At my lowest point, when things are at their worst, I can rely on one fact. No matter how it looks. No matter what is happening. I can rely on one truth.
God, Who can do anything, Who is the over-riding power of the Universe, and Who knows the past, present, and future, is JUST.
All of us can look back in our lives and find a memory of playing some kind of game. And every one of us has at one time or another cried out when the game goes against us, “That’s not fair!” Let’s say you’re learning a game from an older sibling and all of a sudden the “rules” change to insure they win. “That’s not fair!”
We’ve been praying through the Navigator’s tool “30 Days of Praying the Names and Attributes of God.” Praying to a Holy, Pure, and Righteous God can (and should) give us each a wonderful assurance.
When we go to the Lord in prayer, He is absolutely fair. God is never mean. He’s never moody or subject to emotional outbursts. We can know that He is always, always consistent. He’s a steady, stable, and secure God. That’s His character.
quoting from the Navigator tool:
God is just.
God is righteous and holy, fair, and equitable in all things. We can trust Him to always do what is right.
We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks, For Your name is near; Men declare Your wondrous works. “When I select an appointed time, It is I who judge with equity.” “The earth and all who dwell in it melt; It is I who have firmly set its pillars. Selah.” “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn; Do not lift up your horn on high, Do not speak with insolent pride.’ For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes exaltation; But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another. Psalm 75:1–7
Through Jesus Christ, God offers us total access to His presence. We can always come to Him in confidence – confidence based on the fact that we know Jesus… and the fact that Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection have given us the grace to go before God with assurance that God will always love us and give us only the very best – for our ultimate good.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. “Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? “Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him! Matthew 7:7–11
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zechariah 9:9
Think about it.
