O Lord , you hear the desire of the afflicted.
O Lord , you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.
All the praises and honor be to the Heavenly Father in Jesus’s precious and matchless name !
The proximity and comfort of the Almighty God to the oppressed and afflicted is revealed to us through the above subject verses. The Living God is ever present with all those who call upon Him; especially with those who are afflicted, fatherless, oppressed etc. He gives us the strength to move forward breaking the bondage of the stagnant life. As the verse says, the Lord hears the desires of the afflicted and also incline His ear to the fatherless. Further, for the Lord is the father to the fatherless, He brings justice to them. Moreover, the following verse clearly states what has been said and also reveals that He is the defender of the widows.
‘A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. ‘Psalms 68:5
Surely, the Lord Almighty hears the cry of the afflicted and strengthens their hearts. The scriptures says that the Lord is our Rock, our Fortress and our Deliverer. So when the Lord is on our side, what can a mere mortal do? Let our trust and faith be in Him who has the power to cast people into hell.
In Jesus’ matchless name all the glory be to the Holy Father. Amen.
