In God We Trust

Psalm 20:7-8
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.

Chariots can:
Break, get stuck in the mud, overturn, get stolen, run into a bigger chariot, etc.

Horses can:
Die, get old, get injured, get stolen, run into a bigger horse.

Today people don't trust in chariots or horses.
They trust in what? - Money

"In God We Trust"
It is a phrase that has known an important place in the history of our nation now for many years.

It was in November of 1861. A letter was written to the Secretary of the Treasury by Rev. M. R. Watkinson..... Watkinson was a Minister of the Gospel from Ridleyville, Pennsylvania.

The reverend's letter included theses comments:
"One fact touching our currency has hitherto been seriously overlooked..... I mean the recognition of the Almighty God in some form on our coins."

As a result of that letter, Secretary Chase wrote a letter to the Director of the Mint at Philadelphia, to prepare a motto for our nations coins.

Chase's letter to the director of the mint, dated November 20, 1861: included these words
Dear Sir: No nation can be strong except in the strength of God, or safe except in His defense. The trust of our people in God should be declared on our national coins.

The rest is history....

The more money people have, the more they want to trust in it.
Benjamin Franklin once wrote, "Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature that creates happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of its filling a vacuum, it makes one. If it satisfies one want, it doubles and triples that want another way."

John D. Rockefeller Jr. wrote "The poorest man I know is the man who has nothing but money".

Robert Horton said that a great lesson he learned from life is that "people who set their minds and hearts on money are equally disappointed whether they get it or whether they don't".

"but we trust in the name of the Lord our God."
God cannot change:
He cannot die, get injured, get lost, get stolen.
He cannot get tired.  He cannot stop loving us.

He also cannot lie = He will keep all His promises to us.

Psalm 20:7-8
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. 8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
