For justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.
The alleged murderer is set free.
I recently watched an episode of T.D. Jakes where he said, “God is not fair…but He is just.” We’ve heard it all of our lives, “Life isn’t fair…”
We want to believe in justice. We put our hopes in it. Victims depend on it. Yet, sometimes injustice is served.
The lives of many people have never seen justice served. They have walked away heart broken and frustrated with the justice system. We, as an American society, like to hold our justice system accountable. We put faith into it, believing that if anything happens to us or our family or friends, that justice would be served. But sometimes it’s not. So then what?
I was angry yesterday. I hadn’t felt that kind of stomach lurching anger in a long time. I wanted to throw the remote control at the television to silence the madness of this world. But it will never stop. A child was murdered and someone who partook in the incident will walk away and become some sort of celebrity.
I want to believe that OJ Simpson, and now Casey Anthony, will live with the guilt, to the brink of insanity, of what they’ve done. God is the Judge and Jury of eternal life. We may not see justice on earth through man or laws, but we can take comfort in knowing that God serves justice on His judgment seat when we face His throne.
“It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them” (Deuteronomy 32:35).
NOTE TO SELF: I have faith that God will serve His justice to those who serve injustice to His people. My God is my avenger, and justice will be restored to those who put their hope and trust in Him.
