Psalm 20:6 “Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;”
[This is a rock-solid certainty: you, Heavenly Father, saved king David in many difficult circumstances. And you saved Jesus, the anointed One–but not in the way any human would have expected. You did not save Him from suffering and death; you saved him through agony and death by the resurrection. And you saved us through the same act of grace.
I praise you that every day, in the battle of life, you continue saving us, your chosen ones, your anointed ones. You are a shield to all those who take refuge in you (Prov. 30:5).]
“he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand.”
[You answered David in his distress, you answered Jesus in his death, you answer us in our difficulties–every day. And your answers aren’t some minor move, but are in the mighty majesty of your right hand, your most powerful means of action. Your munificent ministerings show the depth of your commitment and attention to your chosen and appointed ones.
Praise you, Lord God, that you are the Deliverer, the Rescuer, the Answerer, the Shield, the Lover of your children. You are the Trustable One to be worshiped and obeyed in belief!
Help us to trust in you today, Lord God, resting in the certainty of your presence, your power and your provision, even when at the moment, we can see no help on the horizon.
Praise you for your faithfulness we will experience today, so we can “know this love that surpasses knowledge” and our lives can be “filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:10).]
