READ: Psalm 20: 7,8
Trusting in chariots (man’s ingenuity), or putting your confidence in horses (God’s resources) can have devastating results.
But when a follower of Jesus Christ meditates on what God has done, and on what He says He will do, then the enemy will do exactly what the Scripture dictates: he will be brought down and will fall! When you trust in God’s Word, you unleash a faith that sets in motion the resources of heaven.
And when the power of God is unleashed on your behalf, the powers of hell cannot stand.
Yes, God wants you to use the gifts and talents that He has given you. He wants you to use the natural resources He’s created. He wants you to use your mind. Just remember where it all comes from. The bottom line, depending upon Him instead of ‘chariots’ or ‘horses’ is an issue of trust. Where’s your trust?
When David stood before Goliath, he wasn’t trusting in his skill, his slingshot, or in Saul’s armor. Instead, he reached into his mind and recounted how God delivered him from the lion and the bear. As David remembered the Lord, his faith in God’s promises grew. And we all know the outcome: God delivered him!
What about you? Who ya gonna trust?
