Remember the Name of the Lord our God in all Things! –The world is fast advancing with dependence on money and the multiplicity of what and who it can buy. Money is good, no doubt, but rather what I want to ask, “where do you place your confidence as in what can save you in all situations”? Remember the Name of the Lord our God in all Things!
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.– Psalms 20:7
The Christian(we) will surely remember the name of the LORD our God as the only one in whom we place our confidence, no foreign god nor worldly possessions to take His sovereign place in our lives. Are you a Christian? Are you amongst the “some” being referred to in the passage? Where lies your trust, your confidence? Who is your Saviour?
In this age, horses and chariots may not mean much, but surely you know what means much in your space, geography and time. What does your pride lie in to replace the Sovereign God? Do you pride in the money sitting in your bank? Is your pride the fleet of vehicles or the latest technology you are privileged to be amongst the few persons on earth to have? Is it the business you have or the fact that you are beautiful or handsome?
“The best-equipped army cannot save a king,
nor is great strength enough to save a warrior.
Don’t count on your warhorse to give you victory—
for all its strength, it cannot save you.
But the Lord watches over those who fear him,
those who rely on his unfailing love.
He rescues them from death
and keeps them alive in times of famine.” – Psalms 33:16-19
All these are vanity as compared to what the LORD God offers. I do not know what your present age and circumstance “HORSE” is but here is a word of WARNING to you this day;
The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord. – Proverbs 21:31
There are things pushing you to the limit, tempting you to fall, Do not give in! Sin infested solutions keeps crouching at the door whiles you are the most difficult times of your life and to you all seems not to be in your favour, remember the LORD your God in these times. Just as in the days of the Israelites when Assyria attacked Judah, the LORD God had everything under control for them. – 2 Chronicles 32:6-7. The LORD surely has everything under control, just give Him access and do not depend on your “Horse”. Be Strong and Courageous! Trust GOD! Remember the Name of the Lord our God in all Things!
God is not limited in what HE can or cannot do, it is you who places Him in the small box out of your thoughts and little mindedness. He is GOD, the Father, The Creator, The Master, the Giver of Life and Owner of All and Everything, Fix your mind right and if you are still in doubt try holding your breathe, die and see if you can bring yourself back to life. Remember the Name of the Lord our God in all Things!
Thank you for your mighty Hand upon my life all these years, I am sorry for giving you little credit as to the things you can do and cannot do. Teach me how to rely solely on you. Let your presence and wisdom guide my every decision from this day. Amen.
