TOPIC:  The Battle Belongs to the Lord

Pastor Bobby Earls, First Baptist Church, Center Point

Message 20 – June 29, 2008

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.
