Proverbs 21:3 To do righteousness and justice
Is desired by the Lord more than sacrifice.
Proverbs 28:5 Evil men do not understand justice,
But those who seek the Lord understand all things.
Jeremiah 5:1 Roam to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, And look now and take note. And seek in her open squares, If you can find a man, If there is one who does justice, who seeks truth,
Proverbs 29:27 An unjust man is abominable to the righteous, And he who is upright in the way is abominable to the wicked.
Many seek the ruler’s favor,
But justice for man comes from the Lord.
Isaiah 30:18 God Is Gracious and Just, therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.
Most people crave justice, and fairness between themselves and others, and a growing level of injustice in the world creates unrest, insecurity, and anxiety.
I can’t fix the world, but I can fix me. I can choose to long for Jesus, to seek Him with all my heart, and to love Him and then He will give me great peace, hope, confidence, and joy. I am praying that in the midst of the fear of COVID, the angst of political division and conflict, the anxiety of future financial upheaval, and the feeling of bondage that comes from an oppressive government that many people will seek Jesus. The Bible promises that if we sincerely seek Him we will find Him and if we draw near to Him he will draw near to us. He indeed does give us peace, hope, security, and joy.
