Yesterday I posted Psalm 20 with the title “Some trust in chariots,” v.7. Trust grows, often slowly, as we experience the new life, the regenerate life, in Messiah Yeshua. The psalm is a prayer for combatants. The Pandemic of 2020 has been likened to an invisible war. If it is a war then there are no civilians. There is universal draft. We are all in it.
Like any combatant, we take up the arms we are trained to use. Yet we are more than worldly combatants. As such we have available to us greater arms, greater strength, than others. Trust is one.
“They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright,” v.8. Experience. We see others’ collapse from fear, we feel within us an inner peace, and our soul rises just a little. Each time we allow Spirit to raise us a little more we gain confidence, we gain trust. Little by little we grow in faith until we stand upright.
Our enemy isn’t an invisible plague, though too often our enemy is invisible. Our enemy is, as Apostle Paul explains:
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places,”
Trust grows like leaves and flowers in Spring. Sometimes slowly. Sometimes quite rapidly. Experience is the food that feeds the growth.
Let us Stand Upright Together. Let us experience great trust in our Heavenly Father who gave His Son Yeshua for us our eternal lives.
We have no peace in this world, necessarily. We have Peace in our souls in our G-D.
