Today’s devotion is based on Psalm 82:1-3.
God presides in the heavenly council;
in the assembly of the gods he gives his decision:
‘You must stop judging unjustly;
you must no longer be partial to the wicked!
Defend the rights of the poor and the orphans;
be fair to the needy and the helpless.’
God presides in the heavenly council; in the assembly of the gods, he gives his decision. How much more does God do to protect those in his care. He defends the weak and poor. He rescues the needy. He judges those who are unjust. And he is completely, totally on the side of those who love him. How lucky you are to have such a protector! And because he does these things for you, you are now enabled to do these things for those around you.
Please pray with me the prayer for today. Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things keep me, Lord, in your protective care. Guide me in your ways, so that others may learn of you also. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
