“But You, O God, do see trouble and grief;
You consider it to take it in hand.
The victim commits himself to You;
You are the helper of the fatherless.”
God is considerate of our grief and our problems. God sees our hearts and what we feel. God cares about us and He has us in mind.
And… God takes action on our behalf. He is not an un-involved observer of our lives.
God sees our troubles and our grief and He considers them to take up for us –
- to relieve us
- to intervene for us
- to make a way for us
- to be there for us
- to redeem us
God’s plan has always been one of redemption, intervention, restoration, transformation.
God’s purposes towards us have always been for showing his great love for those who seek Him.
The invitation has always been open to any and to all of us.
Psalm 10:14 also says that those who have been hurt and mistreated commit themselves to the Lord because He is One who take care of them. In this particular verse, the Lord is the helper of the fatherless. How many of us today are fatherless? Divorce, adultery, drugs, alcoholism, workaholism [I made that term up, of course], abuse, death – have all taken so many fathers away from the families. Many have a father in the home, and even mothers, but are without parental guidance because the parent/parents are caught up in the pleasures or the worries of this world. But God is a father to any one of us who needs a true and loving Father. Even those who have wonderful earthly fathers could still use a Heavenly Father who’s love is beyond compare.
God is great and He is loving! He is worth getting to know!
God bless you! ❤
