I look after foreigners and I help the fatherless and the widow.

Psalm 146:9 
Yahweh preserves the foreigners.
He upholds the fatherless and widow,
but the way of the wicked he turns upside down.

God's heart is always out for the underdog. He is always looking to protect those who cannot protect themselves. That is just part of His character. In today's promise, Psalm 146:9 says that God looks after foreigners in a strange land and helps those who are fatherless and widowed.

The New Living Translation says Psalm 146:9 this way... The Lord protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked. (NLT) If you are in a position where you feel weak and vulnerable in this life, be comforted in knowing that God is watching over you.

If you are living in a place where you don't feel that you belong, God will protect you. If you feel fatherless and need a Father's love, God will be a Father to you. If you are widowed and battling with feelings of loneliness, He will be your husband.  Whatever need you might have, be encouraged in knowing that God cares for you and He will look after you.
