Trusting in Military might

Behold, the LORD’s eye is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his loving kindness; to deliver their soul from death, to keep them alive in famine.

– Psalm 33:18-19


Today’s verse comes near the end of Psalm 33, right after a warning about trusting in military might.


Though kings and armies and horses might solve some earthly problems, the Psalmist knows God is the only answer to spiritual shortages. Nothing on earth can save souls from death or keep them alive in times of famine – whether that famine is spiritual or physical.Yet every day, God delivers His children from fates worse than death. Every day, we can sing an along with the Psalmist an old song that sounds new:



“Our heart rejoices in Him, because we have trusted in His holy Name!” (Psalm 33:21)



Mighty God,

May I never forget to praise You.

Your majesty and glory are eternal.

Thank You for Your loving-kindness and for Your grace, which saves my soul.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
