Psalm 20:1-4 The LORD answer you in the day of trouble! The name of the God of Jacob protect you! May he send you help from the sanctuary, and give you support from Zion. May he remember all your offerings, and regard with favour your burnt sacrifices. May he grant you your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your plans. (NRSV)

Right now, right in this moment, perhaps you’re going through some difficulty, some challenge, some trial, and what you need is God to help you in your day of trouble. Well, today I have a prayer for you, for Him to do exactly that.

King David – perhaps the greatest king that Israel ever had until Jesus came to this earth – had more than his fair share of trouble. His predecessor, Saul, tried to kill him. Armies tried to defeat him. Hey, even his own son tried to take David’s life. His own son!!!

So David absolutely gets it when it comes to those days of trouble. And that’s why when he pens a prayer for the likes of thee and me on those days, we’d better sit up and listen.

Psalm 20:1-4 The LORD answer you in the day of trouble! The name of the God of Jacob protect you! May he send you help from the sanctuary, and give you support from Zion. May he remember all your offerings, and regard with favour your burnt sacrifices. May he grant you your heart’s desire, and fulfil all your plans. (NRSV)

Okay, it’s couched in language of old. Sanctuary, sacrifice, Zion. But what David’s really doing here, inspired by God the Holy Spirit, is praying for us; for you, for me.

This is God’s Word and there’s power in the Word, amen? Real power. So let that Word, that power, wash over you in your day of trouble. Let the Holy Spirit speak His confidence, His protection, into your heart.

The Lord answer you in the day of trouble! The name of God protect you. May He send you His help and His support. May He remember all the sacrifices you’ve made along the way for His sake. May He grant you your heart’s desire and fulfil all your plans. Hallelujah!

Friend, that’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
