God Brings Justice to Our World
“You say, ‘I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.’” (Ps. 75:2-5 NIV)
No matter what time period we live on this earth, since the time sin entered into the human life, we see ongoing injustices occurring. Some of these injustices we see in our country and other countries in this world. It is when we personally experience an injustice we experience its full ugliness. Perhaps you have experienced an injustice. How is one to handle it?
God has spoken clearly in Psalm 75, it is He who is judge. It is Him who will bring justice. He performs His justice with complete equity or righteousness. He will do it in His time.
It may seem the world is coming apart. COVID-19 was and is a vivid reminder how fragile the world is. Yet God says it is I that hold the world together.
It is God who deals with the arrogant and the wicked. In a sense, they can “blow their own horn” but “it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.” (Ps. 75:8)
Knowing that God will bring justice, as what has been mentioned above, how can we not bring praise to Him. The Psalmist says, “We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds.”
God the judge is near us when injustice occurs. His presence surrounds us and brings to us hope, healing, and freedom from the ugliness of injustice. Let us tell others of His greatness!
