We Will Remember

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.

Psalm 20:7 (KJV)

We will remember the name of our God.

Other people can put their trust in their wealth, strength, education, fame, looks, etc. They can rely on themselves and what they have or can do to save them. They can think, “As long as I have this, I’ll be somebody, I’ll be protected.”

But we’ll remember our God. Because wealth doesn’t last forever; strength and looks fade away. Fame is only temporary, and education can fail you. Our God is everlasting, always there, never failing, never changing.

We know that, even when we do remember and trust Him, bad things can happen that we have no control over. We know that it’s so easy, even for those who know the Lord and serve Him, to start freaking out and wondering, “What am I going to do? What’s going to happen?”

But we have made and will continue to make the conscious decision of “No matter what happens, God, You are in control. I believe You are good and work out all things for good. I’m going to trust You.” We will look at the past and see all the ways He’s provided and come through before, and we will remind ourselves, “He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

We realize that we have to be broken and hurt before we can thank God for healing. That we have to go through the dark before we can appreciate the light. That we have to stare death in the face before we realize what a gift life is. We know it’s no fun and it hurts, but we also know it’s for our good. We will tell ourselves–and others–that the trials and storms are to strengthen our faith, our trust, our dependence on the Almighty. When it’s all over, we’ll be thankful and trust God even more.

Because we’ve decided that no matter what happens, no matter what we go through, “we will remember the name of the Lord our God.”
