Today’s exhortation – real talk
“May the LORD answer you in times of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob protect you; May He send you help from His sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, And accept your sacrifices. May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your plans. We will shout for joy when you succeed, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the LORD give you all that you ask for. Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving power of His right hand.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will trust 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.” (Psalms 20:1-9). “The LORD will not abandon His people, because that would dishonor His great name. For it has pleased The LORD to make you His very own people.” (1 Samuel 12:22). These words haven’t just been thrown together to sound good, no, they are real truths meant for your exhortation and encouragement and for you to know the heart of God and His love for you. Amen
