Listen to me, my people; hear me, my nation. The law will go out from me; my justice will become a light to the nations. Isaiah 51:4
Without question, there is a ton of injustice in the world. We’ve all been victims of injustice to one degree or another. In fact, we’ve all been able to tell our stories to the authorities and still correct justice wasn’t handed out. That’s because, try as we might, we are imperfect people. Judges and juries are imperfect (which is a reason we can appeal cases). Sports referees are not perfect (hence we have instant replay). Parents are not perfect. With all of this imperfection, how will it all ever be made right?
There will be a Day when the Perfect Judge will mete out perfect justice to an imperfect world. Can you imagine? Wrongs will be righted. Injustices will be taken care of. The Book of Revelations even hints that “the leaves of the tree [of life] will be for the healing of the nations” Revelations 22:2. That speaks of justice and healing. Take a snapshot of the world we live in today. There are some very serious injustices occurring (more than a bad sports call or an overlooked misdemeanor could ever be). And yet, God will make it right.
Rejoice, brothers and sisters, that we’ll be able to witness true and absolute Justice one day. Until then, we can pray against the gross injustices that are taking place every single day.
