Psalms — Psalm 20 – Boasting!

Day 2564: Praying for much needed rain to come this weekend on the Central Coast of CA!

Scripture:  May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high! May He send you help from the sanctuary and support you from Zion! May He remember all your meal offerings and find your burnt offering acceptable! Selah.

May He grant you your heart’s desire and fulfill all your counsel! We will sing for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners. May the Lord fulfill all your petitions. Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.

Some boast in chariots and some in horses, but we will boast in the name of the Lord, our God. They have bowed down and fallen, but we have risen and stood upright. Save, O Lord; may the King answer us in the day we call.  Psalm 20

Thoughts/questionsSome boast in chariots and some in horses, but we will boast in the name of the Lord, our God. This is perfect for this last month of election mania in the U.S. As Christ followers, we MUST not consider the presidential winner to be what we boast in. No, our boasting must ALWAYS be in the name of the Lord, our God! Our focus, our savior, our deliverer, our King of kings!!!

Suggested prayer: Father God, help me to always remember that You are the King of kings and Lord of lords . . .
