Bible Reading: 2 Samuel 10; 1 Chronicles 19; Psalm 20, 53, 60, 75


1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2  May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Zion!
3  May he remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices!  Psalm 20:1-3


A good old fashioned blessing that the Lord will look after you.


I love the simple words of this Psalm.  As it goes on it’s a comprehensive blessing that all resolves to one simple truth: trust in the Lord.


Lord, two things always happen; things go wrong, and things go right.  In either case, may the words of Psalm 20 ring in my ear and may I always trust in you.  Amen.
