Day 4: A Just God
I am thankful that we serve a just God. I cannot even tell you how many times over the last several months I have felt like the children of Israel. Some by my doing (caused by this stubbornness the Lord is trying to root out) and some by what has been done to me. I can really relate to the story in Exodus of the children of Israel and the taskmaster where the Lord is about to bring them out of Egypt and the Pharaoh unfairly increases their workload and takes away what they need to accomplish the task given. My shoulders are feeling that weight at this point in my life and at the very start of my day I found myself crying how long Lord until I exit my Egypt. I found myself murmuring about the unfairness if it all and “Poppa it’s just not right”.
My head was pounding, a lingering 6 day migraine had my vision blurred. I cried. I prayed. And then God gave me His strength to keep pressing. While I was reading and praying this evening, the Lord really spoke to me through Genesis 50:20, “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” Daughter, I see every tear you cry. I watch every hand that comes against you. I work it out for you in your favor in my timing. You stay the course, trust me. Trust what I have promised. Do what you do as unto me and I will handle the rest. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 You might be facing something in your life today that feels like the taskmaster is overwhelming you in a certain area or areas. You too may be wondering how is this fair, where is the justice? God sees everything and moves in realms we don’t see. You never know when He’s going to usher you out of your Egypt toward the destiny He has for you. It’s your job to stay the course and trust Him. “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” ~
Philippians 2:13 Don’t get side tracked by who’s done what and what’s fair and what’s not. God has YOU and that’s all that matters. He’s a just God, you are His child. There’s nothing else that needs to be said! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
“He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.”~ Psalm 33:5
💛 Thank You Father God for being just working on my behalf even in the realms I cannot see! 💛
