Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Lord, you see the trouble and the distress, and you will do something about. You hit evil in the mouth and shatter the teeth of their plans. The poor can count on you, and so can orphans. You offer them hope, and you pay attentionto their cries for help. You defend everyone else in need, so that no one on earth can terrify others again. The wicked brag about their deepest desires. Greedy people hate and curse you, they are too proud to turn to you or even think about you. But I know Lord you are able to keep the upright safe in the time of testing, and to keep evil-doers under punishment till the day of judging. Let me not be ashamed of the Gospel nor let the enemy triumph over me. I must be a true witness of what you can do through a wreck like me. Jesus, you heard my cry for help, my groan of affliction, and defended me against the enemy. So many times where sin had me in a corner yet you pulled me out and put me on green pastures. As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will take His stand on the earth.
