TOPIC: KNOWLEDGE OF THE NAMES OF GOD (4)
TEXT: PSALM 20:7
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
Why was the trust of people in chariots?
A war lasts until there is victory from one of the party. One must surrender! Victory is what ends a battle and both sides cannot have victory same time. So,you need to be ready to fight for long. A strong army who cannot sustain battle for so long may still loose the battle. Hence, chariots help to fight for long time till battle is won. People have the likelyhood of putting trust in chariots and horses for this reason
But the greatest source of such renewal of strength is by waiting upon the Lord.
Isaiah 40:28-29 (KJV) Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Those who depend on his name must wait on him. Many believers have learnt to run around more than wait on him! That is why the name of the Lord seems not enough!
Are you weary of life battles? Are you quiting your walk with Jesus? Have you abandoned the way of righteousness? Have you abandoned your assignment in the kingdom? Come for renewal of strength today.
Father,I know I have victory in your name. I renew strength as I wait on you in Jesus name
