Justify God?

Justify God?

In an attempt to justify God, as though He needs us to protect His honor, we reason ourselves out of the pure truth of His Word (Joh. 17:17).

We have an internal clock that we set by our wishes and expectations. The tendency to judge God as slow to keep His promise is rampant in the human mind. What our Father has promised, He will do. Every time. Right on time. We are to rest in the promise and walk in the security of His abiding presence. The clock, nor it’s settings, are ours, they are His. The work is not ours, it is His. (2 Pet. 3:9; 1 Corinthians 4:5)

None of us considers ourselves to be a scorner or judge. After all, we believe God. But, if we are not careful, we can move into a mind set that is judgmental. Our struggle in faith for personal healing is one area where we can lose sight of the promise due to the press of the senses. The lack of visible finances is another weak spot. (Mar. 11:22)

Our Father said, “. . . no good thing will (I) withhold from them that walk uprightly” (Psa. 84:11). We need only to be about the Father’s business and He will provide all that is needed to accomplish our assigned task. Liberating power will be released, comforting words will come, the glory will manifest and the resource will arrive on time.

The Word of the Living God is filled with the historical record of God’s unlimited provision for those who love, and serve, Him. He does not play favorites, nor does He limit one and not another. Each of us according to our calling will be supplied with everything necessary to complete the work He has appointed us to do. Have faith, press in, love God, and love one another. You will know as you have been known. You will not be disappointed.
