Welcome to Day 21 of Prayer Treasures.
What is the object of your trust?
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:7
What is Trust?
Trust is a firm belief in the truth, ability or strength of something or someone.
Trust is believing in God and his promises. Trust is having confidence that God is who he says he is.
In Exodus, when the Israelites left Egypt, Pharaoh went after them with his best horses and chariots. As the Israelites stood on the edge of the red sea, Moses encouraged them with these words…
”Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today, you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you only need to be still.”Exodus 14:13-14
The Egyptians pursued the Israelites into the red sea, but the Lord threw the Egyptian army into confusion and made the wheels fall off from their chariots.
Like the Israelites, you and I face many battles daily. But in your case, the enemy is after your ability to trust God, yourself, and others so that he can keep you off balance and locked down in anxiety and fear.
Friend, today’s verse in Psalm 20:7 is dear to my heart. I consider it one of my walking sticks of faith because it has encouraged me and helped me weather many storms. The first time I understood the meaning of this scripture, it set me free from anxiety.
What challenging situation do you face today? Where will you place your trust?
May I encourage you to consider these Truths:
- There is a greater power with you than the enemy, Satan.
- The enemy has only an arm of flesh, but you have the Lord God with you to help you fight every battle.
- You are already victorious because of Jesus and his sacrifice for you on the Cross. He will never leave you, nor forsake you.
- God is your helper, you do not need to be afraid.
Friend, in what ways will you ask God to help you stand firm, be still, and trust him to fight your battles?
