“The LORD tears down the house of an arrogant person, but He protects the property of widows” (Proverbs 15:25, GW).

God will protect the defenseless widow and in His good time, He will punish the insolent bully. When we feel oppressed it's important to remember that God is our defense and that His timing is everything. He will provide what is needed in due time if we have faith in Him and trust Him.

Likewise, if we find ourselves actively running counter to God, we can also anticipate that we will feel the effect of His discipline. Discipline that, ideally, will cause us to change our behavior for the better.

Are you developing the habit of defending the defenseless?
