Equally, the verses teach us something very comforting about circumstances. I don’t really fear or trust in horses or chariots. Do you? Unless a person really loves horses, most of us don’t come into contact with them on a daily basis. What is my point? Circumstances constantly change, as much as those things people put their trust and hope in are constantly changing. David lived in a day when people relied on horses and chariots for warfare. Today we rely on long-range ballistic missiles for warfare. Although the weapons change, the truth remains the same. Anything other than God alone is shifting sand. Although I may not put my trust in horses, I may be guilty of putting my trust in my 401k, or my car, or the government. The point is simple we can never be guilty of trusting totally in anything other than Jesus Christ.
As we see week after week, our world is unstable. Markets fluctuate, wars begin, circumstances in Midlothian and the world change constantly. If our security is the stability of financial markets or the sophistication of our military, we are building our house on the sand. The simple truth is that nothing is certain except God. I don’t know what it is that you are depending upon more than Jesus, but take comfort in Psalm 20. He is faithful and true. When all else fails, Jesus reigns supreme.
