"Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God." Psalm 20:7
What do you prefer, chariots or horses? Undoubtedly, both choices offer pros and cons. A vote for one is a vote for the preferred benefits as seen by the voter. One voter might has a love for speed and the feel of vibrating metal under his feet, while another is driven by the snorting of the horse in his ears and the mane whipping over his hand.
Which can you trust to be best? Consider, there's a possibility the chariot's wheel could roll off and down a valley. So the horse, right? But, the horse could possibly trip over a limb and break his leg, as well as yours. There is no perfect, error-free choice. Both have frailties and drawbacks.
Our country's election day is Tuesday. Some will vote for horses and others for chariots, based on how they view the needs of our country, our neighbors and ourselves. There is no perfect sanitizing, sanctifying Mr. Clean for our sin-infested land. Who can you trust?
Lord, i pray for our land as we elect our President on Tuesday. May there be wisdom and discernment on who and what we support. While i feel unable to trust all i have heard in the campaigns from the candidates and the parties, i rest in the fact there is one Source i can trust. God, in You, i have complete trust. You might not tell me what i want to hear, but what i need to hear... truth. No matter who wins Tuesday, i will cling to You and Your promises for they are True and Trustworthy, always. You are not into marketing Yourself, but into making disciples of us. Thank You.
have a truth-filled day!
