30 Dec God Is Fair
S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
And I heard the altar respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments.”
Once again, these passages in Revelation have to do with a vision John the Beloved had concerning the future. So much of the interpretation has to do with the human interpretation of what John was talking about. But this verse speaks of the response in heaven when one of God’s judgments was unleashed during the so-called “Tribulation Period” that is still to come. The response from heaven was, “God Is Fair!”
Let’s move away from this passage and talk about the fact that “God Is Fair!” Often we decide that God is not fair because something that happens to us personally seems unfair. Not finding the proper person to blame in the situation, we end up blaming God because, well, it just wasn’t FAIR! But that’s not on God. That’s on this thing called life and original sin. The fact that we are living in a fallen world is not God’s fault. If you want to blame God because you don’t like the system He set up, that in itself isn’t fair because none of us have the whole picture, and we certainly don’t know the future. Job tried to blame God and got an earful from God himself. And when he did, Job repented. No matter how unfair a situation may seem, “God Is Fair!”
I’m grateful today for life itself. I’m grateful that even though I’m living in a fallen world and sin surrounds me, I still have life, and I have it to the fullest because of You. Amen
