“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”
What are the chariots and horses of our modern day life that our world trusts in more than God?
Here are some of the first things that come to my mind~ technology, financial security, higher education, physical ability, and the list goes on.
Trust is defined by Webster Dictionary in the following ways:
– an assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something
-confidence is placed in someone or something
-have hope is someone or something to follow through on promised results
Reading the definition of trust may have brought to mind some personal “chariots and horses”. The first step to trusting God is awareness of what we are trusting instead of Him. Then to begin the shift of where we put our trust we must acknowledge change is necessary to shift from “the object or person of trust” to the Lord.
Once we identify and acknowledge the need to change we have a choice to take action or not.
Let’s take action today. Start by personalizing this verse to help reinforce our trust in the Lord. Here are a few examples of mine:
- Some trust in the wisdom and skill of their surgeon and modern medicine, but I trust in the Lord to use these tools for His glory and victory in my life.
- Some trust in their own abilities and knowledge to guide them to victory each day but I trust in the name, power, wisdom, and love of the Lord to guide me to daily victory for him.
I’d like to encourage you to share your “trust in the Lord” statements in a comment below. I know it will encourage someone and reinforce our trust in the Lord.
