“The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness without iniquity (injustice), Just and upright is He. Deuteronomy 32:4 AMP
One of the most difficult things in the life is to serve as a mediator when people you know have an issue. Usually, right or wrong becomes a personality issue because you believe that the individual you consider morally upright could never be the person at fault. When it’s time to hear the matter, you hear but don’t take the time to listen. After all, why do you need to listen? You did not come to the table with an open mind; because, you have already judged the matter and concluded who is at fault.
Unfortunately, that attitude is so prevalent in disputes, that some people are judged guilty before the first words are uttered in the mediation process. If you find yourself in the unpopular position of perceived error, you would long for justice. You might never get justice in the court of human minds but there is one place where justice prevails; that place is the courts of God because God is a just God.
In 1 Samuel 24, while David was running from Saul, Saul took refuge in a cave where David and his men were hiding. Saul was comfortable and went to sleep but David’s men saw an opportunity to destroy Saul. David told them that it was totally unacceptable to kill the servant of the Lord. Instead, David cut a section of Saul’s robe. When Saul left the cave, David called out to Saul. He directed Saul’s attention to his robe to let him know that he had the opportunity to take his life. Then David said, “May the Lord be the judge and render judgment between me and you; and may He see and plead my cause and vindicate me by saving me from your hand.” Verse 15.
David was hunted by Saul without cause but David decided to let God, render judgment. He knew that God is morally right and fair. He knew that God is not swayed by public opinion; he knew that He is not swayed by position or status. In Romans 12, the Apostle Paul gave some advice, he said, “Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord.” Verse 19. When life gets difficult and you want justice, do like David and leave it to the righteousness of God. He is just; He will do what is right.
Thought for Today: Friend, let God take care of your issues.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
