Is God on your side? Most of us (who believe in God) like to think so, and history is full of nations and causes invoking God’s name as endorsing their cause. But the better question is whether you are on God’s side or not, because God favors the righteous and sets his face against those who do evil. 
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:15-18 ESV)
God’s eyes and ears are attuned to the cries of the righteous, but be careful with this thought because the righteous can only be those who are surrendered to God’s will, serving God’s purpose. Righteousness is not proven by our views of good and evil, but by God’s own nature of good and his rejection of evil. God hears the cries of those who are following his will, submitted to him and God sees the broken hearted and crushed in spirit people and draws near to them; God cares for those who are crushed and broken. And God opposes those who do evil. What words and sophistries we use to prove our acts are good, or our goals are good, so our acts are justified have no power to persuade God. Evil is not the way God accomplishes his will and someday even the “memory” of evil will disappear from the earth. So even if you are feeling the weight of the world (and it is pretty heavy with evil and broken lives) God sees, God hears, and God is bringing his deliverance to us. Even if we have to wait for the fullness of that deliverance and the end of all evil, God is with us. You are not alone in this, nor have your cries been for nothing. So hold on!

Lord hear our cries, draw near and comfort those who are suffering from the evil of this world, and bring your deliverance to the earth!
