TOPIC: Trusting God
TEXT: Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: Psalm 20
BIBLE IN A YEAR: Ezekiel 37–39, 2 Peter 2
I needed two medications urgently. One was for my mom’s allergies and the other for my niece’s eczema. Their discomfort was worsening, but the medicines were no longer available in pharmacies. Desperate and helpless, I prayed repeatedly, Lord, please help them.
Weeks later, their conditions became manageable. God seemed to be saying: “There are times when I use medicines to heal. But medicines don’t have the final say; I do. Don’t place your trust in them, but in Me.”
In Psalm 20, King David took comfort in God’s trustworthiness. The Israelites had a powerful army, but they knew that their biggest strength came from “the name of the Lord” (v. 7). They placed their trust in God’s name—in who He is, His unchanging character, and unfailing promises. They held on to the truth that He who is sovereign and powerful over all situations would hear their prayers and deliver them from their enemies (v. 6).
While God may use the resources of this world to help us, ultimately, victory over our problems comes from Him. Whether He gives us a resolution or the grace to endure, we can trust that He’ll be to us all that He says He is. We don’t have to be overwhelmed by our troubles, but we can face them with His hope and peace.
REFLECT & PRAY:
In your personal battles, where or in what do you place your trust? How might trusting in God’s name change the way you cope with these challenges?
Heavenly Father, give me the courage to trust in You. Help me to believe that You’re all that You promise to be.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this prayer.
I come to you, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with you. I ask you to forgive me for all my sins. Wash Me Away from All Unrighteousness and Cleanse Me Clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in my heart that God raised me,
Thank you for saying that prayer. You are in Christ now. Old things have passed away. HALLELUYAH
