It’s always amusing to hear people mention the name of someone famous when they are trying to get attention. They want those around to stand in awe because they want us to believe that they are close and personal friends with some with huge name recognition.
If you want to hang out with someone with name recognition, that person must be able to have a positive impact on your life. Well, in Psalm 20:7 AMP, David dropped a name. He said, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, But we will remember and trust in the name of the Lord our God.” The word trust means to rely upon or place confidence in someone or something. Imagine that people place their confidence in things that do not have the ability to communicate with them. Today, many people place their confidence in their wealth and when they have a crisis, they take their life.
While you might need a horse or chariot to make your venture successful, it’s important to remember that they are just tools; they cannot bring or prevent success. Moses recognized that success comes from God so he said, “And may the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful!” (Psalm 90:17 NLT) Real success comes from God. There are people who achieve success and you look at them and you wonder, “How did this happen?” It happened because God made them successful.
So, we need to be careful where we put our trust. While some put their confidence in man made things, it is important to remember that we need to put our trust in the name of the Lord. “Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], And your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance].” Proverbs 16:3 AMP.
Thought for Today: Friend, put your trust in God.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
