The Assurance of God’s Saving Work
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion;
3 May He remember all your offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah
4 May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose.
5 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.
6 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.
7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright.
9 Save, Lord! May the King answer us when we call.Psalm 20:1-9 (NKJV)
