God helps the weak

“He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle. He will bring justice to all who have been wronged” (Isaiah 42:3, NLT).

Most of us know from personal experience the meaning of the old saying, “adding insult to injury,” either from people or life in general. It seems troubles come in multiples and sometimes we find our friends are like Job’s—not really friends and not helpful. But this is when we need love and comfort the most.

This prophetic verse about Jesus tells us how he feels toward people who are hurting and vulnerable. Because of what he experienced, he is truly touched by our pain. When we are betrayed, he feels it. Bringing justice to all who have been wronged—making everything right—is something Jesus will do not only in the future, but what he does now for all those who turn to him with their needs. His heart is always for us, especially when we’re flickering like a used up candle.
