Scripture:

Revelation 16:7 And I heard the altar saying, “Yes, Lord God the Almighty, true and just are your judgments!”

Observation:

No matter how bad the wrath of God gets, it is justified. God is just and all his judgments are justified.

Application:

It is easy to wonder why God allows difficult things to happen. It is easy to judge Him for being judgmental. However John include this account of the altar of Heaven crying out for the justice of God. Though there are times when I might be on the other side of the chastisement, discipline and judgment of God, I can never call him unfair. Everything He does and every judgement He executes is just because He is Justice.

1. Trust his character when I don’t understand his judgment.

Prayer:

Father, when it seems that you are judging harshly, May I trust your character to give me perspective in the moment.
