Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.

Psalm 20:7-8

Those who trust in anything other than the LORD will ultimately find themselves let down. Every object in which a person might place his or her trust will fail, save one….the LORD our God.

Chariots and horses were at one time a sign of a nations military might. The more you had, the stronger you were. Many nations found a certain level of security in amassing large armies. But here’s the problem….chariots can be destroyed….if not in battle…eventually by rust and decay. And horses get injured…or old…or worse yet….killed.

Now…I don’t know a lot of people running around these days in chariots and horses, but I do know countless people who trust in things and people that are destined to fail them. The LORD alone is absolutely trustworthy. He’s all-powerful. He never fails. He’ll never tire or die. Trust him!
