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)

God is eager to look out for his people.
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.
