The wicked are always looking for ways to kill good people, but the Lord will not let the wicked defeat them. He will not let good people be judged guilty. Do what the Lord says, and wait for his help. He will reward you and give you the land he promised. You will see the wicked being forced to leave. I once saw a wicked man who was powerful, he was like a strong, healthy tree. But then he was gone. I looked for him, but I could not find him. Psalm 37:33-36
I’ve seen so much injustice in the world, and if it bothers me, think how much it bothers God. Sometimes I think God must be busy when He allows things to happen that are so blatantly wrong or evil. But God doesn’t miss a thing! He keeps good records of every evil deed.
He’s not a dictator! He gave us all the ability to make choices, and although those choices affect so many people, it’s still our choice to make. But in our ability to choose, God would have us choose right.
It’s not a hard test! God didn’t say, “Do whatever you want and it will be alright.” No, He gave us laws to govern our choices. In Deuteronomy 30:19, He made it very simple; “Today I am giving you a choice of two ways. And I ask heaven and earth to be witnesses of your choice. You can choose life or death. The first choice will bring a blessing. The other choice will bring a curse. So choose life! Then you and your children will live.”
We can choose to live life for and with God or for and with the world, but regardless of our choice, it’s ours to make. God is merely judging us, keeping track of what we choose to do. Please don’t blame Him when bad things happen as a result of your decisions.
The good news is this; we have an advocate, Jesus. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all of it! His blood will cover it all.
“Oh Precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow. No other fount I know. Nothing but the blood of Jesus.”
Thank You Lord for the gift to serve You. May Your Kingdom come on the earth, that You may be lifted up and glorified. You are just in all Your ways and we know that You will direct our steps and keep our feet from falling into traps. It’s in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
