Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. (Psalm 20:7)

Trust in God does not mean inaction. This weekend, our island is on nighttime curfew trying the slow the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, scientists and medical experts are racing to create a vaccine. You are probably doing a lot more hand-washing and wiping down of groceries. Although these are all means of protecting ourselves and those we love, they are not our ultimate protection. Rather, God is and can use such means to protect us.  To trust in the name of the Lord does not mean we sit passively by in life. Instead, we can actively engage in this life knowing that God alone is our protection (v1).  J.I. Packer said it like this: we can, “trust God and get going.”
