Deuteronomy 32:4, 2 Thessalonians 1:6 NIV 2011
He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you.
God is the Rock was the central theme of the Song of Moses. Deuteronomy 31:30, “And Moses recited the words of this song from beginning to end in the hearing of the whole assembly of Israel.” After finishing his song, Moses climbed Mount Nebo, saw the Promised Land and died there. God justly allowed him to see the land He’d promised the Israelites. Paul wrote to encourage the church at Thessalonica. 2 Thessalonians 1:4, “…we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trails you are enduring.” God justly punishes unrepentant sinners in His perfect timing. God is just.
How often do we wrestle with the injustice or loss we feel in our daily lives? At a certain point in my life, I felt a bit of anger when our sweet Mandi walked into eternity, despite the prayers for her healing. I knew Jesus healed the man with the shriveled hand in Mark 3:1. He gave me understanding about why He did not heal our precious little girl. When I ultimately asked Him to help me heal, He gently guided me back to Him. My Holy God is always just.
When injustice prevails, whom will we choose?
God is just,
