Now Know I

 6Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
 7Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
 8They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
 9Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call. 

Now Know I

The first three words of Psalm 20, verse 6, are some of the most powerful words of this Psalm: "Now know I." 

Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed

David understood the truth that there is no victory apart from God, and there is no failure with God! Do we believe that? Do we live as though we believe that? It is time that we, as Christians, stop and take a moment to evaluate the true direction of our lives. Do we truly live in a manner that is consistent with what we say we believe? Who is this God we serve? Is he really our King of King and Lord of Lords?

In other words, when all is said and done, where do we put our trust?

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses . . . They are brought down and fallen.

We will remember the name of the LORD our God. . . . we are risen, and stand upright.

This is not the time for Christians to engross themselves in the ways of the world, ignoring their first calling. Neither is this the time for Christians to doubt the one true living God! This is the time for Christians to rise up and shout with David, Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed.

We are in a battle with all of the forces of darkness, and we are on the winning side! Let us stand up and look to our God, our King, and let us serve him with all of our strength and all of our might.

Now know I that the Lord saves!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

God Bless You,
Linda
