Day 16: Stand Up For Justice

“I stood up for justice and the right; don’t leave me to the mercy of my oppressors. Take the side of Your servant, good God; don’t let the godless take advantage of me. I can’t keep my eyes open any longer, waiting for You to keep Your promise to set everything right. Let Your love dictate how You deal with me; teach me from Your textbook on life. I’m Your servant—help me understand what that means, the inner meaning of Your instructions. It’s time to act, God; they’ve made a shambles of Your revelation! Yea-Saying God, I love what You command, I love it better than gold and gemstones; Yea-Saying God, I honor everything You tell me, I despise every deceitful detour.” —Psalm 119:121-128 (MSG)

Devotional Thought for Today: 

When we stand up for justice and the right, God comes to our aid. God is always with us, and therefore we will not be taken advantage of. God’s promises always come to pass, although we humanly sometimes think that His answers are delaying. His marvelous love and His words will always define how He deals with us. As we walk with God in deep intimacy, He will lead us into deep things related to His holy instructions. God deals with people who dishonor His truth in a timely manner. We must honor God’s every command and despise deception.
