Psalm 146:7b-10 Our True Help
The Lord frees the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down.
The Lord loves the godly.
The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He cares for the orphans and widows,
but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
The Lord will reign forever.
He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations. Praise the Lord!
Pause in his presence
Lenten Reflection: God values things that are not worldly. In fact, what the Lord values is typically just the opposite of what society values. Remember, Jesus turned things upside down when he came to earth the first time and it appears he is doing it before he returns again. God is going to bring good out of this negative situation, because he has promised to help those who call upon his name. This is all a part of his plan to draw his creation to himself. We must care about the things God values. Now is our moment. We should have plenty of time to care about helping people come to salvation in Christ.
Prayer: Lord, you amaze me with your goodness. In even this hard place, I see you reaching for hearts and calling people to trust you. You are my God. May I do my part to be a helper for your Kingdom. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
