Topic: THE POWER OF TRUST
Bible Reading: Psalm 20:7
📖7….”Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” (NIV)
🔥Trust is one of the strongest tools given to man by God, to chart the course of his life with. Trust makes us to remain in the families into which we are born. Even though the roots of such families have become dried (Isaiah 53:2), we still keep standing by such families because we trust them. What makes a person born again, is the change of trust. Ruth, who trusted in Chemosh, the deity or god of the Moabites from birth, became born again when she changed her trust from Chemosh to the God of Israel in Ruth 1:16.
🔥🔥In as much as trust has boast hidden in it, it therefore has the tendency to affect our faith. Faith being a substance only if there is a hope in our inner man or heart, for it to be manifested, is often targeted at some strong Power, in the case of believers, or powers in the case of unbelievers. That prompted the psalmist to say in chapter 20 verse 7 that, even though many people trust in chariots and horses, but we believers should trust in the name of the Lord our God. It was this trust that saved David from Goliath, and the absence of the trust from Goliath, that delivered him into David’s hands.
🔥🔥🔥Because they trusted in God, 4 lepers who were driven out of Samaria, walked into the host of the Syrians, made the Syrians to flee, leaving the horses and chariots they trusted in behind in 2 Kgs 7:1-7. You and me that are going to Church, what do we trust in? Is it in our businesses, wealth, family names, education, our savings in the bank? What do we trust in? If we trust in our accumulated wealth instead of God, our faith can’t move mountains. Remember that because Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego trusted in God, both the king’s lions and furnace could not hurt them.
🙏Heavenly Father, use my sincere trust in you to sustain my new birth, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, use whatever weapon I have to defeat my enemies as I keep boasting with your name, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, put your fear in my footsteps against my enemies, to scare them into confusion as I walk into their midst in Jesus’ name.
