“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.” (Psalms 20:7-8, NIV)

As I was reading, this passage caught my attention. If I were to put it in modern day terms it would go something like this. “Some trust in the banker, doctor, employer, friend, etc., but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. All of these things will eventually fall, but we who put our trust in God will rise up and stand firm.”

Our natural minds tend to lean towards natural means of provision. I’m not saying any of these are wrong. We all need bankers, doctors, employers, and friends. My point is, don’t put your trust in those things or people. Put your trust in God, allow him to use these natural resources in a supernatural way. Things of the natural eventually fade away but God will always remain.

I believe we are coming into a day where more trust in God will be required of us and the greater we trust, the greater the provision will be. If you haven’t noticed, there has been a theme this week. Faith, belief, and trust. They all work together and cause the supernatural to take place in our lives.

Evaluate your life today and ask yourself, “Where is my trust?”
