Wednesdays with Words: Horses and Chariots

During this election season fraught with lying liars who lie to gain power, I find myself contemplating the goodness of God, his might and power, and his eternal plan.

While I look at the current candidates for office, I remember that God is in control and I can look to him. Not in complaisance, but in trust. Remember 2 Kings 5:15-19 (emphasis mine):

When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. And the servant said, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. And when the Syrians came down against him, Elisha prayed to the LORD and said, “Please strike this people with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness in accordance with the prayer of Elisha. And Elisha said to them, “This is not the way, and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom you seek.” And he led them to Samaria.

We may not be fighting armed battles every day, but the LORD is on the side of his people to bring about his Kingdom and Glory. Look to Him.



  1. I have been reading Gold By Moonlight by Amy Carmichael, and it's wonderful! And so timely right now.
    Thanks for your post. I am looking to Him. 🙂
