Verse of the day
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
Our verse of the day may not be any of our readers “favorite life verse, ” but it speaks loud and clear to me after we discussed it in my Christian Ministries class. When David wrote the psalm, it was not a time of Corvettes and Harley Davidson’s, but of chariots and horses which were prized possessions and many trusted in them to save their lives while at war. People who don’t trust in the Lord today place their trust in the things that you can’t take with you when you leave earth. But we who hold onto the Lord can take our faith!
When all around me people were beginning to climb out of the pits of the recession, God didn’t allow that to happen to me right away, and there were times I questioned Him. As I look back now, it was a lesson I had to learn. My large home and tropical pool were useless to me if I wasn’t trusting In God. Today He has molded me into a very different woman who trusts Him and no one and nothing else. It’s the happiest time of my life, even though I now drive an older car and live in a small place. I’m content.
David knew that trusting in the name of the Lord was where his real trust should lie as it should be for us. He said in verse eight that “They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.” I want to share the scripture surrounding verse 7 with you because it’s so beautiful the way David stands firm in his faith.
6 Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with the saving might of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand upright.
9 O Lord, save the king!
May he answer us when we call.
