"He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" Micah 6:8

We live in a world full of injustice. God gives free will and sometimes it is exercised in a way that things happen to people, by people, that never should happen. In those times when one is left reeling from injustice we know that our God will be the Rock of our lives. He will hold us securely and He will judge with righteousness and integrity.

We are called to act justly, have mercy and walk humbly with our God. (Micah 6:8). Though it sometimes doesn’t feel fair, our part is to allow Him to be the Judge and to rely firmly on Him as the steadfast hope of our lives.

“Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay”, says the Lord.” Romans 12:19

Father God, thank You that one of Your names is the Lord of justice. You will act justly. I trust You today to handle the injustices of my life and to give me wisdom. You alone are the One True Lawgiver and Judge who alone is to be feared. Your word tells us that Your justice is like the great deep. You know and care about all the injustices I experience. I can depend on You as I invite You to bring redemption to the hurts in my life. Lord God, I ask today that I would not seek revenge over those who have shown injustice. Fill me with Your Spirit as I trust You. May my heart be refreshed today as I lean on Your holiness and integrity. Allow my mind and heart to be immersed in Your peace. I lay my critical attitudes down and I ask You to be the Judge and to make me wise as I go forward. I rest securely in Your love and mercy. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
