Ps. 20:7 “Some trust in chariots, and some trust in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.”
This Psalms 20:7 is declaration of God’s help that the Israelites usually chants until it goes into their sub-consciousness whenever the nation goes into war with another nation. It can also be as a source of reminder to everyone about what God’s Name is to them especially for their King because at the time of this Psalms, there were lots of gods like Baal, Ashtaroth and many other gods people run to in their time of trouble especially unbelievers and some hypocritical believers also do so. Just in our time today, people do not want to have faith in the Name of God, rather they run after handkerchiefs, oil, anointing water, and many other elements offer to them by church bandits.
Now, let us go back to the Israelites, Yes, horses are strong animals in war; Yes, chariots are stronger in battle, But they are fallible because they are flesh. In a time of war/trouble, we need a help that cannot fail or be defeated. Horses can fail, and chariots can be destroyed.
How will it look if we apply the context in today’s culture? In the midst of different distractions in our world. In the midst of end-time dramas, troubles, aggressions, and many other negative vibes around us. What then can stand the test of time? because horses and chariots are physically limited, Let our declaration of choice be put in the unseen power of the Almighty God.
We all say we trust in God, don’t we? But is God the One we run to each time we have nuts to crack? What do we declare before bedtime? What do we declare to start our day? What do we declare before or in the middle of something?
God wants us to make declarations as Job 22:28 says “You will declare a thing, and it shall be established for you; And light shall shine on your path.” May the Light of God continue to shine in our ways in Jesus’ Mighty Name.
Then and then alone the scripture like Isaiah 26:3 will be fulfilled in our lives.
As we started a new month today, do your declarations and believe in the Word.
God Bless You All.
