might. We may seek some sense of peace and comfort in having a strong military presence. There’s nothing wrong with military or government as a whole but our trust cannot be in these above God. God has complete and absolute power and nothing is greater or stronger than He. David’s encouragement to us is to solely trust in God’s power and governing. The security of our future is found in Christ, and He is always fighting for us.
When things get tough for you, where do you place your hope and security?
Do you believe God is fighting for you?
How easily is your trust in God shaken?
