Today’s reading: Psalms 20:7
Trusting chariots and horses
We read in Psalms 20:7:
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
During David’s time, a lot of kings, generals, and soldiers trust their chariots and horses. For them, the more chariots and horses they can bring in a battlefield, the more they are sure to win.
For thousands of years, things haven’t changed that much. We might have evolved into using sophisticated tools of war, but the issue is still the same. Today, people trust nuclear bombs, guns, jet fighters, and tanks. The more weapons that you have, the better.
The problem is that you can have all the most sophisticated and powerful weapons in the world, but if you forget God, all those things would come to nothing.
Of course, for most of us, we are not engaged in physical warfare. We don’t enlist in the army and engage in battle.
However, there’s a war that we are involved in, 24/7. That’s the spiritual warfare we all have to face every day.
In this battle, we don’t rely on human strength. We don’t rely on our willpower. We don’t rely on our own resolve.
We rely on God. Others may trust in “chariots and horses,” but we will remember the name of Yahweh our God. This means that we will overcome it with the help of the Almighty.
Our spiritual struggle will never be won by ourselves, but by trusting in God.
