Sometimes I trust in “chariots”:
- My instincts, abilities, insight
- My perspective and strength
- Human authorities or human wisdom
- Friends or relatives
When David faced the taunting giant, Goliath, he had the right perspective...he knew who he could trust. He said:
“You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty…”
1 Samuel 17:45
Do you have “Goliaths” in your life—financial, relational, career, emotional, or physical difficulties taunting you? Only in the name of the Lord can you conquer them or gain the strength to persevere.
