Everyday I hear stories or receive prayers from everyday people like you and I who face unfairness and injustice. Crazy, stupid, way out stuff. Sometimes it happens to me…sometimes it looks impossible. It usually involes some John 10: 10.
10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
The thief…Satan…is always behind the dumb stuff. In that case, we do not need a pity party, we need to get before God and pray. Now, I have nothing against asking others to pray for me. I love a Prayer Of Agreement. Yet…there is something immense about getting before God and waiting for the answer to unfold trusting Him. God always has a plan. I heard a minister friend of mine say: “It’s like Chess and God is ALWAYS waiting to put the devil in checkmate.” That’s good. It’s true too.
Let me go get my popcorn because I want to be ready to see the devil get his next whooping!
If you know me…you know I’m not playing!
‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.
Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.
“Cursed is the man who withholds justice from the alien, the fatherless or the widow.” Then all the people shall say, “Amen!”
The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right.
I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy.
Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully.
The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.
Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.
Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless.
