Justice will come

8 If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they. 9 Moreover the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field. Ecclesiastes 5:8-9

Each day we see the injustice of governments against people and people against people. God is not sleeping. The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. (Psalm 33:13) He sees what is going on. In His time He will judge the injustice of the world.

We sometimes (well maybe most of the time) get frustrated with what we see happening in the world. Oppression of the poor and weak is not new; it occurred during Solomon’s time. We need to take heart and believe what God says in His Word. He tells us in His Word that this will take place when people do “their own thing”.

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold Matthew 24:12.

Sin is rampant, just look around, people everywhere are calling good evil and evil good.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 

There are many verses in the Bible that tell us God will take care of the injustice in His time.

O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself. Psalm 94:1 

And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard. Micah 5:15 

God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies. Nahum 1:2 

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Romans 12:19 

Take heart dear one, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 

What are we to do? As Christians we need to:
Turn to Him
Trust Him
Obey Him

Have a blessed day,
