“The works of His hands are truth and justice; all His precepts are sure. They are upheld forever and ever; they are performed in truth and uprightness.” (Psalm 111:7-8)
Think for a moment what this says. God is true and just. Anyone who says otherwise is denying the truth. You need never defend the Lord, for He is just, but do stand in His justice and trust that He will work all things together for good for those who love Him. Know that this is the Lord’s creation and that all things are in His hands. He will lead you into uprightness.
Lord, people will say to me that the way things are is not just. That is true. But they often mean that they will deny You because they blame You for the way things are. Keep me from this kind of thinking that I may stand firm in Your truth. Teach me to walk in Your justice and to hold fast to Your Word of truth that I may not be led astray by those who promote their own idea of justice.
Lord Jesus, You came to provide what was needed for all who believe. Guide me according to the precepts You teach to live into the life to which I have been called by grace. Help me to never bend to the ideas of this world and yet give mercy as You give mercy. Lead me in the journey of becoming like You that I may abide all the days of my life in Your presence. Amen.
