The king traveled into battle. He was surrounded by his strongest men. He was riding upon the most elite chariot. He didn’t fear his enemy. He didn’t fear his future. He trusted that he would be fine. He thought that because he had the best protection available he had nothing to fear.
And then he was killed. The enemy surpassed all of the security and destroyed him.
The king had misplaced his hope and trust. He had put stock in the things he could come up with, not The Lord.
God is the deliverer of the soul. He is the one who saves His people. He watches each step.
Be careful of what you put your trust in. Jesus is the only true security available in this world.
