“No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.”
-Battle & war was fashionable during the Old Testament times & the nation which conquered were deemed the greatest. Imperialism was adopted afterwards; during the colonial times & powers which colonized most nations conquered the world. Such need for conquest has entered the hearts of men & the need to rule over others by exercising oppressive rule has become common. We are also told that no warrior escapes by his great strength, & many who have financial & political power feel the need to carry guns, drive bullet proof vehicles & hire highly advanced security. These are also likened to war horses which offer vain hope for deliverance. Only God has sovereignty over life & death & reminds us that His eyes are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love, to deliver them from death & keep them alive in famine.
Salvation belongs to You only Jesus for You have saved the world. Deliver us from all forms of idolatry & pride, we place all our trust in You Lord. Horses are made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests upon You Lord. Even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil, for You are with us Lord; & Your rod & staff comforts us. Fill our hearts with Your love, wisdom & faith, so that we may fully rely on You to deliver us from death & to sustain us during the time of famine. Take control of our lives, our families, our economy, our nation & restore us gracious Father. Salvation belongs to You Jesus now & forever. Amen
