Psalm 146:7 WEB

who executes justice for the oppressed;
who gives food to the hungry.

Promise #80: I provide food for the hungry and justice for the oppressed.

Our God is good. He has a heart of compassion for the marginalised, the oppressed and all who need His help. As we read in 1 Corinthians 13:6 describing the character and nature of love from the Amplified Bible .. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. (AMP)

It is frustrating to see evil prevail around us. I think God has placed something in the human heart that longs to see justice for the oppressed. Be encouraged in knowing that this desire comes from God because our Father does not rejoice in evil, but He always rejoices when justice wins out.

Today’s promise simply reminds us that our God is for the underdog and the hurting. We read in 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 how He has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the strong, the poor of this world over the rich, and the foolish things of the world to shame the wise. No matter what injustice you are facing today personally or what injustice you see around you, be comforted in knowing that our Father understands and He rejoices when justice wins out.
