Psalm 20

Royal (earthly king)

I Will Trust in God’s Name

                7 Some boast in chariots and some in horses,

                But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.

·         The greatest men, even mighty kings, are subject to sorrow, and need the prayers of others, and the help of God.

·         When our troubles are so great and grievous as to lead us directly to God, we often get a safe deliverance from them, or a sanctified use of them much sooner than when they are lighter or less sharp.

·         When in anything we get help in God’s appointed way, it is not only sweet in itself, but a pledge of farther good.

·         Accepted worship is an amazing mercy.

·         The more we have prayed for a deliverance, and the more manifestly it is from God, the greater our joy.

·         As often as the grasp of true faith is weakened or slackened, it must and will renew its hold on the covenant and perfections of God.

·         In the great conflict between Christ and the dragon the issue is not doubtful. A battle may seem to be lost, but the war must end in the triumph of truth, in the reign of righteousness, in the crowning of Messiah.
