The Champion of Justice

Observation:

What are the things that the Lord does, for which the Psalmist greatly praises Him?

Deeper Reflection
GOD KEEPS FAITH FOREVER; HE FULFILS ALL HIS PROMISES (v.6b). Therefore, people everywhere can put their trust in God, look to Him for help, and always hope in Him (vv.3-6). It is futile to put our trust in other people − even those with earthly power and authority. They cannot ultimately deliver us (v.3), because they are transient (v.4). We should instead trust in God the Creator of the universe, because He is eternal (v.6).God does justice! He is the Champion of justice! Verses 7 to 9 tell us clearly that God’s heart beats with compassion for “the oppressed”, “the hungry”, “the prisoners”, “the blind”, “those who are bowed down”, “the righteous”, “the sojourners”, “the widow” and “the fatherless”. Therefore, God executes justice on their behalf, feeds them, sets them free from captivity and bondage, gives them sight, lifts them up from depression and despondency, shows them His love, watches over and protects them, and supports and defends them. God cares deeply for the weak, the poor, the powerless, the ill-treated, the hopeless, the disabled, the burdened, the trapped, the minorities, the destitute and the defenceless. God acts directly as well as through His agents to help them. Of all people, God’s people are to be His faithful representatives in their society and in the world!Brothers and sisters, do our hearts beat likewise for such people? What have we done to help and support the poor and needy in our land? Will we both pray for them and take decisive action on their behalf? What will you begin to do or continue doing in order to serve them?
Application:

How can I reflect God’s heart and His ways to society and indeed the world?

Prayer:
Write a prayer to God as your response from your meditation on and application of the Scriptures.
