Some Trust in Horses

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.  Psalm 20:7

If the writer of this Psalm read the headlines and wrote this today, he would have wrote; some trust in politicians, some trust in science, some trust in social media, while others trust in money, but we trust in the name in the name of the Lord our God.

Trust is a critical in life.  Trust removes fear, establishes confidence, supports security, and provides a foundation for hope.  And if there is something we all need a little more of these days, it’s hope!

Some say, how can I trust in a God I can’t see!?!  How can I trust in a God Who lets so much bad happen in the world!?! If He is God, why doesn’t He do something!?! 

Those are big questions.  Those are tough questions.  Many times, in response to such questions, I simply choose to trust in God.  When fear is creeping at my door, I simply say, “Lord, I love you and I trust you.”

I do this for 2 reasons.  First, He is trustworthy.  He has never lied.  He always keeps His promise.  Second, and more importantly, He made me, and He loves me.  He loves me so much, He loves you so much, He sent is only Son, Jesus, to take on human flesh, to become God in the flesh… God with us!  Then Jesus brought transformational teaching to the world, and He did the unimaginable.  He died for our sin!  If that is not enough, God raised Jesus from the dead, so that if we believe in Him, He will live in us, and we will live forever with Him!  Yes, the Lord our God is worthy of our trust. 

With regards to our current headlines and idea of trust, if there was a poll question, “who do you trust, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, or Jesus of Nazareth?”  I choose Jesus of Nazareth every time!

Who do you trust?  Where do you find yourself today?  Where is your trust?  Are you among the some or are you counted with the we?  Stop trusting in Horses.  Put your trust in the Lord our God!
