Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Just.
We know our God is a just God, meaning He is always “guided by truth, reason, justice, and fairness” (dictionary.com).
This is the very reason we can trust Him in all He does.
“For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does. He loves what is just and good, the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.” (Psalm 33:4-5, NLT)
All He commands is absolutely true and will prove to be true repeatedly. It is His very character to be true and therefore, He cannot act otherwise or out of His character.
God will always and consistently be guided by truth, reason, justice, and fairness. He acts faithfully in this same manner as he has since the beginning.
His justice is not like a gavel which comes comes down on us. Rather His justice is right and fair and exercised through the filter of His love.
As His children, we are being changed and molded into His likeness. We can come to Him asking for wisdom and He will grant wisdom.
“For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding … Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go.” (Proverbs 2:6, 9, NLT)
With the provision of His wisdom, we can come to understand what is right, just, and fair. Our actions will reflect His character.
God loves what is just and good.
And He molds us into a people whose actions are just and good.
