More on God's Judgment

I've been thinking more about God’s judgment. I’ve been noticing a lot in my Bible readings lately, that the evil “withhold judgment” (esp. from the poor, the widow, the orphaned), and the righteous “judge justly”, and that the epitome of the “righteous judge” is the Lord Himself.  Judgment is not a bad thing in the Bible, it's a good thing. It's what the people of God long for. It's what the psalmists beg for over and over.

And yet “I am afraid of your judgments”. Because it’s wise to be so.

The righteous long for the just judgment of God, but that just judgment is also the reason that they greatly fear Him.

As they should.

And this is all good. This is all so good. Amen, come soon, Lord Jesus.

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
