Trusting: Even Where There Seems to Be No Way
"Some trust in chariots and some in horses but we trust in the name of the LORD our God." -Psalm 20:7
In the Old Testament, God commanded Israel's kings not to take a census. This seems an odd expectation for one who is charged with protecting a kingdom. Sending an army into battle - not knowing how many fighting men you have seems ludicrous. But, the reasoning behind the command will resonate with every one of us.
We are all soldiers in Gods army. Our aim: to trust God more.
Rather than rely on our own strength or in numbers that are sure to impress- we are called to believe that God is intimately involved in the protection of His people; that He is concerned with those of us who bear His name.
This is precisely where the testing comes, and our beliefs are refined through the fire. We are called to trust in the LORD with all of our hearts, and not rely on personal strength or earthly wisdom. If we acknowledge him in everything we do - he will make a way for us; even where there seems to be no way!
Prayer: Oh, LORD! Thank you that you care so deeply for each and every one of us! In Exodus, we are reminded to be still - and You will fight for us! To truly grasp these words- would change our lives forever. LORD, help us in our unbelief!
