Reading along with us in the first 30 chapters of Psalm? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 20 (ESV)

May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2 May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Zion!
3 May he remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4 May he grant you your heart’s desire
and fulfill all your plans!
5 May we shout for joy over your salvation,
and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!… Continue Reading

  1. May we shout for joy over your salvation,
    and in the name of our God set up our banners!

    Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.❤️

  2. What a fitting Psalm to follow many of the ones that proceed it that seek God for His help against David’s enemies. How often do we find ourselves on the other side of trials saying…now I know God is faithful and saves His people (v.6) And aren’t the 5 verses that come before v6 fitting where David wishes for God to help others (even us) in the way that He has helped him.

    I was struck, like Melanie, by verse 7 and think of modern day examples of things we trust in instead of God. Horses and chariots aren’t significant to us but houses and 401ks might be…or our jobs or families or talents and intelligence…yes, many trust in those things, but let us trust in the Lord. Those other things are not bad, certainly, but are not worthy of life direction and purpose, our hope and expectation, our reliance or identification. Only God is worthy of those things…..
