Psalms 10:18 “To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.”
judge (Strong’s 8199) to judge, pronounce sentence, vindicate, rule, govern, litigate or punish;
fatherless (Strong’s 3490) to be lonely, a bereaved person or orphan;
oppressed (Strong’s 1790) crushed, injured, afflicted or oppressed;
man (Strong’s 582) a mortal or man; (from Strong’s 605) frail, feeble, sick or incurable;
earth (Strong’s 776) to be firm, earth, country, ground or land
oppress (Strong’s 6206) to awe, dread, harass or shake terribly.
Remember that He is that that One that judges all and everything fairly and completely. So realize that His Judgment and His Timing will happen according to His Plan. He will take you in especially during your loneliest times and when you feel oppressed and bogged down by the things of this world. Remember always that you are going through the physical, but still have Him in you and are very spiritual. The time you have here is only temporary, but with Him it is forever and there is nothing that you can overcome through Him. Remind yourself that He has defeated death by the Son and you can claim that victory today if you accept Him and let Him be there for you.
Let Him speak to you through the Word. When you make the effort to get more into what He has to say about what He wants from you, what will happen and what has happened in the past for your example. He wrote it all so you can better understand Him and know His Plan in the Word.
By talking with Him you realize His Presence, His Peace and you can be yourself. Come to Him with a clean heart always giving Him all the negativity and things of the past that may keep you from experiencing joy with Him. Let Him be the first One you call when you need the answer to everything always using common sense and good judgment.
Finally, He is your Dearest Friend so check in with that One that you have this good relationship and let Him know you love Him. Thank Him for the good things like your family, friends, food, shelter and peace of mind. He is so happy you are sticking with Him and progressing in Him. He really cares about you.
Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,
at Your service
