Chariots and horses

Posted: November 8, 2014 in Chariots and horses
Psalm 20 “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our GOD.”

What a certain and comfortable resting place… for those who trust fully in the Lord of heaven and earth, are never put to shame, or disappointed. He exalts all those who put him first and humbly obey his commands, no matter how painful the outworking of them might be. He seems an unreasonable LORD, who wants all our heart, soul, mind and body, so that he will make us into the people he wants us to be, and who are eternally happy in his blessed service.  When we give him our all, he takes our sins and changes us into Saints… we find him to be sufficient for everything and gives us the strength to keep trusting and obey. The gracious Holy Spirit will guide us continually and give us all the graces we need to be over-comers.

There are many who do not trust in him, but rely on the puny offerings of this life – money, respect, acclaim, praise and recognition – but these all monumentally fail, and take our selves and destroy us.

Money is never enough; respect depends on our ability to please; acclaim last only for the moment we get it; praise is empty and insincere; recognition focuses only on our weaknesses and mistakes, that others use against us and sully their own souls…

Power is only to found at the feet of the man from Galilee, who bore away our sorrows and sins, and ever lives to save us from all ills and bring us safely into his family at home in Heaven…

Which do you want..?
