“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” Psalms 20:7
Most of us have seen the Ten Commandments and Ben Hur and the sheer awesome power of horses as they pulled carriages in games and in battle. I have always been in awe of horses ever since I was a young child. We would go to my uncle’s farm and he had a horse named Nancy. She was really impressive at least as a kid I thought she was and she gave me a love for horses. In biblical times horses were depended on by nations to lead them into battle. Here in Psalm 20 David uses chariots and horses as as an example not something to put one’s hope and trust in.
“Part of the reason David refused to trust in chariots and horses was because God had commanded it in the Law of Moses that the Kings of Israel would not multiply horses for themselves, either for use in cavalry or to pull war-chariots (Deuteronomy 17:16). But,' say the Israelites, "we neither have chariots and horses to trust to nor do we want them, nor, if we had them, would we build our hopes of success upon that; but we will remember, and rely upon, the name of the Lord our God, upon the relation we stand in to him as the Lord our God and the knowledge we have of him by his name. Note, those who make God and his name their praise may make God and his name their trust. David drew a strong contrast. "They trust in those things, but our trust is in God." Matthew Henry
What am I depending on for my strength to get me through trials and battles of life? Where do I ultimately place my trust or more importantly in whom do I place my trust? Where lies my security?
