There’s a great sense of satisfaction when our plans, programs and personnel are all in sync. The point where they intersect becomes our ministry “sweet spot”. Trusting soley in the success of the sweet spot could result in misplaced priorities.
Our strategies and staff may be a comfortable preference, but trusting in our Savior must be our convicting passion. Relying on Him is my absolute decision of abandoned dependence.
In Psalm 20:1-5, David delivers a sweet blessing . . .
“May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May He send you help from the sanctuary.
May He give you support from Zion!
May He remember all your offerings!
May He grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your plans!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!” (Psalm 20:1-5)
The psalmist continues by declaring the sole basis of the blessing, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” (Ps 20:7)
Have you ever wondered what we would consider “chariots and horses”?
Some trust in tried methods and some trust in talented men . . . but we trust in the true Messiah.
May we find our deepest joy by depending on Jesus.
