Psalm 20 is like the calm before the storm. Israel is ready for battle. An eerie silence falls across the battlefield just moments before the sounds of war break forth. Their enemies are at the ready, trusting in their chariots and horses to deliver the victory to them. However, in this moment of silence before the battle begins, Israel’s commanders go to the Temple, offer sacrifices to God, and petition Him for blessing. The lesson for believers is that spiritual preparations must be made before the spiritual war can be waged.
