16 The little that the righteous person has is better
than the abundance of many wicked people.
17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord supports the righteous.
18 The Lord watches over the blameless all their days,
and their inheritance will last forever.
19 They will not be disgraced in times of adversity;
they will be satisfied in days of hunger.
What an auspicious reality that the God of the universe so strongly supports His righteous people. The meagerness of our lives is sufficient for His attention. Regardless of the circumstances, we find ourselves in, His nearness and affections will overshadow the evil of our times and provide abundant sustenance to strengthen our righteous resolve.
Father, You alone are the one I look to and who brings strength to my life in days of uncertainty and difficulty. Thank you for your ever-present nearness and your divine resources that sustain my days when nothing else satisfies. Thank you for watching over my life and taking away my shame. May the banner of your eternal inheritance cover my life and efforts today. Amen.
