More Powerful than Horses

Daily Reading: Zechariah 10


Scripture Focus: They shall be like mighty men in battle, trampling the foe in the mud of the streets; they shall fight because the Lord is with them, and they shall put to shame the riders on horses. I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back because I have compassion on them, and they shall be as though I had not rejected them, for I am the Lord their God and I will answer them. (Zechariah 10:5-6)


Devotional Thought: Life is a battlefield with a real Enemy who doesn’t want us to follow Jesus. We don’t have to be afraid, though, because when God is with us, we are victorious. There is no one greater than our God. As the prophet wrote, the Lord is more powerful than horses!


When we are weak, God strengthens us, like he strengthened the house of Judah. When we sin and mess up, God doesn’t turn his back on us, but brings us back to him after repentance. Zechariah probably wrote his book around the time that the Israelites returned from their Babylonian captivity. Zechariah's words offered hope to his people. The Lord reminded them of his covenant. Even though the Israelites had turned away, the Lord desired to restore them to that covenant relationship.


How do you need the Lord to restore you today? Remember the Lord is your strength. Nothing is too hard for him to handle. Don’t be discouraged if your problem seems overwhelming. You can fight and be victorious because the Lord is always with you! And if you fall, he is there to pick you up, forgive you, and bring you back into communion with him!

Prayer: Strengthen my hands, stiffen my spine, and still my soul, O Lord, for the battle rages before me. In you I trust! Amen.


Psalm of the Day: 1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 2 My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. 4 Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. (Psalms 121:1-4)
