“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”  (Psalm 20:7, NIV)

The “horses” and “chariots” of today are no less alluring than in David’s time.

As disciples of Jesus, the Lord God is not our “last resort”; as in someone we call on when all of our other schemes have failed, and our other means have been exhausted.  On the contrary: The Lord God is our first resource.

In the words of the hymn (“What a Friend we have in Jesus”): “O what peace we often forfeit; o what needless pain we bear.  All because we do not carry; everything to God in prayer.”  – Luther
