our King...defender of the weak

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Vindicate the weak and fatherless;
Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
Rescue the weak and needy;
Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

Psalm 82:3-4

Do you know that our God is a just ruler..a righteous and beautiful King?! In Psalm 82, God commands the unjust rulers to stop showing partiality to the wicked and to defend the cause of the poor and fatherless. The widow, the orphan and the outcast are constantly on our King's heart. He is not a far-off ruler. He is a King who loves and protects His precious people.

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been experiencing the fire of our King's heart. His heart burns to call leaders to righteousness. Rulers of nations are commanded to defend their people...especially the ones who cannot defend themselves. I've been praying these verses in Psalm 82...speaking justice and deliverance over the weak and commanding the rulers of this world to defend His precious ones. I know that our King is listening, and I know that His heart is overcome with love for the widow, the orphan and the oppressed. He will rescue them! He is so good!

Would you pray these verses along with me? Would you ask our King to act quickly on behalf of the weak and needy? Would you speak these verses out as a command to those who do not represent our generous and righteous King?

Oh King Jesus, defender of the weak, we love You! We love Your ways! We are so grateful that you are a righteous and generous King. Deliver Your People, oh Lord. Rescue Your needy ones. Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. Bring justice and peace to your precious children.

Oh Father, thank you that You are the Defender of the weak. Thank you Jesus that your heart is about rescuing Sarah's precious R! Please bring justice Lord, and bring Your children home-- to mamas and daddys to call their own.

Love you friend,
