Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will listen to their cries and comfort them. You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed, so people can no longer terrify them. Psalm 10: 17-18 NLT
Do you remember ever feeling completely helpless?
What happened to cause such feelings?
What did you do?
If you talked to God at that time, what did you say?
Do you feel that God heard your cries?
How did you get out of your situation or are you still there?
Psalm 10 ends on a message of hope. God does hear our cries for help. God listens to us. God comforts us. God brings justice to those who are helpless. God knows who the orphans and the oppressed are. God will provide for us, for the helpless so that others will not longer terrify their lives.
May you remember this when you feel oppressed, helpless or even hopeless. May God hear your cries, comfort you and bring you justice.
