In my daily treading of the Bible I recently came across Psalm 20. It really hit me as how God had his people write down something thousands of years ago God can touch our lives today. Read through Psalm 20 and stop and think how this applies to your life today.
Start by asking God to reveal to you through His word, what it can mean for you right here and now.
Psalm 20 – A psalm of David
May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and grant you support from Zion.
May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.
May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.
May we shout for joy over your victory
and lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the Lord grant all your requests.
Now this I know:
The Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
Lord, give victory to the king!
Answer us when we call!
