Psalm 20:7 ” Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the Name of the Lord our God.”

All throughout Biblical history the more horses and chariots a Nation had the more powerful and strong they showed themselves to others. These instruments of war were used to intimidate and show force to weaker Nations that they might surrender quietly. It was said, When peace comes over the land, the horses are put away. But in this verse it’s telling us that dependence on things created rather than in the Creator is just plain dangerous. Isaiah echoed this when he wrote that people rely on horses or trust in the multitude of chariots but don’t look to the Holy One or seek help from the Lord. The bottom line is that our trust can be in nothing else but the Lord, for it’s from Him that we receive deliverance and victory from all our battles.
