Passage: Psalm 34:15-22 (NIV)
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
and his ears are attentive to their cry;
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to blot out their name from the earth.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
The righteous person may have many troubles,
but the Lord delivers him from them all;
he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.
Evil will slay the wicked;
the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
The Lord will rescue his servants;
no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
There is justice in the Kingdom of God! There is mercy in the Kingdom of God! May we trust in the Lord for deliverance. May we trust in the Lord for protection. May we find comfort in knowing that He hears our cries. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
