David did not build his trust on the strengths he had at his disposal. Back in the day, chariots and horses were used in battle and were also a mode of transportation. They were symbolic of strength. David knew of a Strength greater than all the strengths of chariots and horses. He trusted in the Name of the Lord His God.
I love to trust in His Name. He is a God with many names...
