In His Name We Trust


May 3, 2024

 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; 

May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;” 

 - Psalms 20:1 (NKJV) 


Psalm 20:1 offers a powerful prayer for protection and defense: "May the name of the God of Jacob defend you." This verse speaks of the assurance we have in God's name, a Name that carries with it authority, strength, and protection. 


In our lives, we often face challenges and enemies that seem too strong for us to overcome. We may find ourselves in situations where we feel defenseless, unable to protect ourselves or those we care about. Yet, in those moments, we can turn to the name of the Lord for our defense. 


The name of Jesus is not just a word; it is a declaration of His power and sovereignty. It is a name above all names, capable of defeating every enemy and overcoming every obstacle. When we lift up our hands to heaven in the name of Jesus, we acknowledge His authority over our lives and situations. 

Even when we feel overwhelmed and outmatched, God is able to intervene on our behalf. He is our strong tower, our refuge in times of trouble.

Psalm 18:17, “He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me”, reminds us of God's faithfulness in delivering us from enemies that are too strong for us. Even when we feel overwhelmed and outmatched, God is able to intervene on our behalf. He is our strong tower, our refuge in times of trouble. 


If you find yourself facing a situation that seems too strong for you, take heart in the promise of Psalm 20:1. Lift up your hands in prayer, invoking the name of Jesus, and trust that He will be your defense. No enemy, no matter how strong, is beyond the reach of His mighty hand. 

So, let us declare with confidence that the name of the God of Jacob defends us. Let us trust in His unfailing love and protection, knowing that He is faithful to deliver us from every threat. May we find strength and courage in His name, knowing that in Him, we have victory. Amen. 


Song of Worship  

You fight for me, You always have, You always have 

My victory is in Your hands, in Your hands' 

The God of Heaven is my defense

Prayer -  Lord, we surrender our fears, our anxieties, and our struggles into Your hands. We release the need to rely on our own strength and understanding, and we choose to trust in You alone. Strengthen us, O Lord, and grant us courage and confidence as we face the challenges of life in Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
