Sometimes I just want to scream the injustice from the mountain tops!
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
But that is not my job, it’s God’s!
Have you ever been unjustly accused of something? Have you ever had harm done to you and carried shame around? Have you ever been the topic of a gossip chain? Have you ever been in need and your needs were totally overlooked? Have you ever played a part of doing these things to someone else? Have you ever?
I can tell you my answer to these questions would be YES. Whether the unjust was done to me or to someone else, I am learning that it’s not my place to be the justifier. My only part is to try my hardest not to be unjust to others and to run to God when the unjust is towards me. Shouting it from the mountain tops only shows that my faith in God is weak, not trusting that He alone is my justifier.
Lord, help me not be consumed when I am treated unjustly and help me be aware of my every action so that I will not treat others unjust. I want to walk this earth in the way that You set the example. Open my eyes, open my heart and hold me through it. Amen!
