I was reminded of these truths when reading in Psalm 10 recently: “You are the defender/helper of orphans” and “You will bring justice to the orphans”.
What a comforting reminder! I have seen His faithfulness to this promise, and yet, how easy it is to forget when faced with a challenging or discouraging situation. How easy it is to stress and fret instead of trusting in the Lord’s promises. HE is the defender and the helper of orphans. HE is the one who brings them justice. All we have to do is be faithful to follow the Lord’s leadings and guidance, and then it is our responsibility to surrender the rest into His faithful hands and receive His peace. We are called to trust Him to keep His promises and to fulfill them in the way that He knows is best. His ways are higher than our ways, and His timing is quite often not our timing. But He is always good. He is always in control. He is always faithful.
