Resting in Righteousness
There is an awkwardness in thinking about Judgement. Is God harsh? Or perhaps my own experience of personal injustice bites too deeply?
David cries out in a plea for protection from men terrible as lions.
He looks in his own heart. “Am I innocent?”
He thinks about God the righteous Judge, asking Him to deal with injustice. Evil and trouble bring their own judgment upon themselves.
He moves from plea to praise. “I will give thanks, I will depend on Him, I will praise Him.”
The Judgement Solution: If we reject Him as ruler, we reject Him as judge. We reject any possible justice, which all desire. Who could do a better job?
