In Whom We Put Our Trust


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

Psalm 20:7 ESV


Some people will place their trust in things like, power, position, riches, fame, intellect, or even looks. But can these things save you? Make sure sure what you trust in, can really save you. Things fade, get stolen, forgotten, or wear out, but trusting in the Lord our God is forever!

It can be easy to put your trust in things that you see or have in the present and forget about what may happen. In a way, that is why people buy insurance. We cannot know what will happen in the future and as a safeguard, we can look to buying insurance. We pray that we won’t get cancer, or something won’t happen to our home, and insurance might help should something happen. However, all the things on this earth cannot give us insurance for our souls. The only insurance we have is in God. Yet, not only for our souls but for our life. 


Putting our faith in things in the world, can change at any moment. We can lose our money because of loss of our job, or something goes wrong so where do we turn? Sadly, for some they turn to hurting others, or surrendering their own life because they no longer have anything to put their trust in. In Matthew 7:24-27 calls us to build our life on a solid foundation, not on one that will wash away should storms or hardships come. Having a great job, a good lifestyle, etc, are blessings, but let’s not put our trust in them, but in the One from whom all comes. He will care for us in times of plenty and also in times of few.

Personally, I am called to stop worrying about what others may have. To stop looking toward things to save me when storms come, but to trust that God will be there to help me. 


Dear Jesus, thank you so much that we can have trust in You! For you are unchanging. You are forever, and you are the source of all things for me. Thank you for providing for me. I ask that you help us to trust in you and your timing for things. Let us not be swayed by things we have built up for ourselves. Let’s put our trust fully in You, God Almighty! In Your Name, Jesus. Amen!

詩篇20:7 ESV
