Monday's Message of Hope

A Plea for Justice!
Monday, May 9, 2022 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

As I was pondering/wondering what to write for this week’s message, I opened my Bible to the Psalms. My favorite psalm of all time is Psalm 84, and I thought I might find words of hope from it. But as I glanced over the pages, I noticed the sub-heading for Psalm 82—A Plea for Justice. It’s only eight verses, so I am going to share all of the King James Version below:

God stands in the congregation of the mighty; he judges among the gods.

How long will you judge unjustly, and show partiality to the wicked? Selah

Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked.

They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness;

All the foundations of the earth are unstable.

I said, “You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High.

But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.”

Arise, O God, judge the earth; for You shall inherit all nations.

With all of the news focusing on America’s judicial branch of government, from the local to the national level, I could not have orchestrated this moment, this Psalm. We desperately need God’s justice. We have seen enough of a combination of man’s corruption and satan’s diabolical perversion of justice.

While the abortion issue is front and center right now, we need justice in all areas of life—the righteous justice coming from our Righteous God to a nation who has in many aspects forsaken the God of the Bible.

This week, let’s cry out for the Lord’s holy and righteous justice, and ask for his righteous judgments to fall on every judge, from the least to the greatest, that they may all come into truth, righteousness, and victory!

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • Have you struggled with the justice we see played out in our country?
  • How does your view of Psalm 82 affect those struggles, if at all?
  • How will this impact your prayer life?

Expecting a hope-filled week, crying out for Justice!

AMEN! I wish everyone would read this Psalm and know God is the righteous judge of all. This country needs to repent of its deep sins of injustice. We all feel it, from the least to the greatest. And everyone who reads this is asked the question what will we pray about this week. My prayers will.

Hi, Janet. Thank you for sharing your heart and for praying for our nation. I am in full agreement. Blessings, Penelope Kaye
