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.
Dear Lord, sometimes we see you working on our behalf, sometimes we don’t, but either way, let us never forget where our provision lies. While we may have jobs, friends, family, cars, and homes, these are not our support or our source. They are only the tools that you use to provide for our needs. Let us always be grateful for them, but never rely on them in place of you. Even before we knew to call on you, it was always you and you alone that has and forever will be our deliverer. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
