May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you; May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt offering sacrifice. May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose.
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. 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 trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright. Save, Lord! May the King answer us when we call. Psalm 20 NKJV
When I started writing these devotions my heart was full of God’s Word. I was overflowing and overcome with the Lord’s goodness and mercy. I needed an outlet to share what Jesus was doing in my life. I cried out in praise of God!
Jesus wants to save everyone. God does not want anyone to perish. He wants all people to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Jesus wants to save us from the bondage of trusting in our own strength and resources. Jesus wants to save us from eternal separation from the Father. Jesus wants us to live in the safety of His love forever!
When we cry out to Him for help God answers from heaven. Jesus saves us with His mighty right arm!
What will Jesus save us from? He will deliver us from the slavery of sin. He will deliver us from evil so we can live in the freedom of His good and perfect plan and purpose!
Remember the name of the Lord. His name is faithful and true! His name is a strong tower! There is salvation in the mighty name of Jesus! He will lift you up and stand you on your feet when you have fallen. Jesus is moved to action by His love for you!
The Children of Israel stood before the Lord in victory. They gave God the glory. He was with them. He defended them. God revealed His love in a practical way that impacted their lives. As the leader of God’s people David stood up and repeated their prayer!
God gives us leaders after our own hearts. If we hunger for righteousness others will follow. Our nation will be blessed. If we wallow in sin it will spread to the people around us. Our leaders will deny the Lord. Our world will spiral farther down into the darkness of ungodliness.
We live in a world dominated by sin. It is controlled by evil. If we trust Jesus we can live in victory over sin death and every other form of evil!
This world is not our home. An eternity of blessed perfection awaits us. Seek Jesus. Jesus saves His people from all forms of evil!
