I needed two medications urgently. One was for my mom’s allergies and the other for my niece’s eczema. Their discomfort was worsening, but the medicines were no longer available in pharmacies. Desperate and helpless, I prayed repeatedly, Lord, please help them.

Weeks later, their conditions became manageable. God seemed to be saying: “There are times when I use medicines to heal. But medicines don’t have the final say; I do. Don’t place your trust in them, but in Me.”   

In Psalm 20, King David took comfort in God’s trustworthiness. The Israelites had a powerful army, but they knew that their biggest strength came from “the name of the Lord” (v. 7). They placed their trust in God’s name—in who He is, His unchanging character, and unfailing promises. They held on to the truth that He who is sovereign and powerful over all situations would hear their prayers and deliver them from their enemies (v. 6).  

While God may use the resources of this world to help us, ultimately, victory over our problems comes from Him. Whether He gives us a resolution or the grace to endure, we can trust that He’ll be to us all that He says He is. We don’t have to be overwhelmed by our troubles, but we can face them with His hope and peace.

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread.

Our reading titled, Trusting God, was written by Karen Huang. I needed two medications urgently. One was for my mom's allergies and the other for my niece's eczema. Their discomfort was worsening but the medicines were no longer available in pharmacies. Desperate and helpless, I prayed repeatedly, Lord please help them.

Weeks later, their conditions became manageable. God seemed to be saying, there are times when I use medicines to heal, but medicines don't have the final say, I do. Don't place your trust in them, but in me. In Psalm 20, King David took comfort in God's trustworthiness. The Israelites had a powerful army, but they knew that their biggest strength came from the name of the Lord. They placed their trust in God's name, in who He is, His unchanging character and unfailing promises.

They held on to the truth that He who is sovereign and powerful over all situations, would hear their prayers and deliver them from their enemies. While God may use the resources of this world to help us, ultimately, victory over our problems comes from Him. Whether He gives us a resolution or the grace to endure, we can trust that He'll be to us all that He says He is. We don't have to be overwhelmed by our troubles, but we can face them with His hope and peace.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional scripture reading is Psalm 20. May the Lord answer you when you are in distress. May the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May He send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion. May He remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests.

Now this I know. The Lord gives victory to His anointed. He answers him from His heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of His right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.

Lord, give victory to the King. Answer us when we call. Let's pray. Heavenly Father, help us to trust you and believe that you are all that you promised to be. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Joyce Dinkins and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread Ministries.
