Below is the daily Bible reading I am doing for the West Side Church. Please feel free to follow along.
Today reading (Psalms 19 & 20) connects in a unique way.
David states “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the lord our God.” What an awesome observation David makes. I will argue that our world today is not much different. Many people turn to their own ways and trust in the creations of man to get them through. While I believe God uses those who help themselves, sometimes the only way things are possible is to rely on God. However this should not be a reliance that only comes around when the going gets tough, it should be a continual reliance on God.
We can rely on God because he is trustworthy and true. David also writes … “The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.” “The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.”
We can put our reliance’s on God because he has given us a perfect law that reveals the heart and nature of God. His ordinances are pure and sweet because they are for our protection and support. It is easy to rely on God when we know that he has our best interest at heart. What an amazing God we serve.
