We may have to return to chariots if gas prices get any higher…
I don’t want chariots; I want lower gas prices. When I filled up the other day, gas was over $4.00 a gallon. In fact, one station we passed on the way to 1 of my 3 heart appointments last week (Read about that here) had raised the price 20 cents by the time we headed back home!
The idea of chariots comes from our verse today: Psalm 20:7, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses…” Horses and chariots were signs of wealth and power in Old Testament times, reserved for leaders of armies and royals while the average man on the street walked everywhere. And some people of that day would put their trust in those with the horses and chariots – despite God outsmarting them in the Red Sea in Exodus 14:22-28.
BUT we remember
Ps. 20:7 ends with, “BUT we remember the name of the LORD our God.” You see, I’ve been praising God for so much lately:
- Lung nodule vanished!
- Apparent past heart attack left NO damage!
- I have no blockages that would/could have caused a heart attack!
So, yes. I’m setting this post to go live on a random Thursday – the day I’m scheduled for my thyroid surgery. I’m going off my planned schedule to allow myself time for healing and recovery without the pressure of needing to post again until July 5th. Hope to see you then! I just want you to remember the Name of the LORD our God! If you need a list of His names, look here.
