Clouds and darkness surround Him;
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
The LORD executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.
For the LORD loves justice,
And does not forsake His saints…
He loves justice so much, it is mentioned over 500 times in the Bible!
Solomon didn’t ask for wisdom as so many people think; he asked for an understanding heart to judge the people of God. The request pleased God so much that he not only granted him wisdom such as no one had before or after him, He also gave Solomon riches and honor like no one else had in all of Solomon’s days. (1 Kings 3:5-14)
The Lord was displeased when there was no justice (Isaiah 59:15)
If you study justice in the Bible, you will notice that after justice is mentioned, a pattern of commandments to look after the widow and the orphan, to help the poor, to pray for the sick, and bring light to those in darkness.
After forgiving those how have hurt you, ask God for justice…keep asking Him, and wait for it. While you’re waiting, help others. God’s compensation for what you’ve been through far outweighs the hurt you suffered.
