“Because of the oppression of the afflicted and the groaning of the poor, I will now rise up,” says the Lord. “I will put in a safe place the one who longs for it.” Psalm 12:5 (HCSB)
In days like these, with a skyrocketing orphan population and natural disasters creating more misery then anyone knows what to do with, I’m so thankful for Psalm 12:5. It’s just one small verse, but it gives huge assurances. Most of all, it assures me that – though staying alert and involved is really important – the results aren’t up to me. He is the One who rises up. He is the One who knows the safe places and who needs them the most.
Behold: He is. And I am not.
It’s a huge relief to my heart today, and motivation to do whatever I can to serve His plan here on my planet.
