Fifth Friday of Lent

But the LORD is with me, like a mighty champion: my persecutors will stumble, they will not triumph. In their failure they will be put to utter shame, to lasting, unforgettable confusion. O LORD of hosts, you who test the just, who probe mind and heart, Let me witness the vengeance you take on them, for to you I have entrusted my cause. Sing to the LORD, praise the LORD, For he has rescued the life of the poor from the power of the wicked!

God is our champion. He will help us overcome every obstacle and rescue us from every trial through His Love, Mercy, and Grace. He is constantly watching over us and protecting us from evil. He will never abandon us. He may allow us to be tested and our hearts and minds probed, but He does so because of free will. He will not force us or others to sing His praises and as such evil creeps into the world through our sins and in turn we find ourselves persecuted by others and challenged by circumstances beyond our control. However, God is with us... always at our side to lift us up when we fall on hard times and rescue us from the power of the wicked.

Do we turn to God when we are faced with difficulties in our lives? Do we trust that God will protect us from our foes and save us from our trials? In what ways do we sing to God and praise Him for the good He has done for us?

O Lord, our mighty champion, rescue our poor lives.
