Misplaced trust

Psalm 20-7Psalm 20:7

Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.

So what is the name of your horse and/or chariot?
Is it possible, that you and I might own a horse named:

    • money
    • intellect
    • education
    • earthly power
    • family
    • family name
    • position
    • status
    • connections
    • emotions
    • tradition
    • human reasoning
    • drugs/alcohol
    • self

Exodus 3

13 Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”

14 God said to Moses, I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

15 God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’

“This is my name forever,
    the name you shall call me
    from generation to generation.”

The unchanging God: “I Am Who I Am” – everything you need.

Proverbs 18-10

Psalm 18:14
“I love you, O Lord, my strength.The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom in take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.”
[enemies = the trouble, issues, storms we talked about yesterday]

Thank you, Jesus!
2 Peter 1:3, “His divine power has given us everything we need
for a godly life through our knowledge of Him
who called us by his own glory and goodness.”

In other words, we don’t need a horse or chariot, we have Jesus…
His grace is sufficient for our every need!
