And I heard the altar respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments.” Revelation 16:7
Courts across the nation and around the world are making judgments every day. Some are with just one person making the call, while others have juries deciding what is true.
Very often when a judgment is made, there are some that believe that the ruling was incorrect. There have been many times when years later evidence shows up proving the judgment was wrong. This can cause people to question the reliability of the judge and jury, which then often causes questioning of God’s judgments.
As John describes the pouring out of judgments, it is heard some stating that God’s judgments are true and just.
The world does not like when there is a line drawn in the sand as to what is right and what is wrong. It is taught in schools and colleges that right and wrong is subjective to the individual and the circumstances. With this type of thinking, people get angry with God for having a set standard and the idea that He will one day judge every one.
Without a set standard to live by, there is only chaos. God does not live in chaos, nor does He want people to live in chaos, but sets a standard that He lives by. This standard is one of holiness and perfection.
God is perfect love, understands everything perfectly and sees everything. With this ability, God is able to judge everyone and everything with perfect justice. He will never make a mistake. He understands the heart and motives of every action a person makes, whether good or bad.
Although people appear to be getting by with sin today, there will come a day when God will judge each and every person with a perfect and true judgment.
God allows things to occur in your life because of His perfect judgment of what should happen to make you the best you can be. These things occur to prevent a final judgment of condemnation in the end.
Instead of getting angry with God, realize that God is judging with perfection and perfect love. Learn from the judgments God has brought upon you.
Allowing this will prevent you from being cast out by God in the end when Jesus returns and God judges the entire world for eternity. Trust God’s true and just judgments.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will reveal His purposes in events in your life; that you will trust God’s rulings in your life; and that God will make you more like Jesus each day.
