After the mid-term elections and every day: It is better to trust in the Lord. . .

November 9, 2022

As the results of the mid-term elections continued to come in this morning, a verse from the Book of Psalms came to mind, and this will serve as my personal Verse of the Day for November 9, 2022:

Psalm 118:8 (Amplified Bible)

It is better to trust and take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Some people say that this verse is “smack dab in the center” of the Bible, meaning that if you open many Bibles to the center with the same number of pages on each side, you will find yourself in the vicinity of Psalm 118:8. Others say that it is not the center verse of the Scriptures. In any case, it was the inspiration for an original psalm with these lyrics to remind us we should not put our trust solely in elected officials to resolve the critical issues that confront the nation and the world.

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Cast aside your own selfish schemes and follow His perfect plan.

Focus your eyes on Him and stay centered in His will.

Keep seeking the Lord with all your heart, stay prayerful and be still.

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

The power of man is limited, though he may do the best he can.

Put all your trust in the Lord, for righteousness shall prevail.

Keep putting your confidence in God, for He will never fail.

Other  verses from the Psalmist echo the same sentiments:

Psalm 20:7 (Amplified Bible)

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

Chariots and horses represent the power and strength of a nation, where some individuals may choose to place their confidence, but as Christian believers, we choose to place our confidence and trust in the name of the Lord. We stand resolute, in the facing of opposing forces, knowing that God Almighty never fails, and He alone is worthy of all our trust.

We conclude with this joyful exhortation that “Some May Trust in Horses” featuring Lynn DeShazo:
