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

– Psalm 20:7 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Chariots and horses were signs of strength in ancient times, so the psalmist is contrasting where the followers of God get their strength vs. other paths to power. One of the problems with horses and chariots is that there will always be faster chariots and stronger horses to contend with, so the person who puts his trust in them has to live with the anxiety of how long his advantage will last. In contrast, there is no force that will ever displace God, so the person who trusts in the name of the Lord has peace. In a sense, anxiety or peace in our heart is a good indicator of where we are putting our trust and how we are to adjust.
