Today's Reading:

Psalm 20:1-2

"THE LORD hear thee in the day of trouble, the name of the God of Jacob defend thee, send thee help from the sanctuary and strengthen thee out of Zion.” (v. 1)


Jesus Christ when He was about to depart from this earth in John16:33, He said "These things I Have Spoken unto you that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. What is trouble? It is absence of peace, a distressful or dangerous situation, a difficulty, problem, in fact anything in the negative. It is a situation which everyone tends to avoid, because of the adverse effects that comes with it. Trouble at some other times could lead to promotions and accomplishments in life. Trouble could come from God, man or the devil. With the case of Job in the Bible, God allowed Satan to test Job's righteousness to God and at the end of it he became blessed.

Trouble could come to man himself through his disobedience, for example, King Saul when he was asked to utterly destroy the Amalekites by God, he did not utterly destroy them, hence trouble came his way. Lastly from the devil, as in the case of the temptations of Jesus Christ in the wilderness. Irrespective of where the trouble is coming from, Jesus Christ has promised us His children to be of good cheer, that He has overcome the world. Therefore, let us connect our lives to the prayers of the psalmist in Psalm 20 and be people of utmost faith so as to be heard by God and answered.




  1. Power of trouble assigned against my life die in the name of Jesus.

  2. Oh God my father remove trouble from my life in the name of Jesus.

  3. Oh God arise answer your name in my life in the name of Jesus.

  4. Jesus Christ the prince of peace, arise manifest yourself in my life in the name of Jesus.

  5. Dominion power of the Almighty God locate me now in the name of Jesus.
