Good morning y’all. Today we looking at Psalms 20. This is one of my favorite psalms :).
I’m reading from the Contemporary English Version. Be blessed 🙂
I will focus today’s blog on verse 6 and 7.
“I am certain, Lord, that you will help your chosen king. You will answer my prayers from your holy place in heaven, and you will save me with your mighty arm. Some people trust the power of chariots or horses, but we trust you, Lord God”. ( Psalms 20:6-7 CEVUS06)
David was certain that the Lord will answer his prayer and the reason he was certain is in verse 7. He says “…but we trust you, Lord God”. His trust was not in man but in God.
Friends, are you certain that God will answer your prayer? Do you trust him? Do you believe He will do that which he has promised you? David was certain. To be certain means “free from doubt or reservation; confident; sure to happen” (dictionary.com). In effect, David was saying, Lord I have no reservation or doubt that you will answer my prayer; I am confident in your ability as God to do that which i have requested of you!
Friends, if we want to recieve from God, we have to be certain. We can’t go to God with doubts as to whether he will answer or not, thats not faith. Hebrews 11:1 says: “What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead” (Living Bible). Hebrews 11:6 also tells us that: “You can never please God without faith, without depending on him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely look for him” (Living Bible).
God is still in the business of answering prayers, including yours :). I will end with a few scriptures to encourage our faith.
Isaiah 65:24 NLT : I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
Jeremiah 29:12 NLT: In those days when you pray, I will listen.
Jeremiah 1:12 ESV : Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.”
Matthew 7:7 ESV : “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Mark 11:24 ESV: Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
1 John 5:14-15 ESV : And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
Be encouraged, help is on way. Keep asking and believing 🙂
Dear Lord we thank you for today. Thank you for reminding us that you are the one who answers our prayers. Pls help our unbelief and give us grace to trust you more. We pray that you will listen when we are in trouble, and that you; God of Jacob will keep us safe. Lord send help from your temple and come to our rescue from Mount Zion. Remember our gifts and be pleased with what we bring. God do what we want most and let all go well for us. Then we will win victories, and we will celebrate, while raising our banners in the name of our God. Lord answer all your prayers. Thank you Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Thank you for joining.
