“God is just. It’s His character, who He is, and it’s something He wants us to pursue. Justice seeks to make wrong things right. It is us working throughout our lives to fix injustices in the world around us. Every time we see something that’s wrong, our first response should be to pray about it. Our second response should be to ask ourselves, “What can I do about it?”
However, it doesn’t even occur to most of us. It’s like we look at things and think that it’s someone else’s problem, and we wish “they” would fix it! We wish “they” would do this and that.
Have you ever stopped to ask, “Who is they?” I think “they” is us, you and me! You may not be able to fix everything, but you can do something. Don’t look at injustice and do nothing. You must do something because God did not create you for inactivity and passivity. He created you for enthusiasm, zeal and passion. He put gifts in you to be used for His glory and to help other people. Live a life of justice today.
Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, don’t allow me to sit around wishing “they” would do something about the injustice in the world when I can do something. Fill me with boldness, and show me how to right the wrongs in the world around me.”
Thank you Joyce Meyer for another devotional excerpt that can really help a lot of believers. We see millions of people suffer and struggle day to day. Even though the Lord can easily solve the problems of the world…He wants his ministry (the body of Christ) to do their part & lend a helping hand. One person alone can’t do it all by theirself. Although with the body of Christ working together, many lives would be changed spontaneously!
Each time I pass by a homeless person on the street, I try to give them one of my cards of inspiration and hope. I don’t have all of the money in the world but the gospel of Jesus & his unfailing love is even more precious. Some people of the world may not see it more valuable than gold, but it surely is. I challenge you to lend a hand or words of wisdom to a few strangers this weekend. I’ll even challenge myself to do more than I have as well. In Jesus’ name, let’s do it together!!! Amen!! ❤️
