God Is Just
June 24, 2020

We pray to a loving Father, but he also is a righteous Judge who creates and upholds laws. God has created natural laws like gravity. No matter what happens, that law never changes. He also has created spiritual laws and precepts that never change as well.  He operates and judges based on the laws and principles that he has set in place.  When we come to him, the Bible says we should come humbly and boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy, knowing that God is always good, righteous, and fair.  King David states in Psalms 9:7-8“But the Lord abides forever; He has established His throne for judgment, and He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.”  Job also says, “Surely, God will not act wickedly, and the Almighty will not pervert justice.” (Job 34:12)

When you begin to feel overwhelmed by the corruption in the world today, focus on the fact that Father God is just.  Reflect on His goodness, and consider this:

God Will Fight on the Behalf of the Oppressed
“For the cause of the oppressed and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will bring safety to him who yearns.” – Psalm 12:5

An Expiration Date is set to Remove the Presence of Sin
“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.  But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.” – 2 Peter 3:10, 13

No One is Getting Away with Wicked Actions
“And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.” – Revelation 20:12-13

“Father God, I exalt you because righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. I praise your holy name. I know that you see the depravity and immorality of our world.  You hear the cry of the oppressed and will fight on the behalf of the afflicted.  Father, I ask you to raise up righteous lawmakers, judges, government officials, police officers, etc., who will courageously stand for what is right. I pray that you would reveal your glory and power in the earth, that will cause people to repent and seek your face.  In Jesus’ name I pray – Amen.”
