When something wrong is done to us, be it illegal or immoral, the conscience God placed within us cries out for justice.
If someone stole your car, we want the police to find it so we can have it back.
If someone breaks into our home and steals our belongings, we want the insurance company to compensate us.
If someone tells some awful lies about us on social media, we want them to delete what they have said. However, when we are the villain and not the victim, the person who did wrong rather than the person wronged, we tend to want grace for ourselves instead of justice. The same is true of how many people relate to God. We want God to give justice to our enemies, but grace to us even though we have acted as his enemies.
Through the cross of Jesus, God made a way for Himself to receive justice and us to receive grace. Like us, God deserves justice. Because of our sinful condition and sinful actions, though, our impending day in God’s courtroom seems utterly hopeless for anything other than a guilty verdict and a sentence to eternity in torment.
In light of our obvious guilt, if God were to declare us anything but guilty, he would cease to be a just and good God. Wait, this God of ours is GOOD, so He figured out a way for our sins to be forgiven.
THE BLOOD OF HIS SON ON THE CROSS was brutal, and to Him we were worth it.
Our JUSTICE WARRIOR steps in ready to declare not guilty.
If you don’t know this warrior, it’s probably time to meet Him.
Your soul will not find it’s rest until you do – and if there is injustice in your story, I ask you today will you allow Jesus to redeem it.
He alone is the only one that can right this wrong. This warrior knows you better than you know yourself.
He knows your true identity since He placed within you the name: image bearer of God.
YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM
Friend, remember JUSTICE is more than a word in God’s world.
I PRAY STRENGTH OVER YOU TODAY AS YOU LEAN INTO THE REAL YOU AND
THE REAL GOD WHO IS READY TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT IN YOUR LIFE.
