Helps for Trusting God III

 

 

The Verse:  

“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” – Psalm 20:7  

The Story:  

The summer of 2014 was stressful, hard, amazing, but above all, a great time to trust God. I graduated from Liberty in May, and I was getting married in August. In the time between graduation and the wedding, I searched high and low for a job. I can honestly say I exhausted every option possible. As the time of the wedding was approaching, my wife and I were both jobless. “How will we make it?” we asked each other.  

We trusted God would provide.  

No, we did not have jobs by the time we were married. In fact, it took until my wife being hired in October for one of us to be employed, and then I followed suit in November. That was an amazing trial in both of our lives, and we came to a point where we literally had nothing else to trust in besides God. He was all we had, but He proved to us that He was more than enough.  

The Application:  

The verse at the top of this post is Psalm 20:7, and I think it is a great reminder for us that God is the ONLY one worthy of our trust.  

We can take the words “chariots” and “horses” and substitute it with our own experiences. For me, that verse could read: “Some trust in jobs and some in money, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.”  

How would you fill in the blanks below?  What or who are you trusting in today?  See comments below.

“Some trust in ________ and some in ______, but we trust in the _______.”
