Justice is Timely

What would we do if we had a wand of justice that we could use at a moment’s notice? Would we have the wisdom? Would we have the strength to execute justice properly?

I’m going to bet none of us would do it well. How could we keep our own theories out of the way? How would we not put our own influence into the decision.

What is justice and where does it come from?

God listens with a sympathetic ear when we complain about injustice. Whenever we are jolted by life’s unfairness, we should realize that God was bothered by such things long before we were.

God is the one who gave man a sense of justice, to be sure. And, justice delayed seems to make our hearts sick, doesn’t it?

I am a firm believer that God is working in the background at all times creating just paths. Isn’t it God’s goal that all would come to the knowledge of good and evil and choose good?

The truth is we all see it, some just make a choice to deny it so they can live in their wanton pleasures.

What happens when God’s justice moves? Will we be prepared? What if God’s justice seems too severe?

Questions around justice are as old as the ages. I don’t know if we’ve got what it takes to correct evil and repair the damages of injustice. What I do know is this: God is watching. His justice will prevail.

I’m here to help stop childhood rape and victimization. I know God is with me. I wouldn’t stand in my way if I were you.

God is coming.

“Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbors,
pouring it from the wineskin till they are drunk,
so that he can gaze on their naked bodies!
16 You will be filled with shame instead of glory.
Now it is your turn! Drink and let your nakedness be exposed!
The cup from the Lord’s right hand is coming around to you,
and disgrace will cover your glory.

Habakkuk 2:15–16
