Psalms 146-150 – Day 13

Psalm 147:10

His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor His delight in the legs of the warrior.

The Thought

I do not suppose that too many of us reading this today in our western culture can really identify with this verse! The majority of people no longer rely on horses to lead us into battle! We travel in cars, trains and planes, and we give that very little thought until there is a strike or a breakdown, and then we get frustrated with thwarted plans!

The strength of legs is not as important a matter as it was in the days when everyone travelled mainly on foot, and when armies marched for days at a time with runners going ahead to spy out the land. But, there are still many parts of the world where healthy legs are essential.

In those areas of the world where there is still no running water, children from a very young age often have to walk miles each day to collect their daily supply of water. (And even then, it is not always very clean water!) In those areas having a handicapped person in the family can be a huge problem.

Another psalm gives us an idea of what The Lord is really looking for when He searches the earth: God looks down from Heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God (Psalm 53:2).


Read Psalm 53 today and ask yourself if your Heavenly Father is still doing that! Does He still search the earth looking for those who seek Him? Do you think He is encouraged, or disappointed with what He sees in your area?

Pray for those you know who do not yet know Jesus, that they will look at Christianity more seriously today, remembering that God said You will seek Me and find me when you seek Me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13).
