Safety and justice

The Lord is a safe place for the oppressed— a safe place in difficult times. ~ Psalm 9:9 (CEB)

Won’t God provide justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he be slow to help them? ~ Luke 18:7 (CEB)

KEY IDEA:
God is eager to look out for his people.
PRAYER:
God, it is so frustrating to see bad people get ahead at the expense of good people. You understand that frustration better than anyone. At least that is how I read the story of Jesus in the gospels. But in the end justice wins. Save me from the doubts that come when I see how vulnerable people are treated by the powerful. I am going to trust that you are the source of justice and safety. Amen.
