God Is Just

Okay, let's admit it, how many times have we said, "It's just not fair?" Probably too many to count, right? Honestly, life is not fair, but God is.

In the last post, I talked about how the wicked seem to prosper while the righteous seem to suffer. (That sounds a little bit like a few of the psalms, doesn't it?) Sometimes, it can seem like God is not being fair. Many times it seems like the wicked are being rewarded and the righteous are being punished. But the truth is God loves us, and He is just. Sure, the wicked seem to have everything, but they are missing the most important thing of all. Their riches won't save them from an eternity in hell. Their fame won't keep them from the burning flames. In actuality, they have so little. Haven't you ever wondered why so many of "the greats" end up committing suicide? Their lives have no joy because they don't know the Lord. Neither their money nor their fame can bring them happiness. It's sad if you really think about it.

God has a plan. It is a good plan, and it is a just plan. Do I know all the details? No, but as Roger Bennett (former pianist for The Cathedrals and Legacy Five) once wrote, "I've read the back of the Book, and we win!" That's all we need to know. God will take care of us. He will give us what we need. He will give us what's best for us even if it's not necessarily what we want. Trust in Him. He's on our side.
