Dec. 17 – Psalms 20:7

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Thursday Dec. 17th. The 5th day of the Hebraic week.

Our verse today is Psa. 20:7

Psa. 20:7
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of YHWH our God.

When YHWH wants us to grow, He makes us uncomfortable. In that time of being uncomfortable, He wants us to trust only in Him. Nothing else. No one else. Only Him.

It’s so easy to want to trust in things that we can see and feel. It’s so easy to want to trust in the authorities that are in place. Yet our hope is to be founded in the authority of YHWH.

Everything we need for every circumstance in life comes from Him. More often than not He seems to provide through means we just don’t see. Think about it. If you were standing at the Red Sea with Moses and saw the Egyptian army coming, would you have really even considered the Red Sea dividing in two as an option? If you were with Gideon, would you have thought the enemy was going to destroy itself? If you were King Saul, would you have dreamed YHWH would provide a young shepherd boy to kill the threatening giant with a slingshot?

Sometimes I can’t help but think that YHWH just has a good time with surprising us with how He’s going to deliver us from circumstances.

What do you trust in? Who do you trust in? Do you trust in man? Do you trust in man’s governments or judicial systems? Do you trust in man’s creations?

Psa. 20:7
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of YHWH our God.

No matter what you’re going through, trust in Him today. Learn to trust. Grow in that trust. That’s right. Grow in that trust. It’s not easy. Yet, every step taken in trust makes you one step stronger in Him.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
