There are a lot of things that I believe to be unjust or unfair in this world, and there are times when I question why a good God would allow such injustice on the earth. But it’s in those times when I have to remind myself that God is good and He is just. He weeps right alongside those who mourn, those who are broken and hurting. God’s heart breaks for those who are in desperate need of Him.
With my limited human eyesight, I can tend to wonder what God’s plan is when the injustices of this world make themselves known. But I choose to believe that God is just.
Let’s reflect on a few passages from God’s Word:
God is just and fair.
Everything that God does is just. He is always fair. He rules and reigns with justice.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy;
they are established forever and ever,
to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.
God deals fairly with all of mankind.
There is no one better than another. God judges all mankind under the same standard of justice and righteous that He carries. He will execute justice on all mankind while seated on His throne in heaven.
But the Lord reigns forever,
executing judgment from his throne.
He will judge the world with justice
and rule the nations with fairness.
The Lord is not in a hurry to execute justice.
God’s timing is different than ours. We get so impatient wanting to see justice on the earth and in our own lives. But God promises that justice will come. God is patient and loving toward mankind and desires that none would perish.
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (2 Peter 3:8-9)
