Perfect Justice

“Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from Your law. -Psalm 119:150

The psalmist’s enemies are within reach to do him harm. He cries out for the Lord to help him. Although physically the wicked close in around him, spiritually speaking they stand at Hell’s door. The unrepentant are far from their Creator. Choosing to rebel against God’s law, they subvert His authority for personal autonomy. Some evildoers even live among the sheep, disguised like one of them, but they are wolves to the core. Jesus said to be alert to these snares. The tares must remain with the wheat until harvest time. On that Great Judgment Day there will be threshing, to winnow out what is pure and lasting, from what will be burned up. God is Judge who will deliver His people in His perfect time. The Lord may provide relief with temporary deliverances now, but one day there will be a final reckoning when God delivers His Church from all that is unjust. Praise God!

Grace upon grace,


Growing deeper: Matthew 13:24-30; 36-43; 1 Peter 2:21-25

  1. I am amazed and convicted of the pride that wants justice, my rights ! But,.. I read the scripture you pointed out in1Peter 2, how my Lord did not reply, nor use his glorious power for vengeance sake. Lots of room to grow, lots of mercy needed. But my God shall supply all my/your needs. Good news.
