“At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. (Psalm 75:2)
God’s judgements are always timely and fair. That’s what the psalmist praises God for (v1). There are times in our lives when we feel that God is delaying judgment on some injustice or wrong done against us, people we love or others in the world, and we may even question God’s timing and His care for those who are hurting. We can trust God that when He delays, it is not without purpose.
C. S. Lewis writes, “I do not know why there is this difference, but I am sure that God keeps no one waiting unless He sees that it is good for him to wait. When you do enter your room, you will find that the long wait has done you some kind of good which you would not have had otherwise.”
When we think about God’s judgment, what if He fully judged us for our sin before we came to profess faith in Jesus? Instead, we are grateful for God’s patience towards us. Enabling us to turn to Him to escape the eternal judgement we deserve (Romans 2:4). Let us trust that God will judge fairly, fully and in His perfect timing. Let us continue to do good and share the Gospel to those who need to hear such good news.
