In Psalm 20, David pronounces a blessing on Israel’s worship, because He is confident that when Israel comes to the sanctuary, God really does meet with them. In David’s mind, it is better to meet with God than with the horse-master or chariot-keeper, because God is the one who hears, delivers, and saves. This means that no matter what your trouble is, your time is better spent by coming to worship and calling on God than trusting in the bank, the doctor, the judge, or whoever else you might seek help from. So come and worship, and receive the blessing of God. Embrace David’s faith that worship is the most practical and effective thing you can possibly do.
