Righteousness and Justice
Psalm 33:4-5 state, "For the Word of the Lord is right, and all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord."
These verses really stuck out to me when I read them because there were a couple of things that happened to my daughter recently that I thought were unfair! I was literally up almost all night one night because I was so hurt for my daughter. As a mommy, I love righteousness and justice...especially when it comes to my children!!! It really lifted me up to read these verses and meditate on the fact that God loves righteousness and justice. If I care that much about my 6 year old being "left out" or being called a loser, how much more do you think God cares about His children (us) when we are not treated with justice. This verse is a clear reminder to me that He does care and that He sees EVERY time we are treated unfairly.
So I pray this can be an encouragement to all of us that are treated unfairly. Whether it is in traffic, at home, at work, or anywhere else, always remember that God isn't "okay" with injustice. He loves righteousness and justice and will soon and very soon make everything right and just for each of His children. Until then, may we rest in the TRUTH of God's Word. Psalm 37 is "extra credit" for those of you who want an extra boost on this topic! It has soooooo many beautiful truths! I'll give you a taste..."Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart....Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret--it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the earth....But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace...."
