Inspired by . . . trust

 

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:

but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7 (KJV)

I had an encounter with this beautiful creature the other day. He insists that the grass is greener on our side of the fence. That is, in fact, true.

When he was finished eating his fill and running to his hearts content he was ready to go home. I made the mistake of getting between him and the fence. Thankfully, all I got for my stupidity was a new hairdo.  He blew my hair around and nibbled on my shoulder as I finished unwinding the wire from the post to let him back through.

 

It was delightful.

 

Having been up close and personal with this powerful horse, I can understand why man would trust in them.

 

See those people polishing their chariots,
and those others grooming their horses?
But we’re making garlands for GOD our God.
The chariots will rust,
those horses pull up lame—
and we’ll be on our feet, standing tall. Psalm 20:7 (MSG)

 

The Message translation of this verse states plainly what we already know. The things of this world do not last. Wealth and possessions will rust, decay or otherwise be lost. People will abandon us, disappoint us, or worse. Are these really things in which we should be putting our trust?

In what or whom do you put your trust?

 

Sometimes we have to come face-to-face with what we fear the most to really know the answer to that question.

Some people find it hardest to trust God during times of great blessing, when Pride begins to visit the heart and mind. But for most of us, just the opposite is true.

If we claim to trust in God, then . . .

. . . what if the worst did happen?

. . . what if our greatest fear did come true?

 

Would we still trust God?

I pray that my answer, and yours would echo that of Peter’s in John 6:68:

 

Simon Peter answered Him,

“Lord, to whom shall we go?

You have the words of eternal life.”

 

 

Blessings,

  1. I love that verse from John 6:68. I think I shall sit here for a while. Okay? Taking a pause to reflect.
    Much love to you, June.

  2. June, this was a beautifully worded Spirit-inspired post! Horses are one of God's most perfect gifts to us...powerful, breath-takingly beautiful, able to help us in so many ways. And yet they are one of God's creatures, and no true help comes from anyone but God. He is our Maker, Comforter, and Guide. He is our All if we only trust in Him. Through Jesus. And yet when I have a close encounter with something SOOO wonderful, that He made, like this amazing horse, it thrills me to the bone! :-) Fantastic photos! Glad you got lipped and snorted on! Too cool! :-)
