Psalm 20 is a prayer that God would give the king victory in battle. In verse 7, we read, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.“
In the context of ancient battle, chariots and horses were invaluable assets. Think how much damage could be caused with a fleet of chariots. Yet the psalmist says, “They can have all that. We have God. If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Think of all the things that the world relies so heavily upon. Ultimately, none of it is reliable. None of it will last. Some trust in money and some in sex and some in power and some in psychology and some in careers and some in cars and some in [whatever], but we, sheep, trust in the name of the LORD our God.
