The book of Psalms is a treasure teaching us how to…
And celebrate the God of our salvation.
There are Psalms for when you are laying in your bed and overwhelmed dreading facing the day.
There are Psalms for when you feel defeated.
There are Psalms for when you want to praise God but don’t know what to say.
But, Psalm 20 is a song… a prayer… an encouragement for your success.
Read it bearing in mind that you can replace any reference to animal sacrifice with the word ‘praise’.
God reminds us that praise is our sacrifice, since we are to praise God so many times when we really are at our lowest and don’t feel like it…
Hebrews 13:15 (NKJV)
15 Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
Psalm 27:6 (NKJV)
I like to call this Psalm of David a Psalm for your success. It’s a Psalm for..
For our deliverance.
For our purpose.
For the desires of our heart.
For our success.
Release it into the atmosphere and let it minister to you. God will bring it to pass.
Psalm 20 (NKJV)
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob [a]defend you;
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion;
3 May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah
4 May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,
And fulfill all your [b]purpose.
5 We will rejoice in your salvation,
And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions.
6 Now I know that the Lord saves His [c]anointed;
He will answer him from His holy heaven
With the saving strength of His right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen;
But we have risen and stand upright.
9 Save, Lord!
May the King answer us when we call.
