Conquerors through God


Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
  but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
— Psalm 20:7

Trust in chariots and horses symbolized putting trust in the earthly thing. Some people put their trust in fame; some people are after wealth and some urge for love. The truth is, none of these is eternal. When we build our foundation on these temporal objects, we have to live in fears and worries as they may disappear at any moment.

In 2 Kings, Elisha’s servant panicked when an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. 

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered.​ And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

When you put your trust in the Lord, knowing that our God reigns, you will not be terrified because you know he has won the battle.

Putting our trust in the Lord does not mean we can slack off in our work. At the same time, working hard does not mean we are not trusting the Lord. It’s all about our heart. While we do our best, complete our duties, we step down the throne in our heart and let God take over. As he is the beginning and the end, he is the same yesterday, today and forever. Putting our trust in the eternal God is our best bet!
