Praising God from A to Z - Day 10

Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.  Isaiah 30:18
God is a God of justice. He is perfectly able to discern between right and wrong, good and evil. Because of this, we are all subject to his judgement. This does not sound like something to be grateful for but when you take into account the perfect sacrifice of his son Jesus to take our place and our rightful judgment, it is absolutely something to be grateful for!! It is because of God’s justice that we have been given the choice to accept this gift of salvation. Once we accept and believe, we are part of the family of God and no longer under condemnation. We are however called to be people who act justly (Micah 6:8). We are not called to judge others in the way that God does, but he wants us to be people that treat others fairly, even when they do not do the same to us. Since God is a just God, we can also know that all evil in the world will ultimately be dealt with by him. Remember today what God has done by sending his son to pay the price for your sins and thank him for his justice!
