PSALM 20:7 – Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
Ecclesiastes states there is nothing new under the sun … it’s true you know. That’s why God’s Word works for all times, all situations, all people - because He spoke it to be an eternal word.
In Psalm 20 it refers to the items of the day that represented strength and the ability to overcome enemies at war – chariots and horses. Not something we see today … or do we?
We still have icons of strength in this modern world that we put our trust in … they just don’t happen to wear the same names …
This year we have an extra thrown in:
Finding the right candidate to trust to lead our country.
In turbulent times – who or what we will trust?
“We will remember the name of the Lord our God.”
Not the people who take His name on their lips … but we will remember and trust in the Lord our God. The only One who has ever saved any of us. One source of power, one source of strength, one source of trust.
God waits for those who will return humbly before Him and pray. It isn’t hard to see Him … anyone can do it. Psalm 19 initiates the vision and assures us that the glory of the Lord goes out into all the earth.
The heavens declare His glory.
The skies proclaim the work of His hand.
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
The law of the Lord is perfect.
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making simple people wise.
The statutes of the Lord are right and give joy to the heart.
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
Available to everyone, perfect, steady, equal education for all people, doing the right thing always, giving the people joy and vision, speaking truthfully … now that’s a Leader.
As for the elections … pray … do your best … but let’s not put our trust in the ballot box.
We will remember the name of the Lord our God.
