Have you ever known God to be an unfair judge?

God is a judge who is perfectly fair.

Psalm 7:11 NLT

Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the Lord to handle the matter.
Proverbs 20:22

Where’s the referee?

In football, referees tell you whether a catch was made in bounds or not. In tennis, linesmen render instant judgment calls on whether a ball landed in or out. In baseball, umpires signal fair or foul.

But in life if often seems as though the game isn’t being played fairly and that no one is around to call foul. Flagrant violations of the rules go unnoticed, and so many people are playing out-of-bounds and getting away with it.

Sometimes we do see the harmful effects of playing out-of-bounds (see Psalm 7:15 or Numbers 32:23). But other times the Lord’s ruling extends farther than our mortal eye can see. Paul told the Athenians that God “has set a day for judging the world with justice” (Acts 17:31), so we can trust that he will one day set everything right, although we may not see his ruling in our lifetime.

Let us thank God that he is the just Judge over all the earth.

Fatherlike he tends and spares us;
Well our feeble frame he knows.
In his hands he gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.
CAROLINE SANDELL BERG
