As we were waiting for the bus, Daniel questioned me about the words of a song we were listening to. I clarified that they were singing, “God is the Defender of the Weak.” Then I suggested to him that if God passed out business cards, He would have King of King, Lord of Lords, and Defender of the Weak listed as his titles.
Daniel asked what did I mean? I said how throughout the Bible God is described as the champion of those who are powerless or alone.
*A bruised reed He will not break and a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish.
*God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong.
*The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
*The Lord is near to all who call on Him, all to call on Him in truth.
*You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat.
Right before Daniel jumped out to get on the bus, he suggested, “Mom you should write a blog about this.” So I did.
