Let God Bring Justice Into Your Life
God promises that if we trust in Him, He will pay us back for all the unfair things that have been done to us (Is. 61: 7-9). Sometimes, I'm tempted to fight the battle in my own strength. Evil was done to me and our family. I was betrayed. I was lied to. I was deceived. It takes faith for me to take the "high road" and watch what God will do. As Joel Osteen would put it, "If you will do it God's way, He'll not only fight your battles for you, but in the end, you'll come out better off than you were before." The Bible says, "God is a just God and He will settle and solve the cases of His people" (Heb. 10:30). That tells me God is the vindicator. As I turn this matter of injustice over to Him, He'll bring justice into my life. "Lord, You know how hurt I am by this person. But you are a supernatural God. You can take the evil and turn it around. You'll pay back for all the wrongs done. You are going to settle the case. You got me covered. I'm going to leave the door open, counting on You to make it up to me and our family. I'll just keep forgiving and loving. I know You will prosper me wherever I go from here, and You'll bring justice in my life. In Jesus' name. Amen."
