"Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation." Psalm 68:5
"...to bring justice to the fatherless..."Isaiah 1:17
O the deep, deep love of the Father to rescue His children so we might be with Him forever! These verses are for the orphans in our world today- He promises to defend the fatherless. And these verses are for all of His sons and daughters. Jesus Christ rose to defend us, to protect us, to bring justice and make us right with Him only by His blood and righteousness. How we desire to share this love story with the orphans of the world. He will rise to their defense and bring them into His Kingdom, His family just as he has adopted those who believe into His family. What a sweet and tender God and Father of mercy.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed un in Christ...even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, ... In love he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace." Ephesians 1:3-7
